Also known as Milford Hot Springs, Wild Rose Hot Springs in the town of Carey are free, primitive hot springs set on private land. This natural hot spring pool is formed on a lava rock foundation and has two sections.
The thermal pool is set off the main road, and visitors can park on the side while swimming in the springs. There are two pools, with the top one being smaller and hotter. The lower pool is much larger and cooler, but it’s still warm enough to get in without a shock factor.
Hot water from the source up top cascades into the lower collection, which is big enough to fit several people at once. The water is entirely natural and hovers around an average of 100℉.
These pools are on private land, but the public has free access to them. It’s essential that soakers treat the area respectfully and always take their trash home with them. While clothing-optional soaks might be possible, the road is very close to the pool, and it might be better to wear swimming attire.
Address: From Carey, Idaho take the US-26 W for about 10 miles. The hot springs will be on the left side.
