UNSAFE
Jun 2021 • Couples
My husband and I legitimately felt unsafe here. As soon as you pull into the trail head there are MULTIPLE homeless encampments full of people who I assume use the hot springs as personal bath tubs. There were people asleep in sleeping bags on the ground. When we pulled in there was a group of people who literally squatted and used the bathroom right in front of us on the ground. Then there was a couple heavily packing on the PDA. We pulled up to look at the map on how far the springs were away from the trailhead and there were bullet holes all in the map along with several missing person flyers and so much graffiti that you couldn’t even read the map.

After seeing this we decided to leave, we didn’t even get to see the hot springs. When we tried to pull out of the lot the group of people were like “Where you going so soon?!” but it wasn’t asked in a friendly. Whatever their intentions, this place is a complete dump and honestly terrifying. I am so disappointed that the rangers or sheriffs haven’t done something to address this. I will never come back here.

Too many people for the old "secret" springs in Oregon
Jul 2020
Boy I feel old.

I used to come here while in college so much I nearly lived there. Back when you could camp in the area, across the river was an awesome spot during the summer. There was only one pool back in the day.

Unfortunately, the influx of people into Oregon and the Internet has overwhelmed the water's capacity (the time it takes to refresh the pools). That's not great.

It's really a place, even with the additional pools dug out, that really would support only a handful of people at one time. So, during the peak of the summer it is probably worth avoiding. In the winter, it might still be great. Strap on some snow shoes and visit :)

Would Not Recommend
Oct 2019 • Friends
I've been to plenty of hotsprings, and I was really not impressed by this one. The pools were incredibly small, and it was incredibly packed. Forcing you to bump knees and other body parts with strangers, who will likely be in their birthday suit.

In addition to that, the pools have a very low input/output of water, and get dirty very quickly. Especially in busy days.

I would not recommend making the drive out here. Instead i would rather find a resort style hotspring that you know is clean, and just as beautiful.

Interesting Place!
Nov 2018
We had heard about this place, it was very interesting. The hot springs are unique as they trickle down into other pools and over the edge. It is up on a cliff, so be careful. It is a bit of a hike to get to it, something you have to see! Be prepared, people do sit in the pools in their birthday suit!

Very, very natural.
Jul 2019
I've been to multiple hotsprings (Breitenbush, Bagby, Sol Duc, Bonneville) and this one was probably my least favorite. Sol Duc and Bonneville are like resort style where the water is pumped into manmade pools, so if you want very clean and regulated hotsprings, those places are for you. Breitenbush is a natural hot spring but is kept up beautifully by the Breitenbush Retreat, so there is no trash, garbage, smoking, etc. Umpqua Hot Springs is not well regulated or run besides the basic state park, so it mimics Bagby in that way. Umpua pools are multiple and natural made, and look over a beautiful river, so it does have absolutely amazing views. I found the pools to be a bit lukewarm for my liking, and they were a bit dirty. There were a lot of people there and there were people smoking as well as garbage around the area. It was kind of a grungy feel. Bagby mimics that feeling for sure, but at least with Bagby you can be in your own personal wooden stall and be one on one with your partner in a hollow log. If you really like hot springs I would suggest coming here to check it out. I would necessarily seek this out again in the future though just due to the garbage and the smoking. Just an FYI it does invovle a steep climb to get there.

Great Hot Springs
Sep 2019
These are pretty much in the middle of nowhere. The gravel road is very potholed, but we made it our small rental car. The short hike is not clearly marked - the trail branches a few times, but it isn't too hard to figure out. The trail to the pools is rough and steep in some areas. Once there, expect nudity and some weed smokers. (If those aren't your things, I wouldn't go.) The water is not crystal clear and might be considered to be dirty. That's to be expected for natural hot springs. We went mid-week and it was still pretty busy - 20ish people. Overall a very relaxing visit. Do try the various temperatures of the different pools.

Dirty pool, weed and nude everywhere
May 2019 • Family
My biggest problem was the REALLY dirty pool, I really didn't mind the weed or the naked people around. But we made a big mistake of taking our parents along, which was awkward :) So be careful who you take with you.
But one of the best parts was the hike to the hot springs itself. It was a very easy hike with lush green forest surrounding us. Certainly recommend the hike!

Quick hike to Umpqua Hot Springs
Jun 2019 • Friends
My wife, our friend, and I took a quick hike up to Umpqua Hot Springs. We were really looking forward to going, and left early to hopefully avoid any crowds. When we arrived, it wasn't too crowded, but still had to wait a bit for one of the pools to open up. The largest pool was occupied by a couple elderly men who were nude and smoking pot. Of course, only a few people felt was comfortable joining them, while the rest of us waited for the lower pools to open up. We stayed about 20 minutes to a half hour, then hiked back down the hill. The natural pools were nice and warm. The hottest were near the source at the top, and each were cooler the further you get from the top.

Best natural hot springs I've seen in US
Jun 2019
Actually 7 pools varying in temperature as each drops into the next. Terrain a bit rough so caution needed when moving about the area. Beautiful scenery. Well behaved guests when we were there midday. Most wearing suits but I would have been comfortable without since no one seemed to be there to look at others but to enjoy the hot water and the beautiful spot. Worth the drive and the walk.

Beautiful Day
Jun 2019 • Couples
We had a lovely time. I just moved to Oregon and it was my first time at a hot springs ever. It was clothing optional, but with all the kids around, I only went topless. Very relaxing.
