  • Went here with my son and had a blast. It was 5° outside! It's about a half mile walk to get there. There is no changing facilities so u need to wear what your going to swim in. The boiling river is where a hot spring meets the river. It's like torture in a fun way, you hit spots that are freezing cold and then spots that are super hot! You have to find a spot where it blends perfectly and the water feels great. Highly recommend visiting!
  • A must stop, attraction! Especially in the winter months when, there is plenty of amazing wildlife and views to take in!
