Kah-Nee-Ta Resort & Spa Has Closed to Public

Kah-Nee-Ta is the unique name given to one of the most attractive getaway destinations, and among the most significant hot springs in Central Oregon. Located 100 miles southeast of Portland, Kahneeta Hot Springs Resort & Spa adds a tone of luxury to the high desert region.

What makes Kahneeta Hot Springs such an attractive spot for hot spring lovers? Well, besides being among the highly accessible hot springs in Oregon, its beautiful landscape with colorful hills inserted in the middle of a desert is almost too exotic to be real.

Today, Kahneeta Hot Springs is renowned for a distinctive tribal identity in both art and culture. This identity has witnessed a gradual and yet increasingly appealing transformation of otherwise remote desert geography, to be a welcoming outdoor location. The mineral water pools at Kah-Nee-Ta, add a dose of fun to outdoor camping geography punctuated by spas and casinos, as well as the-now-popular Kah-Nee-Ta brand of tepees.

  1. My family has enjoyed an annual camping trip to Kah-nee-tah every year for the past 35 years. We were there last September when they closed. They indicated at that time they were in hopes of opening the pool this summer. The phone number I have is not working so I thought I would reach out to see if there was any chance the RV and pool was available for rent this summer of 2019? If so, how do you get in touch with someone?
