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.

  1. Planning a trip with my daughter mid March, 2018. Can anyone who has been there recently let me know what kind of conditions to expect?

  2. Iā€™m heading there as well in a week. From a friend who lives close by it is my understanding that the snow is gone the gate is open and the weather is around 60. Should be a perfect time to visit!! ?

  3. Fawn. Is the Gate open now?

  4. I was thinking about going up there next week maybe on a Thursday. Does anybody know if it’s crowded on Thursdays? And what are the conditions like there? What should I expect to see

  5. Any update from the people who recently visited? Would love to hear before we make the trip in 3 days

  6. Unwashed degenerates, dirty dogs, and discarded diapers. Saw a chill dude put dogfood in a plastic deli container, which the dog proceeded to nuzzle into a nearby soaking pool, dumping its contents in the tepid stewpot of humans. Pure vileness, accessible by a 15-minute, whiplash-inducing, wartorn potholed service road. Disappointment awaits!
