Lovely area. Water levels were too low at the end of July to really enjoy. There were pools to enjoy, but most scalding hot as not enough cool water to join the hot. But it was worth the visit.

This is one of my favorite spots. It’s just a little hole in the ground hotsprings right next to the Jefferson river. It’s beautiful there. There were actually fireflies when I went once in May.

HEADS UP! Went to Renova yesterday and it was entirely flooded. A local told us there's a 40 year flood which has resulted in high water levels and tons of mosquitoes too. However, if you're in the area, the drive down to the river is beautiful in itself. We even saw a young moose staring at us from about 20 yards away!

Best to visit in fall when the leaves change and the air is turning cold.
Not usually overly populated but is only one official rock walled spring so it might not be the best choice if you don't want to soak in close quarters with strangers.
If you are lucky enough to get it to yourself it is quite a serene experience.
Not a public pool like some "hot springs". Just a spring on the side of the mountain.

Nice little hot springs if it's near your destination. Nothing to go too far out of your way for. You can drive right up to them. Pool gets pretty hot, there was a bucket to add cool water, but that seems to have disappeared. Smells like sulfur, but not bad enough to send you running. It is a beautiful drive down a dirt/gravel road. There is also a firepit nearby so you can build a campfire.
