One of the favorite pastimes of McCall residents is to soak in the area’s many natural hot springs. From unnamed rock pools along local rivers to resort-like facilities, there are dozens of hot spots near Blackhawk on the River to refresh your mind and soothe your body.
Gold Fork Hot Springs
Located just a few miles southwest of nearby Donnelly, Gold Fork Hot Springs offers beautifully landscaped pools with heated walkways and wood decks. The geothermal water enters an upper cistern at 120 degrees F and is channeled to a series of lower pools, each with different temperatures, some with waterfalls, and all with superb views. There is also a shallow wading pool with a white sand beach for kids.
Zims Hot Springs
Located 15 miles north of McCall on Highway 55, Zims has a warm, Olympic-size swimming pool and a smaller soaking pool consistently maintained at 105 degrees. There is also a lodge, recreation hall and changing booths.
Burgdorf Hot Springs
Located 36 miles north of McCall on the Warren Wagon Road, Burgdorf is the area’s oldest resort hot springs. In 1865, a German immigrant named Fred Burgdorf bought the springs and developed a 20-room hotel and cabins modeled on German spas. He ran it for nearly 60 years. Now, its a wonderful soaking spot with some great historical buildings. It is accessible by car in the summer, and by snowmobile in the winter.
