We went out of our way to be able to visit Maple Grove Hotsprings having discovered it on a previous trip on a day when they had no availability. We visited on a 4 hour day pass so we weren't staying there. The pools of varying temperature were all amazing, the leaves on the maples were turning red for the fall. We swam in the reservoir as well even though the water temperature was probably around 60. We took one of the canoes out for a float as well which would have really been a lot of fun, but the boat took on about a gallon of water per minute and required beaching to drain it after paddling much more than 10 minutes. Could have been made serviceable in seconds with some duct tape but I didn't have any with me.

Two night stay and wish it had been longer! It was a wonderful way to cleanse the mind and soul especially during the pandemic. Accommodations were perfect. Soaking pools were clean and well maintained. The staff is knowledgeable, friendly and readily available. Felt refreshed and rejuvenated when our stay ended. Can’t wait to go back!

I went to Maple Grove looking for quiet safe space to rejuvinate and heal from the damage of chemical treatment and radiation for breast cancer. I met the most hospitable and loving group of people (and one special little dog, Foxy). They tend to the land and water at Maple Grove with love and care. The hot tubs were wonderful and healing. The meeting room was available to use for making my own coffee or preparing my own food. I am still having separation anxiety for having to leave. I will return whenever I am able. Love to all

My husband and I have been frequent customers at MGHS since 2005. We loved the place from the minute we found it and feel like we've lost a good friend with the change of ownership. Barb and Stephanie made us feel at home with their personal service, vibe and care they brought to the place. We felt liked valued frequent soakers, greeted by name and rewarded by getting every 10th soak free (you mentioned that you'll start a customer base online and will keep track that way, and I've shared my email with you, never heard back from you). Management was approachable, if we ever had an issue with anything, things got fixed promptly, and special requests got granted. The fact that there weren't strict rules about everything distinguished MG from other springs, where customers are just treated as numbers. We've spend the night whenever we could afford to, but most times just had to settle for a soak after a ski or hike in the Bear River Range. We enjoyed having a couple of beers during our soak, and never got drunk. We usually avoided the few, rowdy late afternoon/evening hours on the weekend, when the place got taken over by rowdy locals. We've seen rowdy partying at many hot spring places, whether alcohol was allowed or not - it is an issue completely separate from having a couple of beers during a relaxing soak. One place seemed to have success by putting up a sign that prohibited alcohol, with a policy of not enforcing it on the peaceful, regular guests. Unlike Maple Grove, they had a gathering for regulars, where they listened to ideas and comments on how to regulate this issue, among others. Even though we didn't get everything we proposed, we felt like valued customers whose opinions counted. MG is a private business and you can run it as you please, but please consider the natural treasure and unique experiences you're depriving your most loyal followers of. Sad, what a loss!

Property is under change of ownership and the new owner is only on site part time. The office was staffed by the previous owners son who showed no interest. The office was poorly lit in disarray quite dirty and on a counter had what appeared to be days old food. The changing room was cold substandard with no place to secure your personal belongings. We were told the pools are drained weekly cleaned and chlorinated. The water was green and chunky with floating algae. Empty, partially full and full alcohol containers littered the areas around the pools as well as other assorted litter. I mentioned this to the office attendant, the only visible staff member, who only shrugged and never left the office. The remainder of the grounds showed neglect. There were two partially completed yurts that appeared to be abandoned. Open ditches construction material litter areas as well as two very old rental junk trailers. Everything needed pick-up, clean-up straighten-up and painting. The unpaved road on the property was very pot holed and in one place if it rained could be very difficult to get through. On the plus side the location is beautiful and somewhat remote with little light pollution that really is attracting. It is a shame that a gem in rough and million dollar property is Being neglected And run into the ground.

