Natural Hot-Springs


Hot spring enthusiasts beware, the Umpqua Hot Springs is a great place for a soak among the wooded wilds that are part of Oregon's fame. Nestled on a cliff top perch, Umpqua Hot Springs' view of the North Umpqua River below is one of Oregon hot springs' most memorable. It certainly adds to the soothing pleasure of soaking in this spring. There are two to three oval pools for soaking above and behind the main, covered pool. The larger pool is tub-like due to the minerals from the spring creating a travertine mound over the centuries that caps the cliff side. The main pool exists sunken into this travertine stone with the view opening like an amphitheater to soakers. The upper, smaller pool is 4 by 5 feet and 112 degrees F; the lower, larger pool is 5 by 8 feet and 110 degrees F. Both pools are 2-3 feet deep and floored with coarse sand. Use caution when walking around the pools in this area as the wet travertine can be incredibly slippery. Expect nudity.
