There are so many outdoor activities to do in Chico. Whether you want to enjoy a dip in the hot spring heated pool, take a horseback ride, go fly fishing, take a hike, or shoot some clays, there is a lot to do. However, because this was a work trip I did not book my activities before arrival and missed... More

I drove from Big Sky, ID and passed Bozeman, Livingston for my Yellowstone trip at the North entrance. Aim for the hot spring pool. The water and the mountain background are amazing but using the pool isn't pleasurable. I have to ask the lady bartender several times to get in the pool. And she seems unhappy at the moment maybe...

Our stay was much too short but thoroughly enjoyable. Arrived Sunday evening to meet friends and relatives. We had a 1-bedroom suite in the lower lodge room 410 (the newest facility) so hosted everyone for wine, beer and snacks at our outdoor table alcove off the front walkway. Our suite was spacious with sitting room/kitchen area, large bathroom with many... More

I hate to say it but Chico Hot Springs fell short. The water was luke warm and DIRTY! Lots of people in pool and had to wonder if they ever cleaned it or just how sanitized the water was. I wouldn't expect chemical cleaners but I also wouldn't expect the water to be hot enough to kill germs. We couldn't... More

I took the 1 hour horseback ride & it was awesome. Christy was my wrangler and she was great. The horse she picked for me was name Blade & he was a sweetheart. The ride was perfect. I have only rode a few times but this was the best. Christy was so informative about the land & the horses. She... More

We did the half day (3 hours) horse back ride through the mountains and trails. Our guides were very nice. 3 out of the 4 of us were inexperienced riders, and the horses were very gentle. The view from the top of our ride was gorgeous! The three hours were enough for us, but I know some people prefer to... More

This spot was chosen for a family reunion. The hot springs pool is great. Obviously very hot. The food in the poolside grill is pretty reasonably priced and not too bad tasting. The grounds are beautifully kept. We stayed in the fisherman's lodge and it was great. Pretty spacious for a basic room, and the beds were fairly comfortable. I... More

We enjoyed spending time in Chico Hot Springs which offers two different hot pools. They fill the pools with spring water and you can really feel the benefits. I wish I could have spent more time there. It was a real treat.

The water was 99 degrees in one pool and 106 in the small pool. It was very relaxing but a little too warm for the temp outside. Not really anywhere to cool off. It was a good experience though. Then we drove our 4x4 into the small town behind the hot springs and enjoyed watching the creek alongside the road.
