A Good Introduction to a Hot Spring and Mineral Water Soak First, this is not cheap at $10 per person. And, it's not very “natural” in that it's two man-made swimming pools, one with cool water and the other a “natural” warm pool. But, it's...More

I have been to over 100 hot springs in this country,and this is not one of my favorites.free flowing natural hot water does not need chlorine.You might as well put a hot tub in your backyard if you like chlorin

Bathing suits available if you forgot yours. Located in a snowy valley--first we took a hike up the valley in the snow to a frozen water fall, then came down and luxuriated in the hot pool.

We did not camp here, though camping is available. We just came for a visit to the hot springs. Do not expect it to be rustic. For health and safety reasons the springs are fed into two swimming pools, one hot and one cool. The...More

The hot springs are perfect for relaxing the tired muscles after a long hike. While the pool complex was a bit crowded, it was still a welcome respite for us tired hikers. We enjoyed hopping from the hot pool to the cold pool immensely. The...More

Hi there.. I just wondered how far is the waterfall hike please and how can it be shortened if its a long one? - Thinking of coming here in December.... Many thanks

Response from Kelly G | Reviewed this property |
The hike cannot be shortened as it is a straight trail to and from the waterfall. I cannot recall the exact distance, but my daughter did it when she was 4 years old. We hiked it this summer and I want to say that it is 4-5... More
I am disabled and use a walker. The park ranger said there are no disabled parking places. I find this rather horrifying. Walks to 1/2 mile are common to get to the pools. What am I to do? Catherine Goodno, LCSW

There are spaces right at the pool yes. But they fill up first. There is a ranger on the gate who diverts you to the further away parking. Any reasonable ranger would let you head up to the ranger parking spot at the pool
Can I bring my dog

Dogs are allowed, on leash, at the campground and on the trails. They are not allowed in the pool area.
