Great potential!

The pools are clean and at a nice temperature, but much of the facilities, including the pools is in need of repairs and updating.

We were greeted with sub-par customer service. The water was nice and warm but there is no atmosphere; you are just in an old swimming pool that is warm. Some of the pool walls are slimy

My family and I lived here for a couple months and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Lots of room to roam for our boys and dogs. There is even access to the creek below the RV spots. Very laid back kind of setting. I felt it wasn't strict at all. Dogs didn't have to be on a leash as long as... More

Stopped by with my family to check it out... The man behind the desk was less then helpful... I asked if I could check out the springs and revived a rude short "NO. You can look through the window." I peeked through the window although I don't know why...I would not support a place with such a rude person taking... More

It was a little crowded but the hot side of the pool was spacious and didn't have too many people in it. Definitely worth it after a long hike at Goose Creek Falls.

We had been driving all day and needed a place to camp. We saw the sign and pulled in to a pleasant surprise. Zims offers a good soak. However, the facilities are tired and have not been updated in years. The campground has covered tables, but the tables a rickety and need some work. The water is nice and hot... More

We stopped here unexpectedly when our trip was taking longer than expected. While the place was quite rustic and the pool was not very clean, the hot springs were well worth those facts.

As previous reviews have noted, the owner/operator is not a 'charmer', but he sure does a great job of maintaining an excellent facility! I would recommend Zims for anyone or family looking for a clean, well run, relaxing soak for a small price ($7.50/body).

The campground has no trees and thousands of holes from rodents. There are covered shelters to eat under. The valley is beautiful! The campground is surrounded by mountains and meadows. The pools are ok. The smaller one is the hottest. The deep end of the big pool is kinda dark looking and not sure if it is algae or the... More

I have been to several hot springs! This one is semi rustic! There is 2 pools! One is hot the other is a swim pool in the 90's! Wish they had a deeper hot pool with benches but it was ok. It has been family owned since the 70's. The family member I spoke to had a great since of... More
