    Peter, wait till your in your 60’s with bad arthritis and then tell me how you feel about people and hot springs.

  2. There are ecological impacts that are just not worth using this resource. There are other methods of NATURAL energy……solar, wind, and so on that could be used and NOT harm the environment. I purpose we focus or direction there in finding a better solution to our energy needs that would benefit all.

  3. Geothermal is the next step to clean and RENEWABLE energy that taking us away from fossil fuels. Geothermal does not have detrimental impacts on the environment such as dams do. In order to move away from coal, oil, and nuclear we will have to have all renewable possibilities including wind, solar, AND geothermal. The upper 6 miles of the earth ‘s crust contains 50,000 as much energy found in all the world’s oil and gas reserves combined.

  4. My hunting buddy found a natural hot spring by Ukiah. He took me there during deer season this year. It is probably only known to locals as it is way off the beaten path. It is only about 2.5 feet deep and about 12 feet across. Very relaxing though.

  5. Went to Three Forks Warm Spring. I have a Subaru impreza with a larger tires and a small lift. We made it the whole way to the spring. I would not recommend anything with less ground clearance. The water is about 95 degrees which is perfect on a 75 degree plus day. We went twice fist on a warm day and it was heaven. The second time it was 60 with a cold wind. Too cold! The 30 mile gravel road gets pretty sketchy when it is raining. Great place when its warm.

  6. I would love comments on Eagles Hot Lake camping and hot springs. I went to the webpage for the campsite and they do not say wether the hot springs are available to use. Marla

  7. so my friend and i decided to go and have our first soak. we visited this website many times to check the road status and get directions. when we finally went i decided to grab the GPS coordinates and enter them in my navi system thinking that it would take out the guess work. the coordinates the site on my iPhone gave me were 43.294/122.367. coming from ashland we had two options to take, I5 or hwy 62, we opted for the beautiful drive up 62. after passing many signs for Toketee falls and what not we trusted the gps. well 40 something miles later we were not even close! thankfully my friend is super positive! and kept me calm and kept painting a pretty picture of our actual situation. we saw some super beautiful scenery and found some cool camps we want to check out in the future. but bound and determined i was i wanted to soak! i needed some skin time! we back tracked up to the signs we had seen earlier and a half mile after turning off 138 we say Hot Springs 4 miles.. relieved, frustrated, and other mixed emotions we went tearing up the road. we came to a fork and one road looked more maintained than the other so we followed it. six miles later and no signs we turned around just as bewildered as before. we came down the road and saw a sign that said hot springs two miles left. we celebrated again, and followed the road. two miles later there we were. at this point its pitch black and we’re pretty unprepared for a night hike we said “screw it! we’ve gone this far” a short, steep, dark hike later we found the hot springs. we stripped down and hopped in. in the first 5 minutes we just melted and laughed. “we finally made it!! we soaked for about an hour, tried out the three bigger pools and just loved it! i can’t imagine the trip had we not gotten lost. I’m still curious about the previous GPS coordinates, and why they’re posted. but damn glad for the journey!

  8. Hi Sam – sounds like you guys landed at Umpqua Hot Springs. I remember that steep hike well plus when you mentioned passing Toketee Fall I knew without a doubt that was Umpqua . I hope you have a chance to go back during the day because the views from the tub are breath taking…

  9. Opinion needed…..which is the best spring – with the most fund, best crowd to visit nearest to Corvallis/Eugene?

  10. dont share… that place is being trashed and over use with hideaway and leman hot spring closed.

  11. Hi there, is there sulphur hot spring close to portland? Thank you.

  12. The best springs near Eugene are up in the cascades. You might just look at the map provided if you can’t figure it out. There are no springs near Corvallis.

  13. Closest springs near Portland are along the Clackamas River at Austin Hot Springs.

  14. here on the Big Island, Geothermal is being pushed. We are learning that it IS NOT HARMLESS, AND DOES HAVE NEGATIVE RESULTS AND ACTIONS on people and the Environment. Gas leaks, toxic fumes and chemicals are released, Birth defects are rising too. Look beyond the surface glitter for the Truth !

  15. Thank you for this fantastic resource. I am currently developing a tourism/development project for Oregon hotsprings (particularly those around Lane County). Feel free to suggest additional resources or idea 🙂

  16. What’s the easiest walk to the closest hot springs in southern Oregon? I’m in GP and can’t hike to umpqua since my spine surgeries but I think a good natural soak is way past due.

