  • Update (12/21/2017): Closed as of 12/19/2017 for an indefinite amount of time due to mudslide making Forest Road 19 impassible. Snow is making the southern route impassible as well. Call the McKenzie River Ranger Station for further updates.
  • Popular spot for soaking. Arrive early before the crowd arrives. Clothing optional, so be prepared for nudity.
  • Beautiful landscape. Easy access. Heard it’s mega crowded on the weekends but we went first thing in the morning and it was mind blowing. Every person we met along the way was friendly and kind. Very clean. Pack in pack out. It had a covered shelter To put your things to stay dry but it’s a bit from the pools so I wouldn’t bring anything too valuable. Was a comfortable setting to try out the clothing optional. Warning: this was my first hot springs so I didn’t know they were stinky. You get used to the fart smell after awhile...nature of the game.
  • First hot springs I've been to, a great experience! Will definitely be back again
  • Beautiful! But even with snow on the ground, there was a steady amount of people
