Oregon’s Naturally Heated Outdoor Pool Is All You Need This Winter

When temperatures drop, there’s nothing in the world like soaking in a hot spring pool. You’ll find the perfect winter getaway in eastern Oregon – just head for the Alvord Desert.

It should go without saying, but please be respectful of the property. We nearly lost the opportunity to continue to soak here, but the owners were generous enough to give us a second chance – don’t ruin it!

Are you already itching to get out there and soak in that warm water? Check out Alvord Springs’ website and Facebook page, then make plans to go soon!

On your way to the hot springs, you’ll want to stop at Fields Station Cafe, where you’ll find the best milkshake in the state!
