Miracle Hot Springs, Idaho
Miracle Hot Springs sits in a little nook adjacent the Snake River in Idaho’s gorgeous Magic Valley, so named for the brilliant waterfalls and abundance of geothermal springs that line the canyon walls. You won’t be disappointed by the sights you see driving along the highway to your destination, especially during the spring when snowmelt is abundant.
Upon arrival, you’ll note that Miracle Hot Springs has four large outdoor pools, all kept at different temperatures so you can choose what’s best for your perfect soak. They also have a number of private and VIP spas rentable by the hour; be rest assured all are very clean and reasonably priced. Miracle is a local go-to for the overworked and tired, and each Idaho hot spring has its own unique mineral profile; Miracle’s is well known for easing sore muscles.
The best part is that you can rent a geodesic dome, which is basically a yurt on steroids (and just as comfortable as a hotel room!) for less than $100 per night. There are also RV spots for $20 and tent sites for $10 a night. Don’t think enjoying the hot springs will be your only activity here: there are several hiking trails in The Magic Valley, as well as several Snake River swimming holes. You can head on over to Hagerman to peruse their famous fossil beds, or drive a few miles up to Buhl to grab a scoop of Cloverleaf Creamery’s ice cream, crafted with milk from the happiest cows in the Northwest. Added bonus: Miracle Hot Springs has its own alligator, living happily and comfortably onsite (behind a tall fence, of course!)
