Located just 16 miles south of Twin Falls, ID, the Nat Soo Pah Hot Springs is a geothermal resort with camping, soaking, swimming, and picnicking options for all ages. A hot springs waterslide, soaking pool, and hot tub are just some of the features that make this resort ideal for families.
The name, Nat-Soo-Pah, literally means “Magic Mineral Water” in English. The ancient Shoshone people, who used to reside in the neighboring foothills, would come here to take a refreshing dip in the spring. Nowadays, it is an excellent place for outdoor recreation and fun in the sun. This seasonal facility is only open from Memorial Day to Labor Day, so plan visits accordingly.
Natural Hot Springs Pools
There are three developed hot and warm pools on the property. Admission is charged per person based on age.
The high desert of Nat-Soo-Pah is home to a big swimming pool measuring 125 feet by 50 feet, warmed by geothermal water seeping to the surface. This mineral-rich water ranges in temperature from 92 to 99℉. A large slide and two smaller diving boards are also by the pool and are a favorite feature of teens and kids.
Adults and weary swimmers alike will appreciate the proximity of the hot tub and hot soak pool to the main pool. The average temperature of a dip in the Hot Springs Hot Tub is about 100℉., while the water in the Hot Soak Pool is always a toasty 104 to 106℉.
Remember to bring a swimsuit; the pools are chlorinated and not clothing-optional.
There are 75 campsites on the property, with 29 full hookups. In addition to bathrooms, lockers, all-natural spring showers, and a snack shop, they also have a dumping area for trash.
The tent areas are on nice grassy patches of land, featuring pavilions and picnic spots. After a soak in the hot springs, play a game of horseshoes right on-site, or strike up some flames for a BBQ on a fire pit.
Admission to the pool area is not included with a night’s stay, and pets are welcome at the campground.
Visitors who opt to stay multiple days can take advantage of the short drive to Twin Falls for other attractions and activities or see the well-known border town of Jackpot, NV.
