Old but fun!

This is a short drive from Minden, NV and worth it. This is a more rustic hot spring compared to... read more

This park is a favorite with locals as well as visitors. Soaking in the hot springs is a delightful activity after a day of skiing or in a light snowfall.
The developed hots springs include two pools. Even though the pools are surrounded by a 5 foot privacy fence - visitors still have a beautiful view of the surrounding mountains while soaking in the pools.. The hot soaking pool has a concrete bench to sit on with the middle open and can accommodate about 50 people. The water in this pool is only abut 4 feet deep and is meant for soaking and is kept about 102 degrees. The other pool is larger and can be used for play and swimming lanes. It is kept cooler - maybe about 75-80 degrees. It feels cold when you directly into it from the hot pool but feels very comfortable within a minute or two. Both pools are drained each night and have continuous running water that drains out to a meadow. The hot springs are open year round except Wednesdays in the winter, Thanksgiving and Christmas.The hot springs can close unexpectedly during thunder and lightning events. I always call ahead just to double check the hours and to see if it is a really crowded day. Occasionally, the pools reach maximum capacity and you have to wait in line for someone to leave before you are allowed in. Currently - as of 12/18 - rices for hot spring pool use are $10 per adult and $5 per child.
The large campground is a 5 minute walk away and is open year round. The bathrooms have flush toilets and are heated in the winter.
The surrounding area offers excellent hiking and wildlife viewing along with good fishing opportunities. We once witnessed a bobcat saunter along on a hillside in back of the hot springs as we casually soaked.
The closest town - Markleevile- is only a few minutes down the road and offers a small but basic general store with an old fashioned porch with chairs. We usually stop here for an ice cream or cold drink on the way home. There is a local bar and restaurant in town too.

If you're into camping, this is one of the nicest campgrounds in California. Hot showers are available, good fishing is nearby and there are lots of places to bike and hike. They occasionally do get a bear or two so keep your food in the bear boxes provided. The quaint little town of Markleeville is just a few miles down the road. Worth a quick visit.

Fun hike to waterfall. 3.2 miles round-trip. Saw bear scat and a bee hive that was underground. The springs were very relaxing....but don't sit by the incoming water pipe....uber-hot!

The hot springs pool makes this state park my husband's favorite since he is a hot springs junkie. Be sure to call the park ((530) 694-2248) because opening days and times for the pool vary during the year. The campground is very busy, so make a reservation.

Great place to go and relax and have fun. Hot mineral pool and cold swimming pool make this a great place to soak your worries away. Great for singles, couples, and families. Awesome hiking trail to waterfalls. Lots of wildlife, be sure your car windows are all the way up or they will get in your car. Overall this is an awesome yet little-known place to spend the day or just a couple of hours. Just a little over 1 hour from Carson City. They have dressing rooms and shower. There is also a drinking fountain with filtered water.
