Frenchman’s Bend Hot Springs are a series of lovely hot pools directly alongside Warm Springs Creek. They are located about 11 miles southwest of Ketchum, off Warm Springs Road. During the winter months this dirt road is snow covered, but usually still drivable.

There are several rock walled pools alongside the creek where you can soak. The source temperature of the springs is reportedly near 140 degrees, but the hot water mixes with the cold stream water to make for comfortable soaking. One thing to note is that during the Spring months the pools may be unusable due to high water levels in the creek.

At the parking area there is a sign with the rules for this area. Nudity isn’t allowed, nor is alcohol or dogs. Please be respectful of the rules and enjoy the hot springs.
