4 of the Best Stanley, Idaho, Hot Springs and Others in the Sawtooth Mountains
Challis Hot Springs

The Large Pool is regulated to 00-102 degrees Fahrenheit for comfortable swimming. The Therapy Pool is unregulated; it is usually anywhere from 105 to 107 degrees Fahrenheit.

Kirkham Hot Springs
The Kirkham Hot Springs are absolutely breathtaking. Travel down the staircase next to the Payette River to reach these soaking pools surrounded by waterfalls. Let the warm water soak over you as you relax under these natural showers! Each geothermal pool here varies in temperature, so we recommend sticking a toe in to test which one you’d like to enjoy.
Sunbeam Hot Springs
The Sunbeam Hot Springs are user-created pools with gravel and sand bottoms. Rocks have been piled around the spring source to trap warm waters for soaking and splashing around. This is one of the most interesting Stanley, Idaho, hot springs because it is on the site of a historic bathhouse. While you are not able to enter the bathhouse, many appreciate the reminder of the past.
The Boat Box
The Boat Box is one of the most unique Stanley, Idaho, hot springs! There is both a wooden soaking tub that can be used year-round and rock-walled seasonal pools next to the river. The soaking tub is a favorite because you can adjust the temperature. Put the stopper in the tub, then let it fill with hot water. If it’s too hot, you can use the accompanying bucket to cool it down with river water!
