Idaho has many, many, many hot springs, the number is almost mind boggling, and some are more known and easier to get to than others. In fact Idaho has one of the largest number of known hot springs of any state. It is easy in Idaho to find privacy at a hot springs. There are some that get crowded; the springs that are easy to find, but most are clean, uncrowded, beautiful and pristine and sometimes you have to walk through a fast moving river to the other side to sit in a spring but that makes it more rewarding.
Some springs are ok if you want to sit in them nude and some are a little busier with children so you would want a swim suit unless you want everything dangling in front of the young ones
I know of tons of hot springs and I would only consider a very small number of them overcrowded. If you find an overcrowded hot spring then you have not done your homework.

We had water rights to part of a hot spring in Cambridge years ago. Was great. The pool we had was 105 by 85 foot. Six foot deep in the center. Water temp at the spring a scalding 152 degrees but in the huge pool of 240K gallons is mellowed down to 99 to 103 in the summer. The hot spring is located on a parcel of privately owned land and there is a trailer park on the property. They were going to develop it to a small recreation area. Not sure if this has happened or not. They might be interested in selling it. We sold and moved in 98. Our friends bought our house and love it.
