Beautiful. Arrived early and besides one other person had the place to myself. Beautiful views, hot and clear water, and serenity.

Great!

Day use parking is 7am - 9pm but I got there around 6am and the entire campground was empty. I had the place to myself for 2 hours and it was amazing!

Magical place on earth. River can be turquoise, tons of hot ponds and hot waterfalls. Very popular for a reason - pick an off hour or keep walking past the crowds to explore quieter parts of the river. Was happy to find a quiet pool and watch a deer pick some choice leaves off a bush across the river. Follow my instagram for more adventures @julie_journeys

Great spot. Definitely get there early to avoid crowds but since there aren’t too many pools it doesn’t get too busy anyway. Definitely wear water shoes or bring hiking shoes to navigate the slipper rocks, it’s worth it!

Highly recommended! It is key to get there early (before 10:30am) in order to get a pool to sit in and not experience too many people. Beautiful and relaxing. My 8yo enjoyed it thoroughly, though a couple of the pools were too hot for him, so test them out first. $5 cash day fee to park.

Fun! However there were more people than I care for and lots of trash. I usually carry a grocery bag to collect trash but forgot it this trip. Great variety of pools at different temperatures.

Great hot springs. Short walk from the parking lot. Pools are great temperature, deep enough to soak in. Lots of wildlife in the area. Pretty crowded for a Saturday night in mid February. Definitely recommend these hot springs, just don’t expect too much privacy.

Planned a trip to Seattle from Utah and mapped this as one of our quick stops en route to our final destination. It was awesome! Only a handful of people were there. I didn’t plan on getting on the water, but I ended up on it. It was great! My only advice is take some water or electrolyte drinks to keep you hydrated. The rocks are slippery as well just a heads up.

Not much of a hike. But who cares. The Hot Springs are the main event. Bring shoes to hike to a from the springs!

This is probably my favorite place ever! Just be careful on the rocks because they are slippery and several of us fell

Loved this Hot Springs! Very busy though, so if you are looking for something private, or with less traffic, this wouldn't be a great choice. Lots of pools to choose from! Some up top, and some below along the river.

I took my parents to these hot springs in July and had an awesome time. Very short easy hike to get to the springs which was great for the older folks. The springs are next to the river which is great for mixing the cold and hot water to get your desired temperature.

This is a beautiful spring located in a very nice campground along the Banks-Lowman highway. It is a short walk down to the river and a little bouldering to get to the good stuff. Early morning in the spring and fall is the best time to check it out. This spring is very popular. Remember to pack out all garbage and keep this area beautiful for future generations!
