Lava Hot Springs is located in the mountainous valley of the Portneuf River. The city is a popular resort location, noted for its numerous hot springs soaking pools. Bubbling out of natural underground springs, the Lava Hot Springs are laden with minerals and odorless, promising a relaxing, healthy soak. If wild is more your style, take a thrilling inner tube run on the Portneuf River, which is fed by the local hot springs.
