I thought it might be nice to create a list of places that are RV friendly with hot springs either at the place or close by.

I'll start by listing a place we stayed at several years ago. The hot spring pools were great, and if you're so inclined there's another hot springs up the road a bit. It's kind of hidden along the banks of the McKinzie River and is considered a swim suit optional place.

Here's the link to Belknap Hot Springs.

We have several in this area of the California Central Coast. It is called the California Central Coast because it is half way between Los Angelus, CA and San Francisco, CA. It is 200 miles south of San Francisco and 200 miles north of LA.

Avila Hot Springs is an easy bike ride to the beach. It is owned by Sycamore Hot Springs just up the road.

Avila Hot Springs has RV parking, Hot tubs and a heated swimming pool. Very spendy at $45 per night but stays booked.

Lliard Hot Springs in Northern BC are well worth seeing! They're very natural and beautiful. Since they're in a provincial campground the price per night is reasonable.

115 miles east of San Diego you will find Agua Caliente County Park. There is a campground there - but I've never had the pleasure to stay.

An hour east of Portland, Oregon...up the Gorge! and across the Columbia River is:
Quote:
[b]Carson Mineral Hot Springs Resort
Preview: A sleepy Victorian-era hotel and bathhouse that features a regimen of therapeutic hot mineral baths reminiscent of old European spas. If youíre looking for a luxurious spa treatment with elegantly furnished rooms, then Carson Mineral Hot Springs Resort isnít for you, but most visitors to this historic resort fall in love with the creaky Victorian-era hotel and the quirky hospital atmosphere of the bathhouse. With a prescribed, almost ritualistic approach, the resort follows the old European style of taking the mineral waters. The hot springs emerge from the banks of the Wind River at 136 F and cool to around 126 F by the time they reach the bathhouse. The soaking tubs can be adjusted to any comfortable bathing temperature.
Resort This place is like taking a huge step back in time. Funky, but fun and extremely clean.

Quote:
Several Forest Service campgrounds are north of Carson off Wind River Road. Closest is Panther Creek Campground, nine miles up Wind River Rd., and 1.5 miles up Forest Service Rd. 6517. The campground is open mid-May to mid-November. Beaver Campground is 12 miles up Wind River Rd.; open mid-April through October. Paradise Creek Campground is 21 miles up Wind River Rd., and another six miles on Forest Rd. 30; it's open mid-May to mid-November. Make reservations at 518-885-3639 or 877-444-6777

[b]Wow! Thanks for this topic! My wife and I want to visit some nice state parks and National Forest campgrounds that have hot springs. This is a great way to find them!

Faywood Hot Springs - A geothermal spa resort that has several outdoor public and private soaking pools. There are separate clothing-required, clothing-optional and private bathing areas. There are also private cabins, tent sites for camping, pull through RV sites with full hook ups, travel trailers and a teepee for overnight lodging accommodations. Massage therapy, picnicking, hiking, bird watching, horseback riding and relaxing solitude also available. Building a new Visitor's Center which will have a cafe, museum and gift shop. hotsprings@faywood.com Located on HWY 61, 2 miles east of the intersection of HWY 61 and HWY 180. This is between Deming and Silver City, NM (505) 536-9663 Small Fee

Also a NM state park is about a mile or so away, City of Rocks State Park.
Back in the late '70's a ranger told us about the hot springs, it was just some pools and one could soak in them, no fee, no one around. But it has been expanded since then, it was in ruins from it's former hay day in the late 1880's in the '70's. They are trying to come back.

Other New Mexico hot springs can be found at this NMSU and The Rural Economic Development Through Tourism site:

http://www.redtt.org/html/HotSprings.html

There are many hot springs found in the national forests in NM but one should use care in them:
Notes on Meningitis - A number of fatalities have occurred nation-wide from a rare form of meningitis caused by an amoeba (Naegleria fowleri) that inhabits warm water and soils worldwide. The organism enters the brain through the nasal passages and produces a runny nose or sore throat, severe headache and possibly death within a few days. Bathers are advised not to immerse their heads and to keep their noses out of the water.

Here's an Internet list of Oregon hot springs:

Oregon Hot Springs

A nice (small) one about an hour from our house is called the Umpqua Hot Springs.

Unhappy

Regarding Belknap Hot Springs, I'm not sure about a swimsuit optional policy. I've been there several times and have not seen any skinny dipping. Did you maybe get it mixed up with the one near there in the national forest?

Regarding Belknap Hot Springs Kathy, I reread Byron's post...he's talking about the optional swimsuit policy being for the hot springs up the road from Belknap.

If you are headed up the Alaska Highway try the Takhini Hot Springs just north of Whitehorse. There is a nice little RV park in the woods and fine developed pools. It is 20 minutes or so off the Alaska Highway but well worth it.

We're going here this summer. It should be a nice relaxing day trip after some serious hiking in the mountains.
