The groundskeeper in the golf cart is really rude and and confrontational. The girl in the office had issues with basic math. The location itself is beautiful. If we didn't have to interact with employees it would have been great.

Great area, clean, friendly staff. The Hot spring is a great place to relax after a week of work or play. The campground is also very open and free of debris and brush.

Stayed at Challis Hot springs for the weekend for an ultra I was running taking place in the area. Mike was very accommodating with my early schedule. The pools we very clean and nice to soak in after a hard day on the trails.

We stayed at the RV park. It was a nice place, outdoorsy and close to nature. Fire pits available and picnic tables. The pool was amazing!

Went to go stop there and swim and they said no kids allowed - unless you pay for overnight camping. Have camped there in the past and they said no floating devices at all. Well, try holding a 2 year old for hours of swimming....More
