Around Us


Fish Lake Valley Hot Springs – Discovered in 1970 by an oil-exploration well, the hot water at Fish Lake Valley has been an excellent place to bathe ever since. The large-volume hot water well is piped into a large concrete pool. The pool is about 7 feet by 6 feet and about 3 feet deep. Water temperature is approximately 105 degrees F in the tub, overflowing into several lukewarm ponds. Bristlecone-2_AroundUsHot Springs Review on
