Pools

The natural mineral springs at the Challis Hot Springs are fed from an underground geothermal source. The water bubbles up through our two gravel-bottom pools at nearly 3 cubic feet per second. The gravel bottoms allow for the mineral springs to continually fill, providing a constant circulation of fresh water. This constant flow provides a healthier environment for our guests as the need for chemical treatments is minimal.

Due to Idaho state regulations, Challis Hot Springs Inc. cannot operate as a public swimming pool. Swimming is available for adults over the age of 18 when they register as a member at Challis Hot Springs Inc.

Memberships include:

•  Day-use passes are available for adults (18 years old and older) for $10/day.

 We also offer monthly memberships for adults (18 years old and older). Passes for individuals are $50/month and Couples Passes are available for $75/month. Single and couple members may bring guests over the age of 18 for an additional swim fee.

•  Unlimited use of the pools is available to registered guests of the Campground and Bed & Breakfast. Children (under 18) of guests of the Campground and Bed & Breakfast are welcome to swim so long as they are supervised by an adult at all times.
