Don’t bring yo mamma, but bring it if it hurts.

It ain’t pretty, but it absolutely helped with my hands and neck. I want to hate it but can’t; Not a first date place. Not a place of service or drinks with a parasol. BYOB Hippy vibe cool, it’s about the healing. And how can you beat a place that has a local named surfer Dave from New Mexico hangin about.

A fantastic place but might be not for everyone
Jan 2021
Let me start with why this place is great:

1. Natural water! you can see the water coming form a well right into the pool, so there is no any kind of processing.
2. It's really clean. The water runs through the pool at fairly high rate, so it is as good as it gets.
3. Plenty of space. All kinds. Easy to park, the pool is large, plenty of space around to have a picnic.
4. Cheap.
5. Good restrooms/shows to change.
6. Stars! If you stay after sunsets, there is very little background light and you can see stars really well.
7. There are all kinds of people here. Families with young kids, seniors, couples. While it may look ratchet, it's actually well run in a sense it's safe and welcome for everyone.

Why it's not for everyone:

The cheap has the other side. The structures are basic. They all function great, just don't have the upscale feel and they won't look like a resort commercial on Instagram.

Good old American fun

Imagine you have a really cool neighbor with an old ranch property that they discovered a hot spring in a few decades ago. He set up a bunch of ramshackle-looking ways for folks to come by and soak, maybe eat a picnic, and just hang out for as long as they like, as long as they don't make trouble.

That's this place. Sound appealing? Come on by! Want something posh, serene, and sterile? Don't. :)

Great temporary relief for aches and pains.

This is a unique spot. You might be turned off by the condition of grounds, but the water itself has a wonderful benefit to the users. it bubbles out at 100+ degrees and the major pool is large enough to allow swimming and exercising. the facility would rate a five star review if grounds and amenities were as great or nearly as great as the water.

While being quite rustic, the water is very clean. Very healing minerals for all sorts of ailments. All kinds of people visit from all walks of life. I visit this place weekly and have never had an issue.

I agree with the other reviews. Yes, it's not 5 stars, yes there are broken vehicles and junk around. But it was quiet, peaceful and the area around the spring itself was clean. The Franklin brothers were really nice.

I read the reviews and thought how bad could it be? Well it wasn’t the worse place I have ever been to but it did have some questionable attributes. It is not a scenic area unless you enjoy the site of broke down equipment and wrecked vehicles and if you have any sort of physical limitations it may be hard if not impossible to make your way to or in the pool and tubs. It was so slippery we had to crawl to get out of the tub. It had rained all night and was raining when we got there and the springs were lukewarm at best. Would I do it again - sure when it wasn’t so rainy but then I like these funky little low key places.

Loved this natural hotspring
Feb 2019 • Family
The place might not be a five star location but it is absolutely worth enjoying it. The hotspring felt so good and therapeutic. My 15 month enjoyed it so much. The host was very nice and helpful. There are clean changing rooms and towels provided. A must visit.

Glad I've read prior reviews
Dec 2018 • Family
As described in prior reviews, the area has plenty of broken vehicles of all sorts and junk scattered all around. But, considering the price of $5-$7, just the fact of having clean toilets and enclosed changing room, was well worth the experience. The people that answered questions and collected payment were very friendly and helpful. Wish it was a little cleaner, just don't forget your flip flops.

hot springs soaking
Sep 2018 • Friends
if you want off the grid natural hot springs bathing, Franklin is for you. Rustic setting is generous, but water is warm and therapeutic.
