Warren Wagon Road is the main road that leads to Burgdorf. During the winter, the road transitions into a snowmobile trail. Snowmobile rentals are provided by a company called Cheap Thrills in McCall. The fact that the springs are only accessible by snowmobile during this time of year makes the visit even more special.
You won't regret making the extra effort to visit this beautiful hot springs. The resort contains a large swimming pool which maintains a steamy temperature of 100 degrees.
Two smaller pools keep a temperature of 113 degrees. All of the pools are fed by natural hot spring water at a consistent rate of 150 gallons per minute.
Soaking in these luxurious springs is the perfect winter time activity. It's places like this that remind us of just how lucky we are to live in a state with an abundance of beautiful, hidden hot springs like this one.
Daily swim rates are only $10 per person and $5 for anyone under the age of 17. Towel and swimsuit rentals are available on-site for a small fee. Day guests are welcome to the pools from 10:00 am to 8:00 pm on weekends and 10:00 am to 6:00 pm on weekdays.
Burgdorf also doubles as an overnight resort if you find you simply can't pull yourself away from this place. This place is even more dreamy at night, when the sky offers the clearest view of the stars above.
They offer 15 rustic cabins that come equipped with wood stoves, firewood, beds and basic furnishings. If you plan to stay overnight, they advise to be prepared to "camp inside the cabin" since the cabins do not contain running water or electricity. It is up guests to bring their own bedding and supplies. The biggest perk of staying overnight is getting unlimited access to the pools. Night time soak, anyone?
