The Hot Spring:

This spring is very cool, comming out with temps around 135 degrees f. it pours madly down the bed rock and showers into several pools that line the river, each  pool definately has something for everyone with temp from lobster hot to just warm and awesome showers splash you as you soak. the  river is really deep right by the springs and is great for a cold plunge or canon balls, or just chilling, swim suits are a must and should be worn due to the high numbert of visitors and the fact that it's located at a campground and have rules to abide by.
