I was so looking forward to going to this hotspring based on everyone's review,and the cool awesome youtube videos, but I was so disappointed by how small and crowded it was. I couldn't stay more than 10 mins, because I simply couldn't find a place...More

The hot springs recently opened after a road had to be repaired. Now it’s closed again, unfortunately, because of forest fire. Check with ranger station at McKenzie Bridge before you drive up for a visit. I’m still giving it 5 stars.

Went over the weekend and camped near by. The hike to the hot spring is about .20 miles. This is a clothing optional site so be prepared, especially if you’re taking kids. There is a $7.00, per person, so bring cash. Parking is easy right...More

Maybe times have changed, but when I hiked back to these springs a few years ago, chill and un-sexualized nudity was the standard attire. Not being a "naked" person myself, I was a bit hesitant but felt I'd stand out even more in suit. It...More

This was an absolutely beautiful place, and one of the highlights of my trip to Oregon (CA native.) My only tip is to try and visit on a weekday or when the weather is colder/more overcast. We went on a Friday afternoon in April and...More

I believe now it is $3 a day to be there and it is sun up to sun down. I have not been there in a while, but it always is a nice feature to see in Oregon.

This hot spring is commonly very busy. It is wise to try and go early in the day to ensure you get a parking spot!

Spent several hours here soaking after a week of hiking through Washington and Oregon. Easy short hike to 5 pools. There is also a cold stream that runs along side of it. Many people use the bucket and dump cold water over themselves after soaking...More
