Three smallish pools by the side of the creek. Very relaxing. Steep trail down to the creek and a relatively long dirt road to get there. Still it is worth it.

We really enjoyed this place. It was beautiful... had white noise of the river to drown out talking. Occasionally someone would show up with a bluetooth speaker, which is tasteless & obnoxious. But, that's life. It's a really nice place, fairly secluded & very beautiful

This was a good spot to go with a kid, since the small, shallow pool include plenty of warm water options. If you go, please don't be skittish to naturists.

this is a wonderful place to go to. You must leave it clean and be respectful if you go here. This is clothing optional and should remain so. Be kind to others and respectful to nature. I love camping here.

Buckeye Hot Springs is not easy to find, but worth asking for directions. To access the hot springs, you have to hike down a cliff with some loose rock and brush. There are a couple of mud bottomed shallow pits surrounded by rocks on the...More

I've visited Buckeye many times over the years and most recently on July 4 around midday. There's a large pool beside the river with part of it under a cave. There's also two hot pools on the hillside above the river. Because there were so...More
