Keep Hot Springs Clean and Safe for Generations to Come!
Pickup ALL trash, always pack
it in - pack it out, respect others and the land. Hot springs are a gift. Abused
hot springs are shutting down at an alarming rate.
Utilize Leave No Trace
Principles and keep all soap and shampoo at least 200 feet from any water source; hot springs, creeks, rivers, lakes, springs and reservoirs.
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.
