These hot springs are right on the river, right by the highway. There is a parking lot, which you are supposed to pay to use, but the instructions are unclear. The only "facilities" are a porta-potty. The place is popular, and fills up early. Crowd...More

This place is amazing. Most hot springs are just pools . This place has the natural rock cliffs where the Hot springs spill over creating an amazing hot hot shower. You have to try this!!!

This is a great little place to kick back and swim or sit in the hot springs. Some of the pools were too hot for me, but jumping off the rocks was awesome!

This is an interesting site geologically, and sees like a lot of fun for families! Kids can swim in an eddy of the river while adults soak in the perfectly hot pools. It was a bit crowded when we visited, but there are so many...More

These hot springs are really nice as they are connected to the river and there is a nice picnic/camping area. The only downside is the pools are not very big and it can get pretty crowded sometimes.

Amazing to sit in a shallow pool of warm mineral water and have a just-about-too-hot-but-actually-perfect temperature shower of water from the ledge above. Sit there and watch the river, and stop thinking for a while. Wonderful.

Lovely setting. One large tub in the campground, 4-5 smaller soaking areas down a walkway, by the river. The nicest tub holds about 5, but is only chest deep. One small pool, first you come to, has hot water shower cascading onto you as you...More

Moderate difficulty. August flow ok. Heat about the same year round but might feel hotter in August.

Yes. Still accessible. There is a campground there that is open depending upon snow conditions. It is a short walk from the end of the camp to the hot springs.
