Basin Creek Hot Springs


Basin Creek Campground is just around the bend from this hot spring north of Stanley. You'll turn on a dirt road to the left and go a couple hundred yards (road is probably impassable in the winter).

Personal Notes

Didn't make the trek down the side of the hill for this one, as it looked just 'meh'.


Basin Creek Hot Springs is located 8.2 Miles from the 'T' in Stanley, ID. Turn at the T and head North towards Challis. After 8 or so miles, keep an eye out for a turn out dirt road to the left. If you hit a very large turn out on the right you've gone too far and are at Cove Creek Hot Spring. On the dirt road, the hot spring is down the side of the hill on the left a few hundred feet up.
