$5.00 fee covers parking. Beware very jagged rocks. You need to wear old sneakers or water shoes to walk down to the springs. Also, it gets packed fast and there is not enough springs; therefore, go before 10 am.

Have stopped here many times most recently on a rafting trip with Payette River Co. The BLM always turns the heat up when we arrive. Very relaxing. You can also camp or rv here.

Night time is the best time. Highly recommend camping at the Kirkham Campground or one of the other campgrounds close by.

Can be hot to camp here, so I recommend camping just down the road at one of the sites along the river and driving down to visit the hot springs