    Juliana, please don’t. Some of the hot springs have become such a “touristy” thing that they no longer offer the incredible, deep connection of healing and nature, and instead have become places where there is smoking, beer, loud party talk, and other activities that are disrespectful not only to the others there, but to the ancient, sacred energy of the place. Some of these springs have been gathering sites of peace and prayer for ten thousand years.
    Not every tourist needs to find them.

  18. Science teacher here – geothermal basically works because the ground water gets close enough to the hot interior of the earth to heat up. All that happens with responsible geothermal is that the hot water is tapped for steam, which turns a turbine, which makes electricity, and the cooled water is returned into the earth,
    No toxins, no lethal gasses, environmental impact is restricted to the facility size. Almost all of Iceland is powered by geothermal and they’re doing great. We need less people bitching about the ideas we have to get off of fossil fuels because there is literally nothing worse than fossil fuels.

  19. Which springs do you recommend to hike to? I was going to try Umpqua, but I hear it is closed. Any suggestions? Thanks

  20. Are there any hot springs which are NOT clothing optional? I would love to try out hot springs (never have) but have NO desire to see anyone naked! I’d like to find hot springs where clothing is required.

    I like to find a hot spring where it’s clothing not nude

  22. Wondering how steep the hike (getting in and getting out) is for either Austin or Bagby – which appear to be the closest to Portland. I have serious knee problems and really can’t/shouldn’t do downhill hiking. Don’t want to drive all the way there and find out it’s a “no can do” for me (yeah, I am an oldster)

  23. One hot springs I know that requires swimwear is Bonneville Hot Springs

  24. Try Belknap Hot Springs – http://www.belknaphotsprings.com/ – it is a commercial resort with rooms, cabins, trails along the river – the primary soaking is a swimming pool that they fill with the hot water. Actually, Bagby has a separate building with separate rooms for those clothing compulsive. The natural area is not visible from the clothed area. But, I would bet that if you ever soaked nude, you’d find it is the only way to go. Besides, nude people are just people without clothing. If you can accept that the behavior is the same. The comfort without a wet sticky cold bathing suit is much greater.

  25. Re hiking into Bagby – it has been 15 years since I’ve been there, but it is about 1.5 miles each way. Typical forest trail, but the elevation gain is maybe 100 to 150 ft as I recall. I’ve got a bum knee now and a hip that occasionally gives me trouble and I doubt I’d be able to make it comfortably, sounds like we’re about the same.

  26. Nice geothermal springs near Portland is actually in Washington (just across the Bridge of the Gods) in Carson.

  27. Does anyone know of the hot springs out of Ukiah, Oregon? I went out there today to find the hidden springs, but no luck finding them. 🙁

  28. Go talk to Chris the bartender… At the thicket.. I think she could tell you.

  29. If you are referring to bonivillie hot springs, it’s closed now

  30. Anyone know of any good hot springs near Hood River, OR? Open to Oregon or Washington! Thanks 🙂

  31. I agree. It’s time for fossil fuels to go away!

  32. Carson Hot Springs is in Carson, about 6 miles east of Bonneville HS

    Belknap Hot Springs is one.

  34. Has anyone been to the mcredie hot springs as of late and how manyvare ther 3?

  35. It is crazy that all these hot springs are all near or to the east of the Cascade mountain range. Although, it makes sense when you think about it. Volcanic activity is still present in the area. The presence of magma deep underground heats it up.

    How can there be so many private/pay hot springs in Southwest Oregon but no public/free ones? It doesn’t make sense. It seems like if there’s one hot spring in an area then surely there must be more? I realize that southern Oregon is full of hippies that must have at some point had this same idea and yet, there are still no free hot springs in Southwest Oregon? Do I just need to go hiking more often? Am I incorrect in my assumption that one spring could possibly mean other undiscovered springs out there? Thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks

  37. I went to Klamath falls lake trying to find the supposed hot spring and it is non existent. After talking to a local it was there many many years ago but is not there anymore. Also Paulina Lake Hot Springs is a 2 mile walk then you have to dig your own pool and wait for it to fill. You also must dig your own hotspring at East Lake hot spring area right next to it. I went to al 3 of these places looking for hot springs and was Out of luck. Wish someone had included this good information while I was searching for hot spring areas.
