The Lava Hot Springs Foundation has five different springs for you to choose from. Each range in temperature meaning whether traveling in the dead of winter or blistering summer vacationers will find a spring that works for them.

The water is always fresh and clean due to the strong current of the springs underground causing the water to drain into the Portneuf River.
