Wild Rose Hot Springs – Idaho
As one of the more scenic primitive hot springs in Idaho, Wild Rose offers the ultimate day of relaxation for people visiting Carney. Although it’s on private property, it’s completely free to the public and draws thousands of people each year for a nice relaxing soak.
The attraction within Craters of the Moon National Monument & Preserve is also known as Milford Hot Springs and is basically a large rocked off pool that catches the geothermal waters. You can expect the temperate to be roughly 100 degrees year round. There is algae within the spring, but it’s all natural mineral waters. Unlike most hot springs, there is no odor that comes off at wild rose.
