Bog Hot Springs is a delightful destination of the sagebrush Nevada landscape nestled between the Pueblo Mountains and Steens Mountain. The geothermal wonder hidden in a very remote and isolated region provides a unique soaking experience. Because of the water origin, it comes out of the source at the temperature of at least 130°F (54°C). It helps keep the entire creek warm..
Unlike many typical hot springs, Bog Hot Springs is a stream flowing within a canal into an irrigation reservoir. The springs’ water significantly cools down as it flows down, before collecting in several pools with sandy bottoms, where you can enjoy soaking with a comfortable temperature.
The largest pool was created by a small man-made dam. Its temperature varies depending on weather conditions. In June, it was 110°F (43°C) - too hot for soaking. The water is extremely clean, freshened constantly by a strong flow from the source.
A few bite cases of red spider mites (RMS) at Bog Hot Springs were reported. If bitten by RMS, apply ant-itch cream.
There is no service around Bog Hot Springs. Despite the hot springs is a remote destination, this location is becoming more popular.
Though the area is privately owned, the hot springs are open for free soaking. Please keep this place clean, pack out all your trash.
