Olympic National Park is a place of breathtaking beauty with more than 922,651 acres of preserved wilderness. One of the lodging options within the park is a hot springs resort featuring cabins, a riverside suite, three mineral hot springs soaking pools and one freshwater pool.
In Carson, just north of the Columbia River Gorge, unwind in the hot springs resort’s mineral therapy pool or in vintage claw-foot tubs filled with spring water, bath salts and sea moss in the 1930s bathhouse. Built in the early 1900s, it’s not about glitz and glamour but down-to-earth relaxation.
In the Cascade Mountains, roughly 25 miles east of North Bend, a hot spring emerges from inside an old mine shaft and cascades into nearby pools with progressively cooler temperatures and a cold water pool nearby for cool downs. A nonprofit owns, operates and preserves the hot springs and surrounding ancient forest ecosystem.
