Sharkey Hot Springs

This site is a popular destination for soaking, biking, picnicking and scenic viewing. It includes two soaking pools, restrooms, changing rooms, picnic tables, a large group fire ring and a parking area. The site is named for B.F. Sharkey, an early settler of Lemhi County. The springs were originally developed around 1890 and attracted people from the Lemhi Valley and Salmon River area.

With your help BLM can continue to make Sharkey Hot Springs an amazing place to visit. Funds go towards cleaning and upkeep of all facilities.
