This free use hot spring, located near Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, is great for animal lovers.
Close to the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge and the Steens Mountains, this is a great spot for wildlife spotting, although it is also little buggy. A short hike will lead you to this secluded hot spring. The temperature is less than 100, and there is no use fee.
