This is a hot spring experience unlike any other. We have visited about five times over the years, usually traveling with our kids. You have the springs to yourself when reserving your hour, so opting out of clothing appeals to even the most reserved bather....More

First of all if you want to travel and soak up to the bath house. Make sure to to call ahead and make reservations. (The town is called Manley Hot Springs) to get to the spring you'll have to cross the bridge, follow sign, pass...More

One more secret place that is worth all the effort to get there. We have been to many hot springs pools and resorts all over the place, and this quiet place of extremes, hot water and frozen permafrost 10 feet away, is one place I...More

This place is great to visit when it is -35 below. Sit out in the hot pool and soak, such a nice relaxing time. Had burgers in the restaurant after, good food, fresh.

We LOVED the Manley Hot Springs (the owner, Agnes, is so very sweet), but beware of the road to get there. It's 80 miles of the roughest gravel and shale - way worse than the Dalton Highway! Nearly everywhere we talked to got at least...More

We didn't know you had to call ahead to the lady that owns the Springs and request a time to go. We were there for two days and she seems miffed that we would make a request to go to her springs. She doesn't have...More
