The Durfee Hot Springs is not a luxurious affair. And that's what's nice about it. The Durfees (descendants of area pioneers) will greet you personally from a folding table in the driveway, then usher you to the backyard, where three cement pools heated by a nearby spring beckon. The kiddie pool is a small 10 by 30 feet; the largest, a roomy 50 by 54 feet. Expect to see the biggun' packed with climbers on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights—the proximity to City of Rocks makes Durfee a huge draw for rockhounds. And the Durfees loving having them. For a couple of quarters, they'll even grab you an icy cold soda from the kitchen fridge. Now that's service.

  • Each of the three pools ripple at a different temperature. The largest is also the hottest, at about 106 degrees.
  • Keep your clothes on at Durfee—the place is billed as a family site, and this is conservative south Idaho.
  • There is an outdoor showerhead for dirty climbers who'd like to spray down.
