Kirkhams Hot Springs
Nestled on the South Fork of the Payette River below a highway campground, a staircase leads adventurers down to the soaking pools and small steaming waterfalls.
Amazing must see! Cold day but springs were hot and a beautiful site to see. Road and parking lot close by but river is loud so you still feel in a nice hideaway without having to make a hiking trip. Went off season so didnt require payment. Restrooms still open no shower. Also no trash cans during off season so pack in and PACK OUT! Picnic tables available. Photos do this place no justice. **there is a gate at parking entrance so I do Not know if they close it later in winter season and I just happened to go when pmt wasn't required before locking gates. Normally $5 day use or $15-30 to camp.
Relaxing and rejuvenating experience soaking in the springs among the beautiful Boise national forest. The drive to the springs particularly lovely during the fall time with the changing colors and observing the craggy mountainsides.
Really interesting spot to stop, camp, or just sit in the hot springs. Water runs down the hillside in a number of places with pools big enough to sit in just above the river. A waterfall on the opposite bank and a section of rapids make this a very scenic spot. Just $5 to visit for the day.
Fantastic place! I love how there are levels of heat in the hot springs as the water runs down the hills. Choose the temp you like and sit in the pool!
Very beautiful scenery and its looks pretty roomy for spreading out multiple visitors.
