Riverdale Resort Hot Springs – Idaho
As one of the premiere destinations for people of all ages, Bear River Hot Springs (formerly known as Riverdale) is the perfect place to go for the day and enjoy Idaho’s natural mineral waters as you travel down their famous waterslide. Situated in Franklin County, there are four main pools and two different waterslides for you to enjoy. This place has to be on your bucket list if you want a day of fun, while also soaking in the natural healing waters.
Bear River Hot Springs pools range in temperatures of 90 degrees (therapy hot springs) and 104 degrees (hot tub hot springs). Due the amount of traffic, they do drain the pools weekly and clean them. If you have a dog, there is even a dog park for them to play as well while you and your family enjoy a day of fun. There is so much to do at this resort you may just decide to stay a few days.
Speaking of staying, Riverdale / Bear River Hot Springs offers both a hotel for lodging, cabins for rent, as well as a section for RV parking. Unfortunately there isn’t any tent camping so you’ll have to stay at their hotel if you don’t have an RV. The hot springs are free to use if you plan on staying at the resort as an added bonus.
