Explore the Hot Springs

Leisure Pool

The Leisure Pool is the largest of the five pools here at Astoria. Approximately the same size as the former Astoria pool, the Leisure Pool is designed to allow for families, friends and groups to soak together.

Children’s Pool

Perfect for the little ones, the Children’s Pool is approximately two feet at its deepest point and lower in temperature than the other pools, to accommodate small children.

Meadow Pool

This is one of the three hot soaking pools at Astoria. This pool is ADA accessible and can be used for water therapy. It’s in the same area as the Children’s and Leisure Pools.

River Soaking Pools

The River Soaking Pools area includes the Waterfall Pool and River Pool. This area will be available for private event rental.

The Waterfall Pool provides a quiet and reflective area, with native plants offering a secluded experience for soaking. This pool offers a water source that will hit shoulders and necks to alleviate tension and stress and is named in loving memory of conservationist Luke Lynch.

The River Pool, named in loving memory of Liza Benson, is set right above the Snake River, and will offer expansive views of the river, seclusion from the rest of the pools, and hotter water for adults to soak.

Covid-19 FAQs

Will COVID-19 affect Astoria's opening?

Our construction team continues to make progress at Astoria, working in a cautious and socially distanced manner. Astoria plans to open in the Fall, pending our ability to keep staff and visitors safe. Check back here often for updated COVID information.

What precautions will Astoria take to make sure visitors are safe upon opening?

Once Astoria is open to the public we will be following all CDC guidelines, state restrictions, and local ordinances. We will also be implementing a regular disinfecting and cleaning process, and wearing PPE as well as physical distancing to ensure the safety of our visitors and staff. Check back often for updated COVID information.

Visiting FAQs

Is Astoria Hot Springs open?

Not yet. Hot Springs will open later this year. Our phase-one opening will include the Park's Welcome Center, the hot springs soaking pools, Picnic Shelter and children’s playground, riverside and park event lawns and Johnny Counts Cabin. Check back here for opening updates!

Is Astoria Park open?

The larger park is not yet open to the public, except for specific events. Planning for restoration, walking trails, and other amenities are in final stages of refinement. These phase-two improvements will be completed over the next few years and open to the public once finished. For more information or to support these efforts, visit our Astoria Park page.

Will I need to buy my ticket for the hot springs in advance?

Unless you are in an educational or non-profit group of 20 or more, you do NOT need to buy your hot springs ticket in advance. Online ticket sales will be available as our opening gets closer, and local discounted tickets will be for sale only in person at the Park's Welcome Center.

Group Form
Can I purchase a season pass?

Season passes will not be offered until 2021. During the first few months we are open, we will be selling daily entry for visitors and locals, and loyalty punch cards (with reduced per-use prices) for locals.

Buy Tickets
Will I be able to bring my own food and drinks?

Astoria visitors are welcome to bring their own food, coolers and non-alcoholic beverages. We ask that visitors keep food and beverages 10 feet away from pools.

Will Astoria sell food and drinks on site?

Yes! Visitors can find snacks and refreshments for sale, along with a select inventory of retail items.

Where will I park?

Limited, free parking is available at the hot springs. An overflow parking lot can be used if the hot springs lot is full and found by following signs at the park.

Soaking FAQs

Are Astoria’s Pools fed by natural hot springs?

Yes! Astoria’s pools are all fed by natural hot springs, with individual flows to each pool so that we are able to control temperatures to maintain comfort in each pool.

Ecology
What natural minerals are in Astoria’s Hot Springs?

Astoria’s mineral water includes magnesium, free sulfur, calcium, potassium, sodium, chloride, and alkalinity. These minerals each have been said to have specific health benefits, including reducing inflammation, soothing skin conditions, increasing oxygen levels in blood and many, many more.

Ecology
Will the pools be chlorinated?

Astoria’s soaking pools are designed in a flow-through system, which allows the majority of our pools to be free of chlorine. The Leisure Pool and Children’s Pool will have small, safe amounts of chlorine added and during cleaning, all pools will be scrubbed with a solution that includes a small amount of chlorine.

What should I wear to soak in the hot springs?

Once we are open, wear a bathing suit to soak in the hot springs. Natural hot springs minerals are not known to damage suits any differently than chlorine or regular wear does. Floating devices for small children will be allowed but regulated. Please check back here for more information about floating devices coming soon.

Can I wear sunscreen in the hot springs?

Showering before entering the pool area will be strongly advised and ensures the pools remain clean for our visitors. Once you've entered the facilities, sunscreen should be worn and it can be worn in our pools.
