Boy I feel old. I used to come here while in college so much I nearly lived there. Back when you could camp in the area, across the river was an awesome spot during the summer. There was only one pool back in the day. Unfortunately, the influx of people into Oregon and the Internet has overwhelmed the water's capacity (the time it takes to refresh the pools). That's not great. It's really a place, even with the additional pools dug out, that really would support only a handful of people at one time. So, during the peak of the summer it is probably worth avoiding. In the winter, it might still be great. Strap on some snow shoes and visit :)

I've been to plenty of hotsprings, and I was really not impressed by this one. The pools were incredibly small, and it was incredibly packed. Forcing you to bump knees and other body parts with strangers, who will likely be in their birthday suit. In addition to that, the pools have a very low input/output of water, and get dirty very quickly. Especially in busy days. I would not recommend making the drive out here. Instead i would rather find a resort style hotspring that you know is clean, and just as beautiful.

We had heard about this place, it was very interesting. The hot springs are unique as they trickle down into other pools and over the edge. It is up on a cliff, so be careful. It is a bit of a hike to get to it, something you have to see! Be prepared, people do sit in the pools in their birthday suit!

I've been to multiple hotsprings (Breitenbush, Bagby, Sol Duc, Bonneville) and this one was probably my least favorite. Sol Duc and Bonneville are like resort style where the water is pumped into manmade pools, so if you want very clean and regulated hotsprings, those places are for you. Breitenbush is a natural hot spring but is kept up beautifully by the Breitenbush Retreat, so there is no trash, garbage, smoking, etc. Umpqua Hot Springs is not well regulated or run besides the basic state park, so it mimics Bagby in that way. Umpua pools are multiple and natural made, and look over a beautiful river, so it does have absolutely amazing views. I found the pools to be a bit lukewarm for my liking, and they were a bit dirty. There were a lot of people there and there were people smoking as well as garbage around the area. It was kind of a grungy feel. Bagby mimics that feeling for sure, but at least with Bagby you can be in your own personal wooden stall and be one on one with your partner in a hollow log. If you really like hot springs I would suggest coming here to check it out. I would necessarily seek this out again in the future though just due to the garbage and the smoking. Just an FYI it does invovle a steep climb to get there.

These are pretty much in the middle of nowhere. The gravel road is very potholed, but we made it our small rental car. The short hike is not clearly marked - the trail branches a few times, but it isn't too hard to figure out. The trail to the pools is rough and steep in some areas. Once there, expect nudity and some weed smokers. (If those aren't your things, I wouldn't go.) The water is not crystal clear and might be considered to be dirty. That's to be expected for natural hot springs. We went mid-week and it was still pretty busy - 20ish people. Overall a very relaxing visit. Do try the various temperatures of the different pools.
