The small, 2-4 person sand and gravel pool at Bigelow (Deer Creek) Hot Springs is located near Highway 126 and is close to 60 miles from Eugene.

Nestled in the northern bank of McKenzie River, Bigelow is typically 102-104 during summer and fall. Winter conditions often result in a pool that is too cool for school (soaking).

Consider yourself lucky if you are able to enjoy Bigelow during the core summer season. Clothing is most definitely optional
