McCredie Hot Springs is an easily accessible hot springs located adjacent Salt Creek in the Willamette National Forest southeast of Eugene. The hot springs are popular due to their location along the highway. Pools are accessed via a short hike to the river from the McCredie day use area. The springs feature two sets of pools, one on either side of the river. Pools range in temperature from very hot to mild, and visitors can also take a dip in Salt Creek for a dramatic change in temperature. 

Wildflowers line the southern pools in the springs and summer. The pools adjacent the river are adjusted simply by changing the arrangement of stones at the water's edge, allowing the cold creek water to mix with hot spring water.  

The small parking lot is free to use, and there is a bathroom facility for public use.
