Eagleville Hot Springs, also known as Squaw Bath, is in the beautiful Tricorner Region of Surprise Valley. There are primitive pools close to the road, although they are hard to see from a vehicle.
This area is where the borders of Oregon, California, and Nevada all meet. Near this location, there are two hot springs within a quarter of a mile of each other, Wild Mind Hot Spring and Eagleville Hot Springs. Eagleville Hot Springs is on private land, but tourists can still soak there. Wild Mint Hot Spring, on the other hand, is now blocked off with a “Do Not Trespass” sign.
Natural Hot Springs
Eagleville Hot Springs consists of two separate thermal baths with rock walls and gravel bottoms and is surrounded by mint plants that have grown wild. The two pools, with an average temperature of 103 °F, are heated by water that flows from the natural hot spring and emerges from the earth at a temperature of 120 °F.
The bigger soaking pool has some foot traffic in the evenings and on weekends, but visitors will still probably have the place to themselves when visiting. The water in the smaller pool underneath the bigger one is much colder and less desirable.
The depth of the water is around 2 feet, and it is clean and transparent. The surrounding Surprise Valley can be seen in its entirety. Using the water without clothing is a typical local practice.