Obviously, not all things are on an equilibrium from horrible to wonderful. A primitive campground and a 4 star hotel can be wonderful even if one is dirty, uncomfortable and has no bathroom. That said, what makes Maple Grove nice is it's not crowded and very un-pretentious. The water is hot, ranging in temp from 100 - 113F while we were there. The 3 round stone hot tubs are nice enough. The larger cement pool is kind of scummy looking but not bad to play in. The owners are nice and helpful. The lake is beautiful, the camp sites nice and the bird watching great. Two new yurts look very nice. We rented the vintage silver Airstream trailer that is parked next to the office building. It had beds and kept us dry when it rained. That's the only good I can say about it. The trailer raises expectations and crushes them. It's run down and has mice. It has a permanently locked bathroom and a little kitchen, but no matter, there is no water. Don't put food or clothes in cupboards or drawers as they are broken, dirty and home to little creatures. We learned you need to put food in animal proof containers. We think a skunk lived under it during the winter. It might be worth $10 to stay dry, but it was $75 a night and an extra $10-$30 if you wanted propane for a heater and stove. In the office you can use the bathroom and sink but only from 10 am to 10 pm. The bathroom is small, toilet clogs and may be short on toilet paper. At a campground with an outhouse you might be content, but when it appears to be more you are disappointed. If you want a place that is uncrowded, out of the way, has good people and don't mind roughing it I recommend you check it out but camp or bring your own trailer.

3 Stars because it wasn't terrible, but I would give the trailer itself a measly 1 star.

We rented one of their trailers called the "Detroiter"--a "charming" 1955 beauty that was in far worse shape than the pictures online depicted. So, just to enlighten any who are thinking about it: The ceiling is sagging down in several places from water damage and black mold growing around everywhere. The back bedroom reeks of urine. The bathroom is unusable of course but reeks also, probably hasn't been cleaned in a decade. They do advertise no power, but we were mislead that there was a "propane" stove and stove top coffee pot implying the stove at least worked. No it did not. Carpet is nasty. Several of the windows are broken and the screens are ripped. The screen door is duct taped. The footon was broken and sagging, but was ok for one small person to sleep on. No curtains. I am disappointed in the lack of honesty about this trailer... we would have appreciated a warning! I hope that with new ownership this can be remedied. Either get rid of the old thing, or fix it up and it COULD be charming, OR at least tell your guests what a surprise they were in for.

Also, the "community kitchen" is right in the office or pool house. It was not crowded during our stay so it wouldn't have been a big deal if we had needed to use it just don't expect any privacy. Bathrooms/dressing rooms are not oozing with privacy either.

The campground itself is not entirely well-kept but we enjoyed our stay regardless with the beauty of the reservoir and relaxation of the hot springs. Ps, the pools are nothing fancy, either. Cement, a little slimy.

We arrived at 10am on a weekday, waited around until 10:15, no one ever came to the office. We walked around the hot tubs which were green and not hot, property appears in disrepair and honestly, we wondered if they are out of business. Called several times since, get a pleasant answering message, never a live person. Left a message and they have not called back. Do not drive out of your way to get there! Too bad, as the setting truly is fabulous on Oneida Narrows and could be a gold mine if managed and maintained.

It started with a phone call to see if we could check in early and what was available with the room (ie:electricty or sockets?, check in and out time). with the answers: "I guess so" and "I dunno". Once we had arrived there was no verification process to even check in, we could have been anyone and said we rented a yurt and ok we got it! there is no key to the yurt so no way to lock your things in there if you are soaking or anything. Went inside and it was FILTHY! When i sat on the bed a cloud of dust came up, there were dead bugs all over the concrete floor (not even a rug to wipe your feet on) and all the furniture : the bed, the chairs, & the table. Plus a very unattrasctive fly strip full of flies hanging right over the bed. I get this is the outdoors but i dont have that many bugs in my tent when I go camping!!! I had emailed them the day before to ask about the accomidations and the answered me right after we had checked in...if yoiu can call it that. I just thing at $89 a night i should have to sleep in a single mans hunting cabin that has never beed cleaned!!! The bathroom was the cleanest and nicest part of the wholr facility. This was our favorite place last year and the new managment has totally ruined it for us!! So we actually left and went to stay elsewhere that actually felt clean! Needless to say we will not be going back to them again!
