Dating back to the late 1800’s, The Springs is steeped in history.
It was once known as Warm Springs Resort and was 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.

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.
