Relax in natural and scenic hot springs along Buckeye Creek, in the Eastern Sierra Nevadas. A popular and highly rated spot.

How to Get There

11 months ago

Great detour

This is just a short drive off of the 395 and a great little stop. The hot springs are pretty unique and tucked alongside a mountain river. The rocks that form the hot springs can be rearranged to make multiple pools with different temperatures. We had a 4Runner so no problems getting there, road is pretty well graded.

Come Early In The Morning

There are a ton of nearby campgrounds. I recommend camping here and then waking up early for a soak. You're more likely to have the hot spring to yourself!

Pretty Cool But busy

My boyfriend and I went here before Valentine's Day and there were a ton of people, probably around 15. Weird since it's quite a drive off-road and a bit of a hike too. Other than that, the hot spring was large and really warm, luckily it was right off of a river so the cold water circulated in. It's a fun day trip!

Don't Come Here

It's a long a drive out a dirt road, if you don't have a good vehicle, you could lose a tire and then be stuck out here. Lots of old naked people here too.
