  • Very nice and clean place. Pools are very nice, water is clear and very well taken care of. They close the pools every night at 9PM which seems very early for guests. One of the workers was pretty grumpy about me playing fetch in the field with my dog. We were quiet minding out own business and he yelled at has across the field. $40 for electric and water hook up per night.
  • Challis Hot Springs camp ground and RV is simply a delightful place! The premises are immaculately maintained. The river running through is so peaceful and beautiful. The Manager and staff are very friendly, accommodating and go above and beyond to ensure your stay is as effortless as possible. The price is great too, as you consider the access to the pristine hot tubs available to guests while they stay. We cannot wait to go back!
  • Great pools to enjoy the hot spring water. They also have a river rock bottom which is delightful on the feet. It also backs up to the river and is near to some hikes. There is plenty of room for tents. If your nearby I’d recommend this for a developed hot spring.
  • Super beautiful glamping spot! Our tent site had great grass and was right on the Salmon River. It was secluded yet just a few hundred yards from the pools. Highly recommend
  • Friendly people, nice hot springs two pools one hot and one kid friendly... Salmon River runs on West side. Parking spots are nice with water and electric hook-ups.. dump station.. some sites are close to each other and awkward angles... But a nice overall campground.
