Since it’s part of the entire Olympic National Park & Forest, you will have the opportunity to explore the whole park’s diverse activity offerings. It’s best to plan ahead if you’re trying to visit, so you don’t get overwhelmed when you get there. You can check the park’s website for sample itineraries.

Hot Springs Pools

As for the top destination in the park, Sol Duc Hot Springs features three mineral soaking pools and a freshwater pool. The water is known to be rich in nutrients because of natural flow and cycle. It’s said that the pools are filled from rainwater and melting snow that made their way through the sedimentary rock formations around the pools. This journey highlights the gasses and minerals that were brought by the water from the surrounding volcanic rocks.

The deepest one is the Small Mineral Wading Pool – about 6-8″. The pool has an average temperature of 99 degrees.

The Medium Mineral Pool and the Large Mineral Fountain Pool are both 3′ deep and are only available for ages 4 and up. These pools are hotter, with an average temperature of 101 to 104 degrees.

For those who are looking for a refreshing swim, the Freshwater Pool is 3′ deep and is available for all ages.

Make sure to schedule your soak because the management closes down the hot springs twice a day to test the water. They call it the “resting period.”


Sol Duc Hot Springs has an RV & campground that are open Mar 23 to Oct 28. Primitive camping is available during the offseason.

If you want a more comfortable stay, Sol Duc also has cabins. It’s the perfect way for the family to enjoy the Olympic Peninsula. Cabins have full amenities from the kitchen, to the bedrooms.

The cabins are only available from Mar 22 to Oct 27.
