Hot Springs

One of my favorite natural features here in Northern Utah and up into Southern Idaho are the naturally occurring hot springs.  Many of these springs have been developed into popular attractions complete with showers, hotel rooms, and other options.  My favorite time to go is in the winter or early spring when there is snow on the ground

The closest hot springs to my house is Riverdale, just North of Preston, ID.  My favorite hot springs is called Maple Grove and they are located up by Thatcher, ID.  To find a listing of Idaho hot springs please visit this site.  Their listing of Idaho hot springs closest to Cache Valley can be found here.

In Utah the nearest hot springs would be Crystal Hot Springs over in Honeyville.  For a large list of Utah hot springs and their coordinates, visit this site.  That site doesn't differentiate between developed hot springs and natural hot springs.  One thing to keep in mind when visiting the natural hot springs is that many people who frequent this springs consider them clothing optional.  If you don't want to be surprised I suggest you stick with the developed hot springs resorts.

Here in Cache Valley the Pain Management Support Group (Soakers Club) meets every Wednesday night at 7:15p.m. and Sundays at 2p.m. in the parking lot of Square One Printing (630 W 200 North, Logan) to car pool over to Crystal Hot Springs for a few hours of soaking in the warm mineral pools. This is a great way to help alleviate pain and promote optimal health. For more information and to RSVP your space in a car pool call Beverly (435-755-3206).
