Relax at Alvord Hot Springs

Rate this Adventure Oregon Alvord Hot Springs

Added by The Outbound Collective

A must-do hot spring, offering beautiful views of the Steens and Alvord Desert, hot, scent-free water, a wooden deck for relaxing, and isolation.

This is an all-around winner – these well-maintained, isolated hot springs are in a very scenic location near the Steens Mountains and Alvord Desert, they stay between 100-110 degrees, and have no sulfuric smell. These two pools are not over-crowded, and the $5 fee comes with access to a changing room, restroom, and gift shop. You can camp here overnight.
