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!

Made a special trip for this between Springfield, OR, and Sisters, OR, only to find that the parking lot is full. When the parking lot is full, you have to park a mile away in either direction, and walk. And the parking lot is embarrassingly...More

There is no day pass to buy for your car, but you will park and then pay a day use fee to use the hot springs. There is a park ranger there to take your money and warn you about the nudity. They are closed...More
