Seasonal Notes
Fording the river is only advised during low water (late season) conditions, usually late July to November. Majority of roads into Atlanta close during winter save for one route which is sketchy at best most winters especially given the large amount of deaths that occur on this road during the summer months.

Camping Notes
Plenty of nearby National Forest campgrounds and primitive sites to choose from.

Trip Reports

A cold day meant that I wasn't fording the river. From my vantage point I could see some small, shallow soakers along the river's edge, just below the source. Looks pretty sweet, but the access window is small unless you like icy cold, late season river fords.

We just got to look at the steamy mound across the river because of how high the water was. Apparently, the only time that you'll see a pool is in the late season because of the river level. Ninemeyer is located right next to a campground of the same name, and is also located near a bunch of other hot springs and campsites along the Middle Fork Boise River Road.

No Soap, Shampoo or BIO-Soap/Shampoo Allowed in Hot Springs! Avoid Being Fined!

Public hot springs are not bathing facilities and do not have 'plumbing' like that of commercial, improved hot springs. Soap and shampoo (including biodegradable soap and shampoo) do not completely breakdown naturally. This pollutes our water systems (ingested by fish, animals, humans) at or near the source. This is also illegal in most wilderness and public lands areas.
