The Hot Spring:
Bog Hot Spring is a collection of several hot springs into a man made ditch that leads to the irrigation pond at Bog Hot Springs Ranch. Hot water emerges at around 122 degrees F from several springs that all collect in the man made ditch. Where the water in the ditch/creek is around 105 degrees F several dams have been built forming soaking ponds. The temperature varies depending on ambient air conditions but you can always find your desired temperature by moving up or down the river. The ponds are sand bottomed and sand sided which is nice and comfortable on the feet.
The Bog seems to be very well known, where every soaker that knows Nevada or Oregon loves this place and thinks its a special gem. The hot creek with good flow in a high dessert is rare and unique and offers a really good soak. Despite how well known Bot Hot is generally you can have it all to yourself. One exception is that it is popular on Memorial Day weekend, with over five groups of campers and even a couple airplanes. In some places five groups is considered a small amount of people, but up in the high dessert of Northern Nevada that is a large amount of people.
