Nice hot springs

Fun place to get away for a soak. You can bring food and drinks but can only bring water into the pool. Several pools with various levels of heat. Some sand floor, some... read more

I love natural hot springs. There are few things as relaxing as lazing about in hot water – rain or shine. I recently took a day trip to Gold Fork with some of my family members. As we soaked in the hot water there was a combination of rain, sun, wind, and even snow! That’s normal in Idaho. Aside from... More

Went on New Years and it was packed. After waiting in line for the changing room we made our way through the crowd into the springs. The springs were relaxing when people weren't bumping into you. If you go try to miss the peak days. If you do go on busy days have your suit on and be ready to... More

Fun place to get away for a soak. You can bring food and drinks but can only bring water into the pool. Several pools with various levels of heat. Some sand floor, some concrete. Cleaner than many hot tubs I've been to but don't expect level of public swimming pool. Some shade and umbrellas to beat the heat. I recommend... More

This is a relaxing place to hang out for an hour or two. The place is about 6 miles off the beaten path, through various ranches. Oh, did I mention on a dirt road? The pools are clean and are gravity fed, from the hottest pool to the coolest at 102. There are plenty of picnic tables, umbrellas and chairs... More

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
