Umpqua Hot Springs
Umpqua Hot Springs AKA Toketee Hot Springs in Oregon
Fees: $5/vehicle/day OR Northwest Forest Pass
Located in the central Oregon Cascades about one hour from the I5 corridor, Umpqua Hot Springs is year round accessible. Umpqua features 3 hot pools (one covered) located on a mineral deposit situated above the North Umpqua River.
A brief but steep hike leads intrepid soak seekers to the pools from the signed parking area. Hot springers have a short, quarter-mile hike most of the year or must contend with a 2-mile hike when the snow flies as the Forest Service access road is not plowed during the off-season.

Don’t be surprised when encountering the naked… which is most definitely the norm here. There is also a toilet, two campsites and picnic tables located near the parking area and a composting toilet near the hot springs.
