I have been to the hot springs three times since moving to the area almost 8 months ago. It is one of the best bargains in the area.

We were in Salt Lake City for the week and wanted to see Idaho so were looking for something unique to see that wasn't too far of a drive. This was perfect. The concrete floors of the locker room were heated but not the sidewalks outdoors so that was a bit chilly but once you got into the hot pools... More

We love going to the hot springs every year around Christmas and enjoying an end of the year getaway. The pools are a MUST as far as bucket list experiences. Relaxing and enjoyable. I always return home refreshed and can't wait to go back next year.

Very relaxing, clean, and unique. If you've been driving for a long time, definitely worth the detour from I15

We like this tiny town with the world-class hot spring pools. The price is moderate, the pools are hot, hotter and hottest, lots of families visit, and the natural surroundings, including a high rock hill with a railroad track running by way overhead make the experience all the more charming.
