Idaho City Hot Springs Resort

Dating back to the late 1800’s, The Springs is steeped in history. Once known as Warm Springs Resort, and discovered by early settlers, it has served as a post office, police station, saloon and overnight stage stop for weary travelers. After changing owners a few times, it was allowed to recuperate for many years from severe overuse, and since has undergone acts of reforestation and rehabilitation. As of February 14, 2013, and after investing $2.7 million in upgrades and new construction, The Springs in Idaho City is once again open to the public for enjoying natural hot mineral waters, relaxation and new memories for generations to come.

The Springs Resort Facilities

Indulge in the many options for your soaking and rejuvenation needs. Take a dip in the 40′ x 80′ geothermal pool or for some extra heat, kick back in the 16′ hot tub clocking in at 104*. While you’re there, try out the steam room to find that higher level of relaxation. In the summer months play on the splash deck in 16 jets of cold water, extremely invigorating! Grab the fluffy towel and simply relax.

While snow is abound and winter temps are chilling, enjoy the ice and snow free walkways. Geothermal water has been pumped throughout, including the changing rooms, to keep those tootsies warm. The main lobby features a cozy fireplace to sit and share stories. Winter months also feature a bonfire at the edge of the pools, allowing warm-up time when you’re not soaking but still want to be outdoors. Intimate lighting follows the footpaths and buildings for easy navigation and a perfect setting for stargazing from the pools.

No Soap, Shampoo or BIO-Soap/Shampoo Allowed in Hot Springs! Avoid Being Fined!

Public hot springs are not bathing facilities and do not have 'plumbing' like that of commercial, improved hot springs. Soap and shampoo (including biodegradable soap and shampoo) do not completely breakdown naturally. This pollutes our water systems (ingested by fish, animals, humans) at or near the source. This is also illegal in most wilderness and public lands areas.
