This is a gem of a place if you can go without running water, electricity, or central heat/air. A wood stove provided us with heat for the two days we stayed and each cabin has an outhouse. There was a wall of cut wood to feed the stove and oil lamps for light in the evening.
The spring was AWESOME. The water was clear and you can barely smell the sulfur. The pool was well constructed with smooth pebbles on the floor. The main pool was like a warm swimming pool while the "hot" spring was over 100 degree F. It was one of the hottest I have visited. Because of its remote location it was not too crowded on a Sunday and the view was lovely. At night you could see thousands of stars and hear the wood crackling in the stove.
Just come prepared for "basic" conditions - or stay at a motel in nearby McCall and just visit the springs. I have a real appreciation for pioneer living after that weekend.
