Lava Hot Springs is a community rich in western history, a wealth of natural resources and various summer and winter activities. Long before the Western people discovered the natural odor-free hot mineral waters, the proud Native American nations of the Bannock-Shoshone tribes gathered here to bathe, rest and worship. They set the area aside as a neutral ground to be shared in peace by all tribes.
