Hot Spring Description

Hot Spring Description

Dry Suzie hot spring, also called Greenhorn Hot Spring, is a gamble of a soaking experience at the end of a very rough dirt road near the town of Carlin, Nevada.

The spring emerges in a patch of reeds and cools as it flows down a small creek and eventually through a pipe that carries it to the tub. Over the years this tub has varied from a cattle trough to a bathtub, and it is currently a large jacuzzi tub. Other reports have mentioned visits where the tub is shot full of bullet holes and in an unsoakable state. 

Water temperatures vary from extremely hot at the source to about 102 in the tub, and the ability to adjust inflow has varied with the tub situation. Algae accumulation in the tub and a slight sulfurous odor are also present.

The spring is located in a BLM riparian restoration area, and visitors must pass through a gate that should be closed behind them. The setting is not particularly scenic. The very rough access road (a high-clearance vehicle is suggested, though even four-wheel drive vehicles are questionable in the muddy conditions following wet weather) makes a visit to Dry Suzie a bit of a gamble. Most of the older tubs lay shot up beside the dirt road now. There are no facilities at this hot springs.
