The Hot Spring:
Crystal Crane Hot Springs is a pay-for rustic resort on 160 acres with camping, RV hookups, and geothermally heated cabins for rent. Historically there was hot water seeping from the ground at this location but today the hot water is from two artesian wells, and a cold water well. A large outdoor pond is filled with a constant flow (no chemical treatment needed) from all of these wells keeping a temperature of 97 to 103 degrees depending on air temperature and wind conditions. Several (6 total but some are closed sometimes) private reservation only indoor wooden soaking tubs are in the building adjacent to the outdoor pond, along with the bathrooms and changing rooms. Hot and cold water is piped to each tub so any temperature can be created, and the tubs are cleaned every day.
