Deer Butte Hot Springs

Deer Butte Hot Springs Near Adrian in Oregon

Deer Butte is a small hot spring that can be seen from both sides of Owyhee Lake Road northeast of Snively Hot Springs.

Due to frequent road construction and mudslides, this little gem of a hot springs has become somewhat lost. Remnants of the past are still visible, but not much is left save for a handful of fading hot seeps that used to feed a concrete box.

There just isn’t enough concentrated hot water to do much of anything with. Deer Butte has got you covered if you need a foot bath, but for anything more soak seekers should continue down the road to Snively.

  1. Yea, Snively and Deer Butte are pretty close together along the river. They are two different springs, for sure. Enjoy,

  2. I went to Deer Butte and Snively end of Oct 2015. Deer Butte pools were empty and was just a sulfur pond at the base right off the road, not sure what happened to it. Snively was great.
