TOP 10 HOT SPRINGS IN WASHINGTON
Washington isn't necessarily known for the abundance of hot springs resorts, but the Pacific northwest has some gems that are must-visits. In fact, there are so few of options in Washington that our "top ten" list became a "top nine" list with the closing of Bonneville Hot Springs. The top nine list ranges from a 2-person pool only accessible by hiking through the woods (Sulphur Creek) to full resorts and spas. Interestingly, about half of the hot springs on our list are undeveloped and lacking in any amenities, while the other half are resort destinations. Washington hot springs offer peace, relaxation, and recovery after playing outdoors.

GAMMA HOT SPRINGS

Unlike some of the other destinations on our list, Gamma Hot Springs isn't a resort (at all). This is simply a bath that is deep in the Glacier Peak Wilderness. It is only accessible by a challenging hike.

8.
SCENIC HOT SPRINGS

Scenic Hot Springs is more legend than anything else. The hot springs has quite a history as it was initially a destination for railroad workers in the 1800s but more recently abused as a party location that travelers would sneak onto (along with drugs and alcohol). Today, the springs is privately owned and being revived. You must request a permit to visit.

7.
SULPHUR CREEK HOT SPRINGS

Sulphur Creek is your reward at the end of a fairly difficult hike. Soak in the 2-person pool while viewing the old growth forest. Very few people have discovered this hidden spot.

6.
OLYMPIC HOT SPRINGS (PORT ANGELES)

Olympic Hot Springs is located in Olympic National Park, and accessible by a moderate 2.5 mile hike (each way). The area includes seven pools that greatly vary in temperature. It is a very authentic experience and much less developed than Sol Duc. Depending on your tastes, you may like (or not) the fact that you may run into some nudity.

5.
BAKER HOT SPRINGS

Baker Hot Springs are located on Mount Baker (shocking, huh?). The hot springs include two natural pools. The most important thing to know about Baker Hot Springs is that it is beautifully natural with no amenities.

4.
SOL DUC HOT SPRINGS (PORT ANGELES)

Sol Duc celebrated its 100th birthday in 2012. The resort is a great place to stay for those visiting Olympic National Park. Fair warning... some love it and some hate it, but the accommodations are intentionally simplistic, with no telephones, TVs, radios, or wifi in the cabins.

3.
CARSON HOT SPRINGS (CARSON)

Carson Hot Springs includes a historical hotel that dates back to 1901. The resort is in Southern Washington, about an hour east of Portland, in the Columbia River Gorge. Some rooms feature hot tubs on the balconies.

2.
DOE BAY HOT SPRINGS RESORT (ORCAS ISLAND)

Doe Bay is a resort on Orcas Island with lodging (cabins, campsites), spa, and the hot springs saunas. If you want to explore even more unique lodging options, you can opt for staying in a yurt or their treehouse.

1.
GOLDMYER HOT SPRINGS (NORTH BEND)

Goldmyer is a Washington treasure. Goldmyer is located in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains, about 25 miles northeast of North Bend. The springs are maintained by volunteers, so this isn't a 5-star resort, but what it lacks in amenities, it makes up for in natural beauty.

Goldmyer is only accessible via 5 mile hike (each way). The hike is part of the experience as it is through wilderness. Once you reach the springs, you will find several pools and a hot cave.
