went here in July a few years ago-visited it twice-price back then was $8 for as lng as you wanted-very clean pools of water-staff was in pools with leaf nets skiming all day lng. Pools are set on a hillside with different degrees of heat, one of the lower pools has a sandy bottom. Bring your own drinks and food.... More

The 6 mile drive in was the worst and I am used to forest service roads. Many huge potholes very very rough road. Don't even attempt it in a low clearance vehicle over 5mps and be very careful if it's dark out. The actual pool is nice with perfect temperature and great to be able to have a beer and... More

My friend and I drove the 6.5 miles to find ourselves among two or three hundred people "enjoying" the Gold Fork Spring. If you want to drive 21/2 hours from Boise and then another poorly plowed snow covered road to join a "sea" of humanity, this is the place for you! The dressing facility is one-fourth of a yurt for... More

Given that the road was a slush-filled mess, I can't say we were ecstatic with the lack of customer service and trash floating in the pools. Overall the pools were overcrowded (it was a Saturday so take that with a grain of salt) and the Yurt smelled like a locker room that hadn't been cleaned in decades. The woman working... More

Very rustic, not over developed like some other springs. Don't go if you're looking for a resort style springs, but expect a pleasant experience with pools the perfect temperature. No modern facilities, just a yurt and porta potties, which is why we love it.

This is a super clean hot springs in a beautiful location. We came in the afternoon after skiing, and it could not have been nicer. Small heated yurt changing area - but beautiful pools, hotest around 103 degrees. Well worth the short 6 mile drive off the highway to get to.

My friend and I visited the hot springs together on a girls' weekend trip. We stayed in McCall, so it was a bit of a drive. We were both excited to experience what we had heard so much about. We arrived at night, and viewed the fog as it drifted off the springs and faint glow of the tiki torches.... More

Went there with my family and even the children had a great time soaking and getting the muscles relaxed and warm. Charming with snow all around and near zero weather. We have enjoyed thie springs in October also and will be going back again

After several days in McCall Idaho decided to venture out to this facility be prepared in the winter for a long drive on a narrow road. several times had to back up to allow a car to pass in the other direction But the trip is worth it. It's reasonability priced. However you need to bring your own refreshments none... More
