Oregon is home to many amazing 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 to 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 land areas. Report suspicious activity to corresponding regional public lands officials (take pictures).

  1. 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.

  2. Friend of the Springs

    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.

  3. 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.

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

  5. 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.

  6. 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)

  7. Try Belknap Hot Springs – – 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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. 🙁
