Specular skies and a blissful hour of soaking for under $10…that’s what travelers to Crystal Crane Hot Springs can be sure to enjoy.
Of the many hot spring spots in Southeastern Oregon, few are actually cool enough to take a dip in. There are some scattered on the map which are all but untouched (and rarely visited), but a few have been commercialized. And in this instance, that’s code for “upgraded with amenities.”
This site has both a large outdoor pool for communal soaking, and several private, enclosed tubs. But one of the perks of this place is how it’s set up for overnight stays, with RV hook-ups, tent sites, tepees with private tubs, and cabins. Not to mention, guest status upgrades one to free Wi-Fi and coffee, use of the communal space, and access to a Camp Kitchen stocked with handy on-the-road utensils. The staff is known to be friendly.
Additional Info: The fee to use the outside hot springs is $4.50 (waived with an overnight stay) or $7.50 per person for use of the wonderful private soaking tubs. Crystal Crane Hot Springs is open year-round. Call 541.493.231, or book via their website, linked above.
