You can camp here with tents, a camper, or horses. This isn't a trail or hike. You drive directly to it, but it is a great soak! $5 per person.

Not a trail or a hike but it’s a nice soak! Get there early for sure since it’s just one tub. More privacy there than Quinn’s

I go to this hot spring often. Leroy.The owner has since passed away. Sadly that was part of the experience of the place, These are healing waters. Only 2 places in the world with the mineral content of these waters. Baden Baden Germany and Hot Springs,Mt. Not a great place for kids. No diving or splashing. People come here from places far and wide to soak. You will meet some characters here, so be prepared for and off beat experience. Log cabins, tipis and tent spots to rent. Alamedas Motel is a great place to stay, too. Pretty cheap! Be sure to visit Camas Natural Foods when you are in town.

Peaceful, beautiful and seemingly low key. We stopped a few places before finding this spot so we decided to pay our $5s and nap in the sun and plunge in the water, one bigger pool which is nice and hot and a hot tub sized pool which is cooler and ok for small children. There is an outside shower which runs hot as well! I can't wait to go back and perhaps camp next time as well.

The owner is very old and comes across kind of rude but he really is harmless, his name is Leroy and will have smart butt comments. The price is $5 per person , no exceptions for kids everyone pays $5. DON'T DRINK ALCOHOL AT THIS SPRING HE WILL ASK YOU TO LEAVE!
