Heated, Olympic sized 50 meter swimming pool with ten, seven and five meter diving platforms as well as three and one meter spring boards. Curly slides for the ride of your life or the new speed slides shoot you down at over 35 miles per hour. Lots of grass space for picnicking or you can purchase food at the on-site grill. Outdoor pool is open the summer months only. the Indoor Aquatic Center is open all year with a poolside climbing wall, springboards and basketball hoops. Heated floors throughout the dressing rooms provide warmth and comfort for all swimmers. Coming in winter of 2013 is an indoor kiddie play area with all the fun a zero depth splash and play area can provide. Year round fun coupled with access to the World Famous Hot Pools make this a must see and do destination.

For this visit we spent our time at the Portneuf Kiddie Cove. This is great place to take young children. The water is warm and the pool is not very deep. There is a hot pool near-by that is available during this time as well. The changing rooms are clean with nice heated floors. There are also separate changing rooms... More

The Swimming Complex is a great way to spend a hot day. The complex offers something for all swimming abilities. This is a great place for a group get together, family reunion or just a relaxing day in the sun. The facility does get crowded mid summer weekends and on July 4th and 24th weekends. Come early and set up... More

This place is great if you really love to swim! Great for adults and children. The water is warm and prices are totally fair. No automated rides, but a really good selection of water slides. The diving tower is pretty amazing but not for the faint of heart. Lots to do, climbing walls and indoor pools if it is cold... More

We have taken all of our extended family here several times. This is not the Hot Springs facility. The Hot Springs facility is about 1/2 a mile east on the main road through the small town. The swimming complex has several water slides, several diving boards and I believe it is 3 diving platforms. You need to sign a release... More

Our family has a reunion in the Lava area every other year. We always bring a pack of kids to the pool one afternoon. Plenty to do - water slides, diving boards, picnic areas.... Fun for all. Nice locker rooms too! Also adults only areas a certain times of the day for exercise swimmers - check the schedules online. And... More

Lots of fun for all in our group. Something to do for most ages. Bring your own shade and chairs. Outside food is allowed. Lifeguards were well trained and took their responsibilities seriously. Pricing is family friendly as well.

The pool and slides are fun but they really need to fix the showers. The water pressure out of the showers is literally like a pressure washer. It is either on or off. These showers will rip your skin off. My wife got bruises from the water pressure. I mentioned it to the people up front. Hopefully they take care... More

The $10/per person cost includes both this collection of pools (huge outside; oversize inside, wonderful multi-station toddler's area, long slides for teens and even three levels of diving stations, plus a 10(?) person hot tub without jets) plus "Idaho's World Famous Hot Pots." Lifeguards seemed to rotate every hour, so they could stay fresh and focused. This place isn't far... More

We stopped off here during a road trip to just air out the kids and do something fun. They have several waterslides and high dives (different levels). It was busy the day we went (Sunday). It was a little pricey on Sunday but during the week it's much cheaper. They have lockers you can rent for a quarter and you... More
