There wasn't a lot of people, but it's probably not the best time to visit in the summer. The pools were very clean. We spent time in the pool, playing chess, went down to the creek for a picnic, very lovely day. Can't wait till...More

We really enjoyed these Hotsprings, the main pool was perfect temperature and really liked how it had the big boulders right there. My only complaints were the road there (bumpy) and the changing room smelt like cat piss or I would have gave 5 stars.

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...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,...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...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...More

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...More

A great place to stay is about 7 miles away in the town of Cascade. The Ashley Inn is a great place to use as base camp after a day of hiking or soaking. My family loves its warmth and charm!

We liked the Best Western In McCall. It's a little further than Donnelly, but it's very centrally located for vacationing.
