One of the best hot springs resorts that I have visited. A quick visit to an odd fellow in a yurt, $8.00 (and we did get our change), and you have a full day long access to six different pools with various temperature. There is a dressing room in the yurt and some snacks. No glass in the resort, but... More

Nestled into the side of a mountain down a quiet dirt road, this small day resort appears--one of the best things I did on this trip to Idaho! Walking in from the parking lot, I had no idea what to expect. $8pp gets you in, the staff was pleasant and shared their stories about Idaho and even recommended some hikes.... More

Gold Fork HS is a great place to relax and unwind. There are 6 pools ranging in temps from the mid-80's to 105+. We take the family here every time we are in the Cascade/Donnelly area. It is an easy road to travel on and only 6.5 miles of the highway. the downside is they only take cash and it... More

No shade in the parking lot. The area is clean and pleasant but the pools are mostly too warm for summer daytime. There was an $8 per adult charge and I gave the clerk a $20 for the two of us. He put it in the drawer and walked away, never offering the $4 change. A while later I aked... More

I have not been to many hot springs but this was really great. We went during the winter and found it very refreshing after skiing earlier in teh day.

This was awesome! They have graduated pools there that go from really hot to cool. It felt so good so be in the springs hot water. Hotter the better for me. I would take my own snacks and drinks though as they have a limited supply but were gracious and did the best they could that day.

Our first trip to Gold Forks Hot Springs was a real treat. We had a toddler along, so we could choose which of the 4 pools (each with a different temperature) we wanted to enjoy. The springs were clean and well laid out. There is little to no shade, so bring a hat, sunglasses and lots of sunblock if it's... More

This was our first time to this hot springs and we had a great time. My 9 year old and husband enjoyed traveling between all the pools and my 11 year old and I mainly stayed in the second pool. I felt the lower pools were cold. The changing room wasn't bad and didn't have a bad smell and I... More
