I have stayed at Sierraville Hot springs in the campground three times and the first two times where okay and it was peaceful and reasonably clean even though the campground tend to be dusty. However last year and then again this year the place was crowded and unsanitary. Why? Because from labor day onward many people returning from the burning... More

Although I really like the setting and how quite the place is I find it very disturbing and almost gross that people don't put towels underneath when they sit on the chairs with their bare butts!!!!!! Ive gave the lady a feedback and she had an attitude, she was defensive and she said that that "it is clothing optional and... More

Very quaint, relaxing and refreshing place. It's clothing-optional, and most people opt for it, so beware. You can camp on the premises. The fee is somewhat steep, but to be honest, the staff seems a bit relaxed about it. The most popular spring looks like a swimming pool, which is a tad unromantic, but there is a little round really... More

Very unsanitary. After going here I got a really bad cold. Can not say it was from soaking here, but the hygiene of the people here, and there were people here with colds and who knows what on the day I went here was something to be desired.

Sierra Hot Springs was a trip we made because of our love of their sister facility at Harbin Hot Springs. Sierra Hot Springs did not disappoint. The little cafe there served amazing food and coffee. You definitely will not go hungry there. There is camping available there as well as rooms to rent. The springs itself is much smaller than... More

I love this "old hippie" enclave! We have been coming here for some 10 years or so and the magic never wavers. It is quiet and peaceful here and for the most part, people respect that. The outdoor Serenity pool is a rock enclosed, soft sand bottom, delight. You are under the pines and full sky. The hotter Domed pool... More

For someone from east of the Mississippi it is somewhat difficult to find true hot springs, and the Resort gives a great chance to experience the hot springs and the Sierra Nevada mountains. It is a very convenient 1/4 mile walk to the springs, and has a wonderful lodge ambiance. We particularly enjoyed sitting by the wood stove fire and... More

As a repeat visitor to Harbin Hot Springs I learned about their sister property Sierra Hot Springs on previous stays but I was always on the wrong side of California every time I visited.

Tranquil and surreal. Several pool options. I definitely recommend the Temple Dome, however if naked people bother you, I'd recommend holding off on the Temple Dome. Clean and safe. Philosophy Cafe is definitely worth going to, even if soaking in a natural hotsprings isn't your thing. Good service, good prices, excellent food!
