Year round world class hot pools! Relax in the odor free, natural hot mineral water that bubbles directly into the bottom of the soaking pools at 112 cooling to 102 degrees F. Summer Olympic swimming complex, waterpark and indoor aquatic center provide excitement for the entire family. You can scream down the waterslides at the summer fun Olympic Swimming Complex or dive from the 10 meter diving platforms. Play in the year round Indoor Aquatic Center with Portneuf Kiddie Cove year round. Camping, lodging, food and fun are located next door in the town of Lava Hot Springs.

We visited in the middle of summer. The water was so hot. And it was hot outside. So we ended up only staying about 20 minutes. Paid $10 per person. The water was clean and had no odor. I would love to visit again, but...More

Stopped here for the afternoon and was very happy. Relaxing time in the Hot Springs pool. Weekday visit was not crowded.

We went to Steamboat Springs in 2014 and visited their Old Town Hot Springs. Although we had a blast there, it really was more of a water park. Idaho's World Famous Hot Pools is not like that. This is strictly hot pools. The pools start...More

We went around 8pm to check it out. Lots of families there. The hotter the pool the fewer people, especially kids. The water was hot and clean. Pools are marked with temperature so you know what you're getting into. Private changing stalls were roomy and...More

We stayed at great hotel but have enjoyed public hot tubs in past and they did not disappoint. We relaxed!

Stopped on our drive from Salt Lake to Yellowstone. Only did the hot pools, which are like large Jacuzzis. Water park looked awesome, but didn't have the time. Walked to the river and waded in to a sand bar. All in all, very nice.

Nice clean hot pools with a range of temperatures. The covers over them provide shade for those preferring not to limit sun exposure. In general, a nice facility.

Was uncrowded when we arrived on a Tuesday at noon. Clean and pleasant everywhere. The pools start at 102 degrees up to the hottest about 112. I could barely take the 105, but that's me. Spent most time in the 102. We left after about...More
