About Green Canyon Hot Springs

Originally known as Pincock Hot Springs, this natural wonder was first established in 1903, though it was undoubtedly in use well before then. The first facility was located up the hill to the east of the current location in Newdale. However, it was in the 1950s when the Neibaur Family took over and relocated the springs to the bottom of the canyon, creating the charming and inviting space that exists today.

As you approach Green Canyon Hot Springs, you’ll be greeted by the warm and welcoming atmosphere that has made it a beloved destination for families, church groups, and vacationers alike. The main draw, of course, is the therapeutic hot spring pools, which are geothermally heated to perfection.

Green Canyon Hot Springs is home to several pools, each heated to different temperatures. The big pool is maintained at a constant 96 degrees Fahrenheit, providing the ideal temperature for a relaxing soak. But for those seeking an extra dose of warmth, the outdoor hot pool awaits, offering a toasty 105 degrees Fahrenheit. Imagine immersing yourself in these soothing waters, letting the stress and tension melt away as the heat envelops your body. After a long day of hunting, a dip in this warm pool does wonders.
