Kirkham Road Professional Review and Guide
"Includes: Red Mountain Loop and Bonneville Hot Springs. Hot waterfalls and pools below a highway campground on the South Fork Payette River. Swimwear a must. In plain view below the highway, these popular pools are frequently filled with boisterous teenagers and large family groups. The rock-and-sand pools, interspersed with steaming showers from the 149-degree F springs, come in all sizes, shapes, and temperatures. Kids of all ages love to leap off the rocks into deep holes in the river, and older folks lie scattered about on boulders dozing in the sun. The adjacent campground adds to the congestion here; it’s usually Winnebago City on summer weekends. It’s worth it to try early mornings or the off-season months."
