Very busy. Easy to find. cheap. Worth doing just to say you have done it. Parking plentiful down the road.

The view of the sky on a clear night is nice however it isn’t the prettiest hot springs I’ve ever visited. Like a large hot tub with lots of people. The lockers are annoying, beware you can only use that token once!

It is super hot in the water but it was very worth it. After a day of hiking it is a great place to go relax.

We were there in the afternoon, it was busier than if you went in the morning but nothing unreasonable. The evening is supposed to be good as it gets dusk/dark.
