Sol Duc Hot Springs

Interactive Washington Hot Springs Map displays the best hot springs of the Evergreen State

Though the state of Washington lies within the “Ring of Fire” that circles much of the Pacific Ocean, the Evergreen State seems surprisingly underpopulated with hot springs compared with Oregon, California, or Idaho.

The majority of hot springs are located in the northwestern part of Washington on the Olympic Peninsula and in the northern Cascades. One of two hot springs resorts in Washington, Sol Duc Hot Springs Resort is known for its great healing property.

Southwestern Washington has a few hot springs but only Carson Hot Springs Resort is open for bathing. Bonneville Hot Springs Resort was closed to the public a few years ago. Wind River Hot Springs is in hard to reach location.

There are primitive hot springs on private and public lands, some of them require long-distance hiking into the wilderness.

Here we listed two scenic places that are not true hot springs but resorts that offer relaxing hot water bathing among natural settings and beautiful sceneries. One of those places is Doe Bay Resort on Orcas Island and another is Wellsprings Spa near Mount Rainer.

In addition to the hot springs, Washington owns a unique mineral-rich Soup Lake near the town of Ephrata.
