For an experience like no other, renew, refresh and relax anytime of the year at Idaho’s most wonderful and unique recreational oasis! Lava Hot Springs is an all seasons resort located just eleven miles east of I-15 on U.S. Highway 30. 

The Olympic Swimming Complex is the only facility of it’s kind in the Intermountain West. Two heated swimming pools cover nearly one-third acre of swimming space.
The free-form Olympic size pool has 50 meter racing lanes and a dizzying 10 meter diving tower overlooking 17 feet of clear, warm water. The second pool is an AAU size 25 yard pool. Four water slides and a splash pool heighten your fun, one is a half-tube, the other is full tube.

Lava’s year round favorite is our World Famous Hot Springs.  Bubbling up from an ancient volcano, 2 1/2 million gallons of hot springs water swirls through our pools daily. Our odor free naturally filtered waters are ever-changing with no chlorine or sulfur. Our Hot Springs Complex features four outdoor pools at three different temperatures varying from 104° to 112° for personal enjoyment. There are also several hotels with hot pools in Lava. See our Hot Pool Tour.

We have an ideal setting for family reunions and company picnics. Well maintained gardens and shelters with grills are available with 17 additional acres of parks in Lava.

Jump in the river and go on a wild tube ride!  Enjoy shopping and dining, then stay in one of our 200 Lodging rooms or 400 Camp Sites. Everywhere is a relaxing atmosphere to help you soak up water, sun and the mountain air. Golf, fishing, biking, snowmobiling and skiing are all available in or near Lava.

Since the town has a lot of history, naturally there is a museum on Main Street.  Here you will find items and old pictures showing a very different town years ago.  Come and see how the town has grown from a sage covered hill to the beautiful resort that it is today.
