I stopped here about 10 years ago, before it was in Lonely Planet. Beautiful place but kind of crowded these days. And really, do you bathe with your dogs at home?

The hotsprings are a really nice place to chill with friends and meet new people. It's not difficult to find and every hotspring has a different temperature. Just go and enjoy.

We first went here in about 2000 and it was more undeveloped than it is now. Now they have a toilet, a real parking area and some of the soaking places have indications of frequent use. The formations made by the mineral water are interesting...More

It's definitly a good time. Kids are welcome, just be sure to bring some water in case the weather gets too hot. Also be advised that some time some people like to enjoy their bathing nude.

Hey, sorry for not coming back to you sooner! They're outside down a dirt road so yes, path might not be accessible if there's heavy rain or snow but otherwise it's just public land.
