The Incredible Spring-Fed Pool In Idaho You Absolutely Need To Visit

Idaho is home to a number of unexpected treasures: secret canyons that appear and disappear just as suddenly, lost rivers, and even alpine lakes that no human soul has ever seen up close. Is it really any surprise that Idaho would also be home to multiple natural spring pools, tucked away in a hidden desert oasis?

While the most famous of Idaho’s spring-fed pools are of the hot, steamy, thermal type, others are refreshing and perfect for warm weather dips. But only one place in Idaho is home to a jewel-toned spring that is truly remarkable: Box Canyon Springs State Park in the Magic Valley, a part of the Thousands Springs State Park complex.

And it. Is. Breathtaking.

What a perfectly idyllic hidden swimming hole! Where’s your favorite place to explore in Thousand Springs?
