The Mountain Village Resort Natural Hot Springs in Stanley Idaho
The Mountain Village Resort
in Stanley, Idaho features one deep
pool with a sandy bottom and temps between 103 and 106. Hot and cold
water is piped in from a nearby creek and hot springs
source. Addition hot water enters through the bottom of the pool. The
soak shack features two
changing rooms that are in the same structure that covers the pool.
The real treat is that the side of the shack opens up to reveal
an outstanding view of the Sawtooth Mountains.
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.
