Grande Hot Springs - Swimming Pool

• Grande Hot Springs is fed from the largest hot springs in the world

Formerly known as Eagles Hot Lake RV Park, Grande Hot Springs Resort offers travelers the opportunity to bathe in the mineral-rich waters of Hot Lake Springs, located in the picturesque Grande Ronde Valley. The resort is situated on the east bank of Hot Lake, approximately half a mile west of the historic Hot Lake Hotel.

Prior to 1994, the resort was part of the Hot Lake property. After the property was divided into several lots, the RV Resort and Hot Lake came under different ownership. In 2020, owners of the Grande Resort purchases the Hot Lake Hotel and made great renovation.

Hot Lake is one of the largest hot springs in the world, receiving 2 million gallons of thermal groundwater daily at a temperature of 186°F (86°C).

The facility receives its water directly from Hot Lake. The geothermal water is used to heat buildings, and after mixing with well water, it is piped into pools, private soaking tubs in yurts, and showers. The 77°F well water is also mineral-rich and meets state drinking water standards.

Behind the lodge, there are public pools filled with hot water at varying temperatures. The main pool, 30 feet in diameter, maintains a temperature of 95°F. A smaller hot tub, measuring 6 by 12 feet, has a temperature of 103°F.

For those who prefer a more secluded experience, yurts with soaking tubs on private patios are available for reservation.
