Hot Spring Description

Hot Spring Description

Contributor

Keough’s Hot Springs is a classic hot springs and camping resort. Two fresh mineral water pools with different temperatures are available. There are dressing rooms and showers for campers and day guests, and you'll also find some beautiful picnic areas. The pools are cleaned once a week, and there is always a fresh flow of clean water. Also, there is a small restaurant and snack bar here if you didn't bring food or don't want to cook.

The pool has a long history of people using its geothermal hot springs for medicinal and healing purposes for over a century. Keough’s was a bustling health and leisure resort in the 1920s and 1930s. Since then, the hot springs has always served as a place for holiday and special event gathering for the Owens River Valley and surrounding communities. If you just want to stop by to heal your aches in the mineral water after a hike in the Sierra Nevada, or if you want to camp overnight and enjoy multiple dips, Keough’s is a perfect and quaint hot springs resort.
