Spent 2 nights June 11-13. Trail was muddy but passable. The creek was raging and would be very difficult to cross for most hikers. We crossed in hair-raising fashion, balancing on logs. The pools were a little grimy but 102-ish degrees and wonderful after a day’s hike. The creek is right nearby, as are small rivulets for water consumption. We day-hiked from the hot springs up toward the lakes, but halfway up the snow was still very deep, though it was packed enough to walk on. Very enjoyable camping location!
