We are excited to announce that Banbury Hot Springs is now under new ownership! Bob Jensen, Kenneth Webb, and Bill Ehrstrom have recently purchase Banbury from long time owners Herb and Zippy Deuel. The new owners appreciate the beauty of this unique property with Snake River frontage and both hot and cold water. The resort features large swimming pool and hot tubs with healing mineral water, RV park, camping, and picnic areas. The river access provides a boat dock and launching area. Thousand Springs Boat Tours operate from Banbury's dock. The secluded park-like atmosphere with large, mature trees, and off-the-road quiet, peaceful river views make this a desirable destination resort. Banbury Hot Springs will be open 7 days a week and year round.

Sadly, Banburys has not been well maintained with new owners. The pool is cracking and dirty. The stairs to the pool from the women's locker room are disintegrating and dangerous. The water is kept way too warm, and there is algae growing in the gutters...More
