Come see what made Oregon Trail pioneers Milford and Mattie Givens trade their Oregon dreams for life in this beautiful high desert setting at the base of Idaho's Owyhee mountains. Located an hour from Boise, and just 1/2 hour from Nampa or Caldwell, Givens Hot Springs takes you away from the stresses of life as you soak or swim in this naturally soft, hot mineral water. Add to your swim a night or relaxing weekend in a tent under the stars, in your own RV, one of our camp trailers, or a quaint 1940's cabin and you won't want to leave!
The owner told me their family found this hot springs while they were on the Oregon trail! Loved this information. The owners are welcoming and the whole place feels friendly. I was able to rest well between two friendly trees. The pool is clean and healing.
This place has great potential, but just isn’t quite there. The indoor pool is great. It’s as warm as a bathtub, but still cool enough that you don’t overheat in 15 minutes. The facilities are VERY outdated, but still functional. The only water available comes from the hot spring, so you have to take cold water to mix it, or wait for it to cool before drinking. With some updates, this could be a high quality place.
