Buhl sits in the western half of Twin Falls County, known as the Trout Capital of the World. At the nearby Hagerman Wildlife Management Area, there are multiple ponds to fish for rainbow trout, bluegill and bass. In addition to the sublime local fishing, the Hagerman Fossil Beds National Monument offers a look back in time, as the monument is home to the world’s richest fossil deposits from the Pliocene epoch, about 3.5 million years ago!
The local plant life is rich and varied, with many varieties of both evergreen and deciduous trees comprising the backdrop of your outdoor vacation. Many hyssops, columbine, asters and coral bells blanket the terrain, with flowers blooming in colorful tapestries during the spring and summer seasons.
Buhl is situated in the Snake River Plain, in what is known as a moisture channel that extends from the Pacific Ocean to Yellowstone National Park. This moisture channel brings precipitation from the ocean all the way to the head of Snake River Valley where it falls as rain or snow. Less rugged than surrounding ecoregions, the Snake River Plain is characterized by rolling hills and open fields, and is considered to be a semi-arid climate. This open landscape allows for excellent views while hiking around Balanced Rock Park and other nearby landmarks.
With summer upon us, there’s no better time to enjoy a beautiful stay in the great outdoors. Get your glamp on and make lasting memories at Miracle Hot Springs in a beautiful hot springs dome.
