It’s a long drive up through the mountains. We found the hot springs but the shacks and tubs were gone. The hot spring is boil from the ground, it’s extremely hot. It’s also on private property. Hopefully they make it into a resort or something. July 2018

The hot springs is on Private property and is not part of the Boise NF. It's a very dirty place that no one takes care of. Trash and vandalism are rampant.

This is a unique place to go take a natural Hot Springs. It is a beautiful place to have a picnic. No hiking required. You can drive right to the Hot Springs. There is only one shack left but there is one outside as well. Well worth the experience.
