Vichy Springs, located near Ukiah, California is home to the only warm and carbonated mineral pool in North America. Vichy is the oldest spa in California opening in 1854. 

Upon entering the resort, there is a 50m pool for soaking that is solar-heated and kept at a moderate temperature. Continue past the pool on a short walk to reach the Champagne springs containing lithium, sodium, calcium, magnesium, and potassium, The water for these springs comes from 6-miles below the ground, similar to the ones Julius Caesar discovered in Vichy, France.

Clothing at the pools is mandatory for all shared spaces. 

For day use, there is a $35 fee per person. If you're an overnight guest at the resort, the pools are included. 

The pools are open 9am-5pm for day-use guests and 24 hours for overnighters. The property is open year-round, but usually a little less crowded during the shoulder season months.
