Before you dive in, here a few Hot Springs etiquette tips:
- Keep Noise to a Minimum- Many people visit the hot springs to relax and reset. Be respectful of this by keeping the noise down and being aware of the people around you.
- Be Welcoming- Remember to be willing to share space in the hot springs! You may be the first one there, but hot springs are for everyone to share and enjoy.
- Leave No Trace- Make sure that everything you have brought with you, you take with you. We want to make sure to keep the hot springs clean so they can be preserved for other generations to enjoy.
- No Soap- Leave the body wash for your shower at home. Hot springs typically don’t have a way to drain, and using soap may disrupt the natural minerals in the spring.
- Don’t Pee in the Hot Springs- Remember that hot springs don’t have a way to drain, so what you leave in the springs stays in the springs.
