McCredie Hot Springs Near Oakridge in Oregon

Located 50 miles southeast of Eugene and 8 miles east of Oakridge, McCredie Hot Springs features several hot spring fed pools adjacent to the Willamette Pass Highway on both sides of Salt Creek. There are typically 2-4 shallow and wide, rock-walled and silt-bottomed pools optimal for soaking during a given visit based on the season.

Pool temperatures are well known to fluctuate, be careful and consider using a thermometer before jumping in!

From 1914 to 1958, McCredie was the former site of a resort, baseball team and bordello. McCredie lies within the boundaries of the Willamette National Forest along the north and south banks of Salt Creek (a Willamette River tributary).

There is a small paved parking lot and restroom on-site. McCredie hot springs are free to visit and are day use only. Clothing is optional and nighttime closure is enforced.
