About

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!

Camp was closed to camping but open for springs

GPS was wrong. I ended up on the wrong side of the river. Google was looking for a school. Finally found the location by moving the map around. It looked worn out and they where not open for camping. Saved me some money

Nice enough

Stopped in last minute, as usual. Really grateful to stay here. It’s by the road, it’s super outdated walking around the property there is trash everywhere it’s definitely Past its heyday it be great if someone could pump some money into this and a little bit of TLC. I dry camp it was 10 bucks and they have a really good Wi-Fi! I was here on the weekend it was crowded and I did not feel comfortable indoors during a pandemic.

Quiet and relaxing

Had a great stay at givens, it was not very busy and made for a great quiet campsite. We also enjoyed swimming in the hot spring. Everyone was super friendly too. We will be back in the future !

Neat place to stay

Great stop midway between Boise and Salt Lake. Campgrounds were really comfortable (and green). The springs/pool was surprisingly refreshing even tho 94 degrees on a hot day in July. Fun place, little historical landmark describing the Givens' trek westward on a covered wagon. If you are fussy about clean bathrooms, however, this may not he the place for you.

Fyi the pool/campground does not open until noon- can call ahead on their site for reservation. Pool open until 9- extra charge to swim if more than two campers. Well worth it :)

Perfect choice!

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.

Has potential

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.
