The state of Nevada is home to hundreds of mineral hot springs naturally heated by volcanic activity. There are plenty of hot and warm springs around the state, most of them are undeveloped or semi-developed. Some of the hot springs have been dammed up like Bog Hot Springs. Extremely hot springs (ex. Dyke Hot Springs) are channelized and then a portion of the flow is diverted into the soaking pools. The hot springs like Virgin Valley Hot Springs and Twelve Mile Hot Springs receive geothermal water directly from the sources.
Though most Nevada Hot Springs are located on public lands, there are some that are situated on private properties. Many landowners allow visitors to come and soak on their properties. Be sure to obey all posted signs, respect locked gates, pick up all trash, and leave the area better than you found it. Leave gates the way it was before you arrived.
The northern parts of Nevada are one of the most geothermally active in the state and even in the country.
The central and southern Nevada also offer soaking opportunities, primarily in primitive hot springs.
