A nice soak

Visited here in February 2015 and i was not disappointed. The water was perfect temperature and the views were spectacular :) A fine early morning soak after a chilly night.

We arrived early in the morning and took a nice warm bath in one of the springs. People are skinny dipping in the springs so don't be offended when you see someone naked. We wanted to explore another spring but the guy sitting in it told us he would not share ... please be kind and let other people enjoy... More

We've been visiting this awesome hot springs, but now the word's out and you have to wait in line to get a chance to visit the pools. The country is gorgeous, it is just that these pools have become too popular.

How can you not like a FREE natural hot spring with four different temperature pools, and a view for miles? Easy to access and lots of free parking. Ya gotta love it.

I stuck my finger in one of the main pools and it was VERY warm. I wandered around the area; besides a few scattered hot springs, there are nice views to Bridgeport valley and interesting rock formations created over the eons by the hot mineral waters.

Travertine Hot Springs were a bit disappointing. We arrived at 8:30 pm to find the springs filled with people who had been there more than 3 hrs. Who does that? Enjoy, chill, but then move along!

The pool near the parking lot was concrete, hot, but about the size of a large bathtub. The next pools were just tepid, also small, not very deep at all, and full of people on this holiday weekend. Evidently there were pools lower but I heard that they were similar to the other pools. I wouldn't go again. Maybe a... More

Yew, it is not for everybody but for travelers, explorers and PCT's it is a beautiful and relaxing place where you can enjoy the view of the valley while relaxing in warm and energy charging water and at the same time find interesting chattings.

We went in the summertime in August and so it may have been that there just wasn't a lot of water but for me it was not worth the side trip, or even taking the time to change into a bathing suit. My family did go in the (stinky water) but I chose not to and sat on the side... More

Other than the nude couple that felt very "free" with their bodily expressions, this hot springs is an easy access ( no pun intended) place to have this kind of experience.
