BLM bans night-time use of Skinny Dipper Hot Springs on public-safety grounds

The U.S. Bureau of Land Management has ordered Skinny Dipper Hot Springs in Boise County closed to all recreational use from sunset to sunrise, allowing only daytime use of the hot springs along the Banks-Lowman Highway along with the parking lot and access trail. "The closure will help provide for public safety," the agency said in a news release. "Since 2004, there have been several fatalities, assaults and numerous injuries associated with night-time use of the area."
