Pine flats is a less traveled to hotsprings destination. There are only 3 pools and two are located on the mountainside overlooking the river and the third is located down on the river (when the river is high, it washes out). It is a bit of a dangerous hike down to the last pool so not a great destination for kids. Make sure to bring headlamps if you plan to go at night.
Great place to get the perfect reviews
this camp ground has a great location, downhill from the highway, there is virtually no noise from the road, and there are hotsprings located within a half a mile from your camp ground. One of the best hot pools is located on a side of the hill that requires you to walk through the river for a short distance, which really adds to the uniqueness of this camp ground.
We visited this campground in May, before the campground host was there. It was crowded with some noisy campers not respecting the generator hours. It was kind of annoying to have to listed to a generator all night while trying to be outside! Also, the bathroom was kind of gross & ran out of toilet paper. We were prepared with extra so it didn't really matter. I imagine the atmosphere & upkeep is better when the campground host is there… Other than that, the campground is great. It's off of the road, but not too far, and therefore easy to get too. The site are spread out pretty good. It has a couple of hot springs all around it, which we didn't go into because they were really crowded and didn't seem very nice. But walking/hiking along the river was really beautiful!
I annually visit Pine Flats with great hot springs just a quick walk away. The sites are not too close to each other so if you go on a weekend you get some space away from other campers. Weekday camping does not have a lot of other campers so you can get the place to yourself.
This place is awesome, feels like a resort with the hot spring pols which is a highlight of the trip. There is campsites with fire rings and picnic tables. I saw people fishing which i think is allowed here
I go at least once a year up to this. Depending on how high the river is there are anywhere from 2 to 10 hot pools to soak in and it is the most beautiful views. Please pack trash out with you and if you see others trash help out and pick it up to keep it beautiful.
Beautiful camp ground right next to the river. And a hotsprings within yards of the camp ground. Near the road, however I've never experienced a full camp!
