Featuring overnight accommodations, clothing-optional night soaks, and 24-hour access to the pools for registered visitors, this site is sure to soothe help you unwind.
Summer Lake Hot Springs features four natural springs rich in geothermally heated, mineral-rich groundwater. The temperature of the main, indoor spring is around 124°F.
A bathhouse has been constructed over the largest spring and the water temperature is regulated to hover around 113°F. The three outdoor hot springs temperatures range between 106°F and 118°F.
The water is rich in minerals, such as sodium, potassium, chlorine, and sulfur. There are additional minerals in smaller quantities, such as calcium and fluorine, that help gives this water its therapeutic properties.
The pools are available from 9 AM to 7 PM for daytime visitors, while guests who are registered are given 24-hour access. For those who prefer to soak more naturally, the pools are clothing-optional after 9 pm, but no children are allowed.
