Great, relaxing environment. Extremely clean pool & area. Although changing area is dated, it is very clean. It is a Mike & a half down a dirt road snd worth the trip. Friday is clothing day. Great hours. Beautiful area. Great, healing water. Friendly people.

What a beautiful afternoon! The hot springs water was clear and perfect temperatures around the pool. Sunbathing at its best with a gentle breeze. Relaxing and quiet surroundings, clean facilities and very helpful welcome and introduction from Lucy. We will definitely visit again!

A bit off the beaten path but well worth the trip! Water very clean and great pool. The attendant at the office was friendly and helpful. Quiet and mellow-will be visiting again soon!
