Oregon is home to many beautiful natural hot springs, which are popular destinations for locals and tourists alike. They are located in a variety of scenic regions, from the forests of the Cascade Mountains to the high desert of the eastern part of the state.
There are several different types of hot springs in Oregon, including those that are developed and have facilities like concrete pools and changing rooms, and more secluded hot pools that are accessible only by hiking. Many are on public land and some are on private property that require a fee for access.
Why are hot springs in Oregon, hot?
The earth’s geothermal activity naturally heats hot spring water in Oregon, which is typically rich in minerals and believed to have therapeutic benefits.

Oregon Hot Springs Bathing Notice
No Soap, Shampoo or BIO-Soap/Shampoo Allowed in Hot Springs!
Public hot springs in Oregon are not bathing facilities and do not have ‘plumbing’ like that of commercial, improved hot springs. Soap and shampoo (including biodegradable soap and shampoo) do not completely break down naturally. This pollutes our water systems (ingested by fish, animals, humans) at or near the source. This is also illegal in most wilderness and public lands areas. Report suspicious activity to corresponding regional public lands officials (take pictures).
Leave No Trace
Please pack out everything you bring to natural hot springs and remove all trash encountered (even if it’s not your own). These rare, sacred places are in dire need of our preservation efforts.
Don’t forget to check Oregon road conditions and pick up a trusty hot springs guidebook.

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