Heated, Olympic sized 50 meter swimming pool with ten, seven and five meter diving platforms as well as three and one meter spring boards. Curly slides for the ride of your life or the new speed slides shoot you down at over 35 miles per hour. Lots of grass space for picnicking or you can purchase food at the on-site grill. Outdoor pool is open the summer months only. the Indoor Aquatic Center is open all year with a poolside climbing wall, springboards and basketball hoops. Heated floors throughout the dressing rooms provide warmth and comfort for all swimmers. Coming in winter of 2013 is an indoor kiddie play area with all the fun a zero depth splash and play area can provide. Year round fun coupled with access to the World Famous Hot Pools make this a must see and do destination.

Our kids loved the Olympic Swimming Complex! They had a blast on the slides, and loved the ones that go over the highway out there.

This the ultimate grandkids excursion. I would rather be in the hot pools but the kids just love this place. Enough water to keep them happy all day and enough shade that I can read, do my Pinterest, write a note to mom and say hello to the world on facebook. And at the end of the day, my grandkids...

We went here over labor day weekend. The first thing they asked us was if we were intoxicated and if we had alcohol in our cooler in front of our 6 and 13 year old. They also followed by telling us this was a family place. Apparently two grown women need to know that just in case we were lesbians... More

The policy of the Lava Hot Springs Olympic Swimming Complex, Indoor Aquatic Center and Idaho's World Famous Hot Pools is that no alcohol and no glass containers are allowed in the facilities. Glass containers aren't allowed for obvious reasons, if one is accidently dropped it poses a severe threat to bare feet in and around the pools. Alcohol is not... More

I dropped my 12-year old daughter and her friend off here for a few hours. It was a safe place for them to be, as they had to take a swimming test first and everything was monitored fully. The staff was friendly.

The kids loved it. We did the package deal that included the hot pools and it saves you $4-$5 for each person. We will be back with kids next year.

Once again we journeyed to Lava Hot Springs for a fun filled weekend of tubing the river, enjoying the local shops, and finally...spending the day at the Olympic pool. With the 10 meter platform, 4 thrilling slides, a indoor kiddy pool...there is something for everyone. My kids...and grandkids look forward to this every year!!!

We did not realize that Lava Hot Springs is such a popular family camping, resort town. The town only has 400 residents, yet provide a host of activities for all to enjoy. The water slides were the most popular with the kids at this complex. Bring a ten or awningt to erect for shade.
