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.

After a long day of kayaking the Snake River, we decided to camp at Banbury Hot Springs and enjoy the hot pools, great campsites and beautiful views. The campsite are lush, green grass canopied by tall cottonwood trees. The hot pools are adjacent to the Snake River and there are two waterfalls visible from the property. The hot pools offer...

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 and floating in the pool. While this was once a pristine gem, it's now so... More

On a motorcycle trip, one night in a cabin at Banbury Hot Springs. Large hot spring pool, emptied and cleaned nightly, hot tubs. Facilities under the trees for RV's and a good camping area for tents or just sleeping in a sleeping bag. Great owners, friendly and helpful, exceptional employees.

Nestled by the Snake River this campground / rv park is clean, conveniently located to other attractions in the area. Camping by tent, or RV there are also small tiny houses you can rent. The mineral pool is a DAILY charge and the private tubs are extra on top of that. The staff are courteous but stand offish but the... More

We paid a fair bit of money to visit this place. The walls and sides of the pool are cracking and falling apart. The water had hot a cold spots, even though there was a sign at the beginning stating 'no lifeguards' there were plenty walking around... only occasionally "watching". Pretty sure I'll never go back. There are better options... More

Okay so this is located near Buhl, ID. I'm not sure what to say about Buhl. I don't think people actually go to Buhl on purpose-- but maybe they drive down along the river to see the waterfalls. My wife and kids got a little afraid driving towards our chosen campsite at Banbury because along the road there are shanties... More

My family loves this place! We come here to camp and swim every summer. They also have brand new kayaks for rent that you can take on the snake river.

Just spent a nice weekend at Banbury Hot Springs. This was our first trip there and we were pleased. We were looking for a place to get away for the weekend but due to my job requirements I had to be in cell phone range. We have a fifth wheel trailer and usually prefer to go to more rustic settings,... More
