Fisher Hot Springs – Southeastern Oregon

Fisher Hot Springs

Fisher Hot Springs provide a great secluded soaking opportunity for hot water lovers who prefer calmness and isolation. Located on the southeastern edge of Warner Valley in the high desert at 4,500 feet above sea level, this remote location offers a gorgeous view of hills, Hart Mountain, and the picturesque stretch of the valley.

The source of Fisher Hot Springs is located on the hill approximately 50 yards from a soaking tub. The extremely hot flow (154.5°F) of the thermal springs is transferred by a hose from the stream to the soaking tub. While the thermal water is transferred, it gets somewhat cooler and came to the tub with temperature about 140°F. Still very hot for soaking. Water should be diverted and allowed to cool. For these reasons, it is a common practice to leave the tub a half-empty with the turned away hose. The water in the tub will cool down and ready for next visitors.
