Hot Springs

 Hot Springs, Belknap by J.A. Fry  
Experience the rejuvenating power of Oregon's natural hot springs as you soak in the calming mineral water. Along the McKenzie River (Hwy 126) discover Terwilliger (Cougar) Hot Springs. Six tranquil pools draw crowds of visitors year round. 

Relax at the Belknap Hot Springs Resort. This manicured retreat offers two spring-fed swimming pools complete with the spa environment, gardens and hiking paths, dining and overnight lodging from RV and campsites to lodge rooms and private cabins. Day-trippers can use the lower pool for a nominal fee. Bathing attire is required.

In the other direction of the Cascades, venture to Oakridge (Hwy 58). Just past milepost 45 are the easily accessible McCredie Hot Springs. Caution is urged as the springs can be very hot, even when there is snow.  Relax in the shallow water, as Salt Creek rushes by on its way to the Willamette River.
