Kirkham Hot Spring - Lowman Idaho

Kirkham Hot Spring is located just outside of Lowman, ID on the scenic South Fork of the Payette River. The pools and waterfalls are visible from Highway 21. There is a campground at the spring that is usually packed. Expect to be sharing your soak!

The campground does have picnic tables and pit toilets. It opens officially on May 20th and has a camp host on site, so behave yourselves! There is a small camping fee and a $5 parking fee during peak seasons.

This is a high visibility soak and swimsuits are required. If you aren't looking to get into the pools or stand under one of the many hot waterfalls cascading down the hillside there is also a short interpretive trail about the eco-system.
Please be respectful of the area and pack out any trash that you find. Leave the springs looking better than when you arrived to ensure their beauty for the next visitors.
