Seasonal Notes
Unless you have a monster truck - don't expect to be able to reach the hot springs during winter or heavy rain conditions. The road turns into muck-pots in rain and may be washed out as you get closer to the hot springs as a creek runs through it. 4x4 Recommended except during the dry, warm months.
Camping Notes
There are a few primitive sites available near the hot springs.


My 2nd attempt at Prince Albert was cut fairly short. The 1st time I was here I made it all the way out to where the road deteriorates into a creek. I stepped out of my truck and "CRUNCH" - the entire ground was covered with crickets! Hundreds of thousands of crickets; in some places bubbling out of the ground like a spring. After some light exploration I gave up, mostly because of the cricket festival - I didn't want to impact any sort of mating, breeding or migration.

This time, the soft, muddy roads gave way to slow driving and led to an impassable water-over-road situation (see pic above). Plus, the road only gets worse from this point. I'll try again, but next time during the dry season.

No Soap, Shampoo or BIO-Soap/Shampoo Allowed in Hot Springs! Avoid Being Fined!

Public hot springs are not bathing facilities and do not have 'plumbing' like that of commercial, improved hot springs. Soap and shampoo (including biodegradable soap and shampoo) do not completely breakdown naturally. This pollutes our water systems (ingested by fish, animals, humans) at or near the source. This is also illegal in most wilderness and public lands areas.
