Welcome to Burgdorf Hot Springs

Hello and Welcome!

Burgdorf Hot Springs is a rustic, historic resort nestled in the mountains of the Payette National Forest in central Idaho, 32 miles north of McCall. Presently, the use of the hot springs is available to cabin guests (24-hour access). Additionally, we are scheduling day swims to outside guests by prior reservation only. If interested in day use please visit Soak to schedule your two-hour swim block now. During the Summer (June-October) we can be accessed by car via Warren Wagon Road however in the Winter (December-April), access is available by snowmobiles only. Please visit our Prepare page for a list of local snowmobile rentals. We are closed for short periods in late Fall (November) and early Spring (May) due to limited access. We look forward to seeing you!

Please read our updated COVID policy

For further information, please see our FAQ page.


There are three historic log sided pools with graveled bottoms. The two small pools at the source of the spring are 113°F, while the larger pool averages 96-113°F, depending on the season. A partitioned shallow pool has been built for the little ones, though children must be accompanied and supervised by parents at all times. Please check with your physician if you have medical conditions for advice as to whether or not it is safe for you to immerse in hot water.


Burgdorf offers rustic cabins by reservation. They are all special and boast their own unique history. All cabins are without running water and electricity, so please be prepared to “camp inside a cabin”. Renewable lighting is furnished. The smaller cabins have either a double or a queen bed and sleep 2 people while the largest cabins sleep up to 6 people.



Our cabins at Burgdorf are simple and rustic. Remember they are sparsely furnished log cabins, so you need to come prepared.  The cabins do not have electricity or water.  Outhouses are close by and firewood is on the porch.

Winter is knocking at our door!

We woke up this morning to the town covered in a light dusting. It snowed the majority of the day yesterday--and froze and stuck over night. Sunshine and snow are the perfect combination for a magical Burgdorf experience. Come see us this winter!
