Hero: Willow Creek Hot Springs
small-sr Icon

Nestled miles away in the middle of southeast Oregon’s high desert, Willow Creek Hot Springs features a solitary soaking pool. Accessible by an all-season gravel and dirt road, Whitehorse Fifteen Mile, the final stretch, traverses soft dirt that becomes impassable during rain, so timing your visit is crucial.

This unique high desert oasis boasts a pool that remains nearly 102 degrees year-round. Deep and wide, it offers a rare, unspoiled retreat, with only a simple hot/cold water mortar dam marking any improvement.

There are a few dispersed campsites with pit toilets near the springs, picnic tables, and fire rings.
