Idaho Hot Springs

Zims Hot Springs - New Meadows, Idaho

Zims Hot Springs features outdoor pools sourced from natural mineral water fed by an artesian well cooled by the waters of the Little Salmon River. Only located a few miles outside of New Meadows, ID, the springs are perfectly located in the spectacularly scenic Meadows Valley. The Nez Perce Tribe is proud to announce the purchase and continued operation of the hot springs, and also the significant spiritual, cultural, and medicinal values we hold for the site and valley.
