I love Lava Hot Springs! Simply put! But all in all great experience, I grew up coming here but hadn’t been in years. The vast hot pool selection is set underneath a beautiful rock wall back drop with pools ranging from 100°-112°. It’s definitely a great destination for a getaway or pit stop during road trip, set right next to a cute little town scape.
Gorgeous soak. Mina, Trip Advisor
Although it was busy, shoulder season is the perfect time to go. Everyone spread out in the pools and I didn't feel packed. All are respectful of your space.
