Established in 1881
Celebrating our 140th year in business!!!
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 your own RV or a tent under the stars.
We will be closed Thanksgiving Day
December 24th & 25th
We're open all other days of the year, including
New Year's Day.

"A great place to enjoy nature and the healing waters of the hot springs... Friendly people, great for camping and winding down..." May 2021 - BN
"I love this place.. the swimming pool is great but the personal soaker tubs are my go-to after a long week of work. It's affordable, not too far of a drive, and the employees are great. Thank you for keeping this place alive and moving forward, I've been a visitor for almost 20 years and just can't get enough!!"

"I’ve been coming here since I was a little girl! It’s fun to take my kids to a family-friendly pool that’s laid back and quaint the same way it was 30 years ago. The owners are so friendly too!"

"We love this place!!! we try to go at least every other week with the kids and honestly I love the fact that it's not super fancy. I know my kids are safe playing in the water and I don't feel like I have to get all fancy to go to the pool!!! I also love the individual baths.
I have a skin condition and the waters help out so much! Also, the people that work there are always amazing! They treat you like family!
"Thank you to Guy and everyone else out there we really do appreciate all that you do!" May 2021 - LW
"What this place lacks in fancy amenities it makes up for in charm and customer service. I brought a large group here, nervous how a large group would be handled and it was no issue. The place was mostly empty. We were warmly welcomed and taken care of. Water was clean and the perfect temp. We will definitely be taking our group here again in the future." July 2021 -BB
"It is true that Givens Hot Springs has been around for many years. We found the pool clean and not crowded. The water was crystal clear and was approximately 98 -99 degrees. Evidently, the water is totally exchanged every 48 hours. When I reported to Atsede at the pool desk that the ladies restroom had been left in poor condition by an inconsiderate camper, Atsede immediately spent time cleaning, supplying and restoring the public bathroom to the condition that the owners of Givens desired. Thank you Atsede!"

"I'm giving Givens Hot Springs a five star rating not because it's a posh resort. There are improvements that could be made. However - it is a first-rate place to visit with your family. The hot springs pool is delightful, and they do WHATEVER they can to make your visit enjoyable (including keeping a supply of kids bathing suits on hand for when Grandma forgets!).
This is an historical site, and as such definitely projects an old-time vibe. The water is crystal clear, there is a small playground and open area outside (and a campground if you're interested), it is SUPER affordable, and the three times we went, during the day, it was not crowded at all."
