  • As most people know hot springs can range from rustic to little more than glorified swimming pools. Gold Fork is a very well done establishment. The soaking pools are tiered starting at about 108°F do...  read more »
  • My wife and I were taken here by a friend who had been any times before. It was a weekday at the end of September so it wasn't crowded. The curator, Glen(n), was a font of information and kept an eye ...  read more »
  • I love natural hot springs. There are few things as relaxing as lazing about in hot water – rain or shine. I recently took a day trip to Gold Fork with some of my family members. As we soaked in the h...  read more »
  • Great springs ranging from really hot to warm. The road's a bit rough to get there, but scenic along the way. Tip: go during the week to avoid large crowds.
  • Large and spacious pools. They are cascaded from very hot pools down to cooler pools. The set up is nice. It costs (at the time of his writing) $8 to enter, but you can stay as long as you like. It is quite a drive up the mountain, but very peaceful once you're there.
  • The dirt road to the springs was very rough. Upon arriving I found a lack of parking spaces, and the pools themselves were very crowded. Admission to the pools was expensive, but you can stay all day after paying admission. The springs also were not natural, they were simply concrete and tile pools filled but a spicket coming out of a rock.
  • I absolutely love this place. The road in is perfect.....keeping in mind that it's in the hills and not paved-perfect. The changing rooms are small- much larger than the car and they are warm :-). My kids always enjoy the snacks for sale for the ride back home. The staff has always been warm and open to sharing their little piece of paradise. Great place to take kids!!!!
  • Nice place with multiple pools that have a range of heat. Great place to relax and soak if it's not too busy.
