Around 15 minutes drive South of Mammoth Lakes. Last 3 miles are a gravel road that can be tough on your vehicle. Parking area has restrooms. Can view the hot springs from the car park but can go down the hill and take a closer...More
A drive along firstly paved then a dirt road brings you to Hot Creek geothermal area. Swimming is NOT allowed -the water temperature changes within 3 seconds and can reach 200 degs centigrade. However you can walk along the creek, which is a pretty oasis...More
I really enjoyed the hot creek geothermal springs. It was a short walk on blacktop from the parking lot to the springs. Or you could choose to park farther down and walk longer along the creek to the springs. I loved the steam and color...More

I feel as if I shouldn't rate something in nature as beautiful as this place as "average" here but let me give you my experience. We didn't go with high expectations because we were aware that you can't actually soak in the hot springs anymore...More

From Hwy 395, take the Hot Creek Hatchery Road that is just west of the Mammoth Airport. After about 1 mile, turn right at the brown sign directing you to the Hot Creek Fish Hatchery and Geological Site. You will drive about 3 more miles from this point. The road will be gravel soon after this turn. The Site is on the left with a nice parking lot and cinder block pit toilet buildings. The walk down is steep, but not longer than 1/4 mile. I recommend looking this up on Google Maps where you can easily find it by following the Hot Creek Hatchery Rd.
