One of my favorite campgrounds in Idaho. If you're here during the summer be prepared for the heat. Most campsites are in the full sun with no shade. There are two vault toilets and two water pumps. There is a man-made hot spring pool in the front of the campground which is beautiful and amazing. Then there is the natural hot spring area right next to the Payette River. You might see kayakers paddling by down the river. If you aren't in the mood for camping you can pay a small parking fee just to use the hot spring. Overall, this is the best hot springs I've ever been to. The whole campground is surrounded by ridiculously beautiful scenery. Highly recommended.
