The location is nice. There is a river that you can access without paying the $2 fee. The thermal springs consist of three small pools. The two of them seem to be completely artificial as the water is guided there by pipes. The upper one...More

This was the hot springs that you can drive to. The spring is a boulder lined pool and sits apart from a dwelling that offers showers and changing rooms. On this date, the water was lukewarm and it was pretty busy as it was Sunday....More

Made the mistake of trying to get here in a small rental car. Definitely need an SUV Only one pool and no services. $5 per person. Not really worth the long difficult drive.

Rustic natural hot springs. We took a dip in the hottest pools first then the second hottest and finally a dip in the cold river. It was therapeutic.

Yes you could hike with your dogs but bring a leash as the people who manage the springs have many animals, ducks, chickens etc.
