We've been here a few times over the years. It is a very unique place, and really nice if you catch a time when it isn't crowded. The pools in total only have room for 10 people or so at a time. Best bet is a weekday, pitch a tent on BLM land overnight, so you can enjoy the springs under the stars, then get up early for sunrise, and before too many others start to trickle in.
Be a good neighbor to other visitors and don't leave trash, make loud noise, or let your dog in the water. Seriously. This isn't a party spot, but a natural wonder and relaxing environment. Soaking without a suit is common here, and is functional more than anything. Who wants to have to pack up wet stuff after when you're on a roadtrip?
Not a destination, but worth a short side-trip if it's on your way somewhere. The views across the valley are astounding.

Much has been reviewed on this little oasis already. The ease of reaching this spot makes it very easy to access. The parking area is small but you can park parallel to the road. Summer mid-day seemed to lessen the number of people that were there.
The main small pools offered three different temps and with a very small group of people in the area all three could be tested. There are smaller pools in the nearby area that are usable with less people to deal with. This is more a social gathering area than a therapeutic spa but do enjoy the people.

Easy to find, the dirt road is well maintained, but probably not good for low clearance vehicles. Beware! Several little natural pools tucked away under the limestone with the water temp very pleasant. Don't spoil it by bringing a large or loud group! This is the kind of place that authorities could close down in a heartbeat!

We were told about the hot springs and promptly made a detour. A busy place with a few hot (and a couple of cool springs). Some people were bathing in. A little hiking and a dirt rad involved, but a fun stop to make along the way.

I love this place and it is one of the best hot springs. Please though go with respect and keep this place clean. Do not come with an attitude and know this is clothing optional and should stay that way. Be one with nature and heal in it's waters. This is a sacred place to the local native tribe that lives near it and be respectful and do not climb on the ancient build up of minerals or we will lose access to this amazing place!!!

great views from these pods..worth driving from bridgeport to see if they are crowded or not..10 people is too many. water is a good temp, not too hot, not too cool. be sure to find all the pods, as they are pretty spread out. great view of eastern sierras. dont need 4 wheel to get there. bring something to put your stuff on..no benches or logs or anything to keep stuff out of dirt.

Yikes!!!! Dont take the kids there!!!! Well. maybe if nobody is there. We showed up around 3 pm on a monday and the wife received some nasty looks from some guys who do not date women if you know what I mean. No worries, its their spot and they keep it clean.

Well, I remember this place when it was secluded and clean, nearly 17 years ago. I visited this place again last week and can tell you its not like it used to be.

They have now put in bathrooms nearby (like I want someone going into those and using it and then getting in the hotspring with me!) The parking lot area is more developed and it seemed to be a bit more trashed.

When we got there to take a dip in either pool (upper or lower) we found the upper to be pretty hot. The lower was being used and while we were there, another couple seemed to race down the hill and she stripped and hopped in before we even had a chance to take a dip. Since we don't like to share a dip we just left. Nothing missed. The better hotsprings are near Mammoth, anyway. Like hilltop spring, shepherd's and crabcooker. But even crabcooker is hard to get to now since they plowed the road to keep you out. It was dry, too, and the water was pretty weak.

You should definitely put this hot spring on your to-do list! The view from the tubs are absolutely stunning. There are several spring pool options and can accommodate several people in each tub. It is only 1 mile off HWY 395, dirt road, but well maintained. There are some pull outs along the dirt road for camping, but camping AT the hot springs isn't permitted. **Like many hot springs, there are plenty of people bathing nude, FYI**. There are no "hours" of operation, they are accessible 24-7... a GREAT place to watch a meteor shower or star gaze at night!

WHAT an amazing find. We stuck our feet in, and after days of hiking it was just what we needed. Tucked away in the mountain, there are two pools, one is right by the parking lot, and the other is a hike down the trail (short) and there are several pools there to dunk into. Some people choose to go naked, so if you're uptight, don't go. Beautiful location, views and calmness over the whole area.
