-- love those hot springs ideas! thanks. Here is a couple.

Great to hear a mention of Belknap above. We trailer at Belknap (Oregon) several x's a year and love it, too. Great gardens at Belknap and a wonderful hike to hand lake just up the road on 242. ($$20ish)

Crane hot springs near burns, oregon is worth a trip. it's a hot spring lake on private land that offers trailer hook ups, tent sites and small cabins. Great birding during spring & fall right from the hot spring lake. book ahead.($12ish) www.cranehotspings.com

A commercial spot we love is Kah-Nee-Ta, near madras, oregon in the high desert. Full hook-up RV sites ($$$45ish a night). They offer two very large hot spring swimming pools. One offers a big slide which is great fun, even for adults. Kah-Nee-Ta is a resort offering a wonderful dinner house with a full view of the desert ($$-$$$). Casino, too. In fact, they run shuttles from the rv sites to the casino every 15 minutes. We stayed there last fall for 4 days during the middle of the week and had the RV park almost to ourselves.

See you at a hot spring somewhere!

Someother hot springs: In Jasper Nat'l Park Alberta, the Miette Hot Springs Jasper National Park of Canada we enjoyed it.

Hot Springs State Park in Thermopolis, WY has The State Bath House. In 1896 a treaty was signed with the Shoshone and the Arapaho which gave the public use of the largest mineral hot springs in the world. The hot springs was known as having "healing water." There is no fee for using the Bath House; however, there is a nominal charge for rental of towels and swimsuits. The hot mineral water is maintained at 104 degrees Fahrenheit to provide the safest healing water possible. A time limit of 30 minutes is set for the soaking time for safety reasons.

Both of these were swiming pools to soak in, in Jasper they had a cold water pool to jump into after warming up.

Both really neat places.

I love the springs in Florida. There are so many great first magnitude springs in Florida that I can't choose a favorite. Ichetucknee is great. The most fun I think I've had swimming in a Florida spring is Salt Spring. Juniper Springs is good. Silver Glen Springs. The Silver River and Silver Springs. There are hundreds of great springs in Florida.

Alamosa Colorado has a hot spring pool that my granddaughter and I visited a couple of weeks ago (mid-March), for our first trip in the new egg. The pool is grand, loads of kids, various temperatures. I don't recommend their camping facility - it's just a small gravel parking lot with hookups. Instead head on up to Salida (which also has a hot spring pool) and camp in one of the state campsites along the Arkansas River. No hookups, but absolutely gorgeous, right on the river, about 5 miles from the highway.

I'll attach pics later once I figure out how.....

Sol Duc Hot Springs in Olympic National Park has a campground. The Hot Springs are run by a NPS concessionare. It is a short drive off of Hwy 101 just west of Lake Crescent.

Another option is Olympic Hot Springs which is a day hike destination with two OMP campgrounds close by; Elwha and Altaire. This is a clothing optional area used by the local residents of Clallum, Jefferson and Kitsap Counties. It is a short drive off of Hwy 101 just east of Lake Crescent and west of Port Angeles.

We have done the hot springs tour a few times in the Kootenay's, BC. Try:

1. Halcyon Hot Spring (just south of Revelstoke), RV camping available. Our favorite!

2. Nakusp Hot Springs (Between Nelson & Revelstoke), RV camping also available;

3. Ainsworth Hot Springs (Just outside Nelson, BC). No RV camping on site but Kokanee Creek Provincial Campground is close. Try the caves, they're wonderful!

4. Fairmont Hot Springs (North of Cranbrook, BC). RV camping is available. Check out the falls and Indian baths.

5. Radium Hot Springs (In Kootenay National Park). No RV camping available but Redstreak National Campground is close. Watch the Bighorn sheep on the cliffs above.

If you want a non-commercial hot springs try Lussier Hot Springs in Whiteswan Provincial Park, just south of Canal Flats, BC.

But by far the best hot springs we visited were Meager Creek Hot Spring, out of Pemberton, BC. They are a non-commercial hot springs but very well maintained. Since we were there a few years ago, the Meager Creek Bridge was washed out and I'm not sure it's been repaired. Check with Forest Service as they maintain the road in and out. There is also a small forest service campground nearby (pack water in and garbage out).

We've had a great time exploring alot of the hot springs in BC, it always makes for a relaxing holiday!

Haven't seen any Grizzlies, only black bears and brown bears. There are lots of sitings of bears and at Moose Lake (close to Lussier Hot Springs) you couldn't camp in a tent because of bears in the area. A little daunting especially when you are the only people in the campground and decide to BBQ chicken for dinner! Luckily we were in a camper at the time! In all our adventures, we haven't had any bear problems!

We were in a tent in Lliard and there were lots of bears around, but none that bothered us. I agree when you are the only ones in a tent it can be a little nerve wracking.

Since Pemberton BC is mentioned I would add the Skookumchuck hot springs. We went there some years ago.

Just fyi, Llaird hotsprings, mentioned at the top of this string, had a bear attack (I think it was a grizzly?) a few yrs ago, the person was killed there. Lots of people go and never get even a sight of a bear, but just an fyi....

There is Hot Springs Arkansas which has ........hot springs! There is a state park north of town and a national forest and beautiful lake west of town. It's a very historic town built around the springs.

Hi, I just wanted to add that there's a really great day hike from the parking lot at Miette, the Sulphur Skyline trail. Here's a link to a detailed description: http://www.trailpeak.com/index.jsp?cat=hik...ail&val=498

It only takes a few hours round trip, and it gets you into the alpine, which is fun if you are an east coaster like me and not in the kind of shape normally required to hike another 10,000 feet to get above treeline.
