Hot Springs Pools

This large pool, able to fit many guests, holds over 180,000 gallons of water and flows at a rate of 540 gallons per minute. Entering the pool at 100°F and exiting at about 97°F, this spring water is a fantastic place to relax and recuperate.
Two types of camping are available at Silver Creek Plunge Resort. Sites can be reserved through the Forest Service or at their private campground. Private campsite fees are minimal for tent, trailer, or RV rentals.
There are also a variety of cabins that guests can reserve, offering one to two beds with gas stoves and cold running water. Most cabins have outside restrooms and no shower facilities. Pets are welcome for a nominal fee, but must be kept on a leash and away from the pool area. There is also a convenience store and snack bar on site.
