We went to Keough's on New Years day. Outside temperature 40 degrees. I though it was pretty crazy going to an outdoor pool in the winter. Pool water was probably 85 to 90 degrees, very comfortable. Hot tub very nice and warm. Best part about...More

This place has been around for years. The water is great, the pool is good for a cool off (a bit hot for laps, although some do). The facility is very funky, and the bathroom really needs some work. Changing rooms are okay with private...More

Natural Hot Springs experience, Keough Hot Ditch has several small hot pools. Water from the resort flows into several pools created by rock dams. The water in the Keough hot ditch pools hovers around 90 degrees just right for a pleasant soak.

Keough's has been around for a long time. As you drive in on the right you will see the old bathhouses from when the place was first built. There is a small campground available for campers, tent campers, and there are even a few cabins....More

This is one of those easy to miss places that everyone should try to visit at least once. There is a campground (we did not stay there), but the real star of the show is the swimming pool. When you drive up, all you see...More

We’ve always stopped here and camped coming and going up to Lee Vining. $33 a night is too much for water/electric and no dump. They say you can drive 7 miles into town and dump for $5 at Browns Town which they own also. My...More
