JUNTURA HOT SPRINGS
This is a great spot with the river right next to the springs. Pool is large enough for 8 – 10 more if clothed lol. Beware of the Juntura “Ghost”. She is real…she might visit you at the spring you never know.
been here several times while hunting in the area. beautiful. there is also a smaller pool rocked in right by the river. it’s a little cooler. need 4WD to drive to the island otherwise you need to park further back on the rough road and cross the small channel by foot.
A trip to Juntura Hot Spring sounds interesting…
I soaked here today 5-24-14. Turn off Hwy 20 at
43 46 0.37, -118 2 23.14 and take dirt road along river. Go under the steel bridge and then turn right where bridge is closed. I was able to go 3/4 mile in small car from hwy 20, then walk the last 1/4 mile to the island. The river was fast moving and waist deep, I recommend having a walking stick to assist balance when fording river on foot. The main soaking pool is large and 4′ deep at places. Very warm water percolates up through the natural bottom. This temp of this large pool only allowed soaks of 5-10 minutes due to high temps. There are two smaller, shallower pools on the bank of the river that are cooler. Lots of camping spots in immediate area.
Soaked under the blood moon, 9-27-15. Beautiful and peaceful, very little trash. River level extremely low. Love this spot!
We went there today and there was absolutely nobody there. We took off route 20 and drove all the way on the dirt road (across the small steel bridge) for about a mile until we saw the island on our right. There was a small foot path down to the river and we took it and “swam” across the river to the island. The current was strong but we managed to swim across and back (but wouldn’t recommend it for everybody). On the island there were few cairns and we were able to find the hot springs fairly easy. There was also two blue tarps there that we used to sit in and hold down the steaming hot water. Such an interesting and fun experience!
We’re headed there in the next couple of days, should be an exciting trip – we’ll let everyone know how it turns out! Remember though, whoever visits, if we are to keep this site accessible, fun, safe and treasured, we all have to do our part to keep the area clean of human waste and destruction. Leave no trace, create happy memories!
Nicely put silicondreaming! Have a stellar sojourn!
Drove there today 4/8/2017 and was very dissapointed. As were walking along the road there are poached deer carcasses laying around decompsing in the water. We could see the spring across the river because of the amount of trash left behind. The current was fast but i wasnt hanging around such a polluted area. Great place for your pets and family to get sick or injured.
