Kirkhams Hot Springs

Kirkham Road

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.

Crowded and garbage everywhere. The use here has skyrocketed within the past few years. It is rare to get the pool to yourself. It is a beautiful hot springs along side the river. Its very cool to see kayakers and rafters float by from the springs by the water.

Beautiful location! Relatively popular place - filled with lots of great natural springs and wonderful scenery.

Great place to visit. It's pretty easy to notice from vehicle traffic. The outhouses are rather disgusting and smell most. To get to the hot springs you have to hike down or around. Some spots can be slippery and I've seen a number of people fall. Once you get to the hot springs, they are pretty hot in most places but the pools are fairly shallow and fairly small. There are 2 large pools that can fit about 6-8 people depending on how you sit. There are about 4-6 other pools that can fit 2-3 people comfortably. I've been 3 times and it has been surprisingly busy for such a remote location.

Can be super busy. The campground is hit or miss. Great time if you catch it at the right time

The waterfalls are at the right temperature, the pools are small and some can be really hot (or cold). Watch out some of the rocks can be quite sharp and slippery at the same time.
