As we drove over miles of dirt road, we wondered if Gold Fork Hot Springs stays open during the winter. I hope someone clears the roads because this is a great place to visit any time of year. You might expect something seedy or rundown,...More

Six miles up rough gravel roads to find this gem! There are five pools of various temperatures. All a very clean an one has a sand bottom. You can bring your own food and drinks (no glass). Can't wait to go back in the winter!

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.
