Stopped in with some friends to soak in the mineral pools and they were great. Very soothing and peaceful.

Camped with my sister and her family who come here every year, she was apprehensive because of the managers previous treatment, very rude. Good news!! The rude "pool nazi" (another reviewers label) is gone and the family has taken over management again. Mike was super friendly and accommodating. It got cold and we wanted to plug our electric blanket in... More

My husband and I make a point to come here at least once (sometimes twice) during camping season. It's a bit of a drive from Boise - but this quiet, friendly place is worth every mile. The new managers seem to have found their groove. Making our reservation and then checking in all went smoothly. We knew the holiday weekend... More

My wife and I visited this location on 8/28/16. As someone who is not camping proper educate says you should always check in the office especially on private property. Husband/wife are the new managers - wide range of views from those that have posted their experience. Our experience was great - wife asked the husband to show us around and... More

We weren't sure what to expect before we arrived, but we were greeting by a very pleasant and attentive staff. The accommodations were comfortable and spacious, and we even had our own bathroom. The pools were very clean and comfortable, unlike previous experiences I've had at other facilities. The surroundIng landscape is gorgeous, with mountains in every direction. And last... More

We were going to stay here and also swim in the pool. We drove for hours and when we finally arrived we got out of our car and just innocently walked over to the pool to see it before we booked our room. An employee briskly walked up to us and said this was a private entity and what did... More

First big mistake, we booked this place based on 35 people out of 44 giving it the full five star thumbs up. When we hear the words Hot Springs I guess we're spoiled, we have visions of the beautiful hot springs in the Canadian Rockies and elsewhere in the US - this is not one of the pretty ones at...

I stayed here with my mother, my 13 year old son, and my 6 year old granddaughter. When I called they had already booked their room that is for families with children, but they made an exception and gave us 2 rooms on the 2nd floor. They asked us to please make sure our kids were well behaved so as... More

We were in Challis for just one evening and had breakfast here before we left. Big beautiful outdoor patio and the indoor dining room is quaint and cozy. We'll be having dinner here next time we're in town.
