How on earth could anyone

How on earth could anyone think to own this? Did you make the Earth? Enjoy it, and if you want to build something, please share it, especially if it is on top of such a rare and beautiful thing as a spring.

I had a strange experience

I had a strange experience here that was probably not normal. I was approached in the parking lot by a guy who claimed to need money. At the tub, there was a tweeked man dressed in SM biker gear just standing there tweeked. We left after 5 minutes. The place looked like it was cared for. The whole area looked nice. The pool is a big tub down by the edge of a river.

Good information, nice

Good information, nice video.It's nice to see people enjoying themselves and still being respectful of the property. We have opened the hot springs again after a two year closure. It's on a trial basis and there are a few rules that need to be adhered to. No dogs, no glass,no smoking or alcohol. You must check in at the RV Park office and get the plugs. It's $5 a person for a couple of hours.Return the plugs when finished. You park in the RV Park and walk through the gate down the trail. Please do not climb down the rocks off the highway. This is trespassing and trespassers will be prosecuted. The hot springs are open from 7am until 10pm. To stay at the RV Park is $25 a night and that includes use of the hot springs.The hot springs can be reserved for private parties for $75 a day.As long as people continue to be respectful, the hot springs will be available but if it goes back to what prompted the closing it will be closed permanently. The tubs will be removed. Please spread the word. Hope this clears up a lot of the misinformation that has been circulating, thanks, Rocki
