  • Lol I love watching all the tourists jump right in the ponds both here and champaign. I hope you realize when swimiming in this area, you and your family are swimming in the urine and feces from all the surrounding homes. They all have cesspools that contaminate the ponds. I fish nearly every day in area (catch and release-could never eat these fish), all while watching the people peeing on the shore and leaving dirty diapers at the champaign ponds. Ironically champaign is the color of urine, lol.
  • Warm spring water mixing with cool ocean water. Just make sure to wash off at the shower area there before you leave. There are a few fish in the pool so you can snorkel and take pictures. Weekends are pretty crowded.
  • I got really sick after going here, ended up in the hospital. I loved the area, and hate it that I'm the only downer here. There's signs everywhere to swim at your own risk, so I did, and was fine the rest of the day after swimming, but woke up feeling really bad the next morning. By 24 hours later, I was stuck in bed, going no where. Didn't throw up, just felt completely powerless, and unable to walk. For days this got worse and worse, ruined the rest of our trip. After 5 days, I checked into the hospital ..and after 6 or 7 hours in bed, and an IV of some anti biotic and 2 bags of water, it some how it ends up being some kind of funky nasty that was doing it, the anti biotics wiped it out. I never get sick, but this was a life changer. The water in the pond gets loaded with weird bacteria, and just swishes around with all kinds of grossness. So, I'm just hoping you read this before you let your kids or you go in there.. It looks safe, it's not. No, its not.
  • This is a great spot to check out. It has a really nice swimming area, restrooms, and showers. It's a great place to take the family, especially if you are camping out at nearby Isaac Hale Park.
  • Go in at own risk. Geothermal pool sounds interesting however the number of dirty diapers on the side of the "pool" and those still attached to infants in the water stopped me dead in my tracks. Warning signs advise you not to go in with open sores or wounds. Water is "flushed" through an opening cut at the ocean end of the pool however when I was there the flow was not even remotely close enough to keep a clean level in and out of the pool. I'm no germaphobe having spent a vast majority of my life living in remote locations via the military but there is no award I would have accepted for bravery to get in that pool. Stick you finger in to get a feel for it then promptly wash it. Parking is minimal at best with several cars there just selling trinkets taking up spots.
