The Lava Hot Springs property is a 970± acre ranch split into 2 parcels: 650± acres and 320± acres, divided by state ground. Beautiful views extend across the valley and it is seemingly endless with pastures and lush vegetation with grasses, sagebrush, bitterbrush, and native plants. There are open areas as well as groves of aspens, pines, and spruce. Lava is located on the east side of Baldy Mountain and only 3 miles south of the Lava Hot Springs Recreation Area. It offers a great value for this size of the property, with diverse habitats and productive grazing land. The Caribou – Targhee National Forest covers thousands of acres and offers plenty of access trails for outdoor entertainment. It is a valuable, private sportsman’s paradise!

Lava offers a convenient getaway, only 30 minutes south of Pocatello, Idaho, and 2 hours north of Salt Lake City, Utah. Access is from the Dempsy Creek private gate and Baldy Mountain Road. It is close to Lava and Soda Springs. The region’s economic base consists mainly of farming, ranching, and the many outdoor activities that draw people to the area. The towns are named for the thousands of springs in and around the area which were very well known to the native tribes that inhabited the region. There are also scenic historic landmarks along the Oregon Trail. The vibrant small-town atmosphere thrives on the outdoor activities found on the surrounding rivers and mountains.
