A part of the Oregon’s identity, natural hot springs are created as the result of volcanic and hydrothermal activities. The hot springs are found in the Cascade Mountains, Southern Oregon, and the high deserts of Eastern Oregon.
Most hot springs located on BLM land or in National Forests are undeveloped and free of charge; some of the destinations charge minimal entry fees, while others have been commercialized.
There are a few commercial hot springs in Oregon from rustic to luxury. If you prefer a comfortable rustic style in the midst of nature, the best options are Crystal Crane Hot Springs, Summer Lake Hot Springs, Hunters Hot Springs, and Grande Hot Springs.
Lithia Springs Resort in Ashland is the only spa resort in Oregon offering luxury spa amenities.
