  1. What ??? yeah, I heard THIER were some hot springs around cougar, just never found them. Iv’e been to cougar over 30 times and we never made it so far as to leave and try n find more. This will be a new road I will travel someday………. down the road from Cougar!!

  2. Chlorine huh?… If I wanted that I’d endure a soak at the ymca.

  3. Not chlorine–chloriDe. It was wonderful! Highly recommend–it is a magical place. Gardens hidden in the forest and two great pools for soaking. The place is kid and dog friendly and has a magical little trail to the campsites that makes one think that elves or fairies might pop out at any moment. We did not stay in lodge but camped by the river and slept listening to the sound of the rushing McKenzie. We also ate at the little grill which was affordable, yummy, and we sat outside watching the river. Highly highly recommend this place.
