I still dream about this place. We went a few times in the winter. Yes the dirt road is a little scary, but we have a minivan that did just fine. Being in the warm water with snow all around and the stars shining so...More

I found the experience not worth the drive or cost. The pools were dirty (went on a Sunday). The road is horrible and you could wind up with car repairs afterward. The owner is unresponsive to phone messages or emails. The owner will close the...More

didn't like the sandy one, and the first of the three tiers was also nice. We went on a Monday and despite it being the day before the cleaning, the pools seemed clean enough. The outhouses were over due though. There might be better hot...More

We go there every couple of months. It is the cleanest hot springs we have been to in Idaho. They have several pools that are at different temperatures.

Always a nice place to relax after a day of playing. Drive defensively! It’s a rural road with twists and turns so slow down and enjoy the peaceful beauty of the area.

Visited the hot springs after a weekend at tamarack. When you turn off the highway the road can be sketchy due to snow, would recommend 4x4/AWD to be safe. The place is so worth it, isolated and very well kept. The hippie lady that works...More

A great place to stay is about 7 miles away in the town of Cascade. The Ashley Inn is a great place to use as base camp after a day of hiking or soaking. My family loves its warmth and charm!

We liked the Best Western In McCall. It's a little further than Donnelly, but it's very centrally located for vacationing.
