Amenities at the Challis Hot Springs include an eight room Bed & Breakfast, 33 RV camping sites with water and electrical hook-ups, and 13 tent camping sites. We have two soaking pools that are spring fed: a large outdoor pool that is maintained at a temperature suitable for swimming, and a smaller indoor therapy pool that is not temperature regulated. The bottoms of our pools are smooth gravel and river rock, allowing the hot water to naturally bubble up from the ground. Both pools provide changing rooms, and the larger pool also has bathhouses with showers. (Please remember, our water is supplied by the hot spring, so showers may be hot!)
The campground is located along the Salmon River and is within walking distance of the pools and guesthouse. RV sites include water hook-ups, but there is also a small pump house near the entrance to the campground that provides cold drinking water for all of our campers.
You will find the office in the front room of the main house. This is where you check in for your reservations as well as where you register for Hot Springs memberships. There is seating available in the office as well as free wifi.
The area surrounding the property is rife with outdoor opportunities. We invite you to explore and enjoy it. Guests can access hundreds of miles of ATV trails directly from the property, and the campground has a boat access on the Salmon River to recover or launch watercraft. The Hot Springs staff can provide shuttle services depending on availability of staff members.
For a small fee, there is an old barn with a small turn-out corral for guests traveling with horses. Horse owners must provide their own hay and feed.
