Leisure Pool

The Leisure Pool is the largest of our five pools. 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

The Children’s Pool is 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 great 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.

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.

Driving Directions

Visiting FAQs

Full COVID-19 Procedures and FAQs are outlined here. Please review these in detail prior to your visit.

Do I need to buy my ticket in advance?

Yes. With a maximum capacity of 70 for each session and all visitors welcome, booking in advance is highly recommended. Tickets do often sell out, so walk-ins are discouraged.

Group form
Do I have to buy a ticket if I’m not going to swim?

Yes. Purchasing a ticket gives you access to the entire pool area including the Picnic Pavilion as well as the poolside chairs, tables and lawns.

What should I wear while I soak?

Bathing suits and/or swimming attire is required. Natural hot springs minerals are not known to damage bathing suits any differently than chlorine or regular wear does.

Consider removing your silver jewelry before soaking. If you don’t, don’t worry. Simply use a polishing cloth.

What should I bring with me for a soak?

Towel and Bathing Suit

Please bring your own towel and bathing suit. If you are in need of a towel, we do rent basic white ones and have a nicer option for purchase. We do not sell bathing suits. You might try local businesses like Headwall Sports, Teton Mountaineering or Skinny Skis in Jackson if you would like to buy one. There is also an REI, Target and TJ Maxx in town.

Shoes

The walking paths are half paved and half dirt/gravel. Please bring flip-flops or some kind of shoe for walking between pools.

Snacks

You are welcome to bring your own outside food, but no food is allowed within ten (10) feet of the pools. Please use the tables and chairs to enjoy your refreshments. Tables and chairs are limited in the colder months.

We do sell light snacks and beverages at the Snack Shack along with a selection of retail items including hats, tees, hoodies and water bottles.

Refillable Water Bottle

There is a filling station in the Welcome Center, so we encourage you to bring your own water bottles. Hydration is important.

Outside alcohol is prohibited.

Please do not put Astoria staff in the position to ask you to leave because you brought your own alcohol. You are welcome to bring your own non-alcoholic beverages, but no glass (bottles or serving dishes) is allowed on site. We do sell craft and domestic beer and hard seltzers. We also have light snacks and non-alcoholic beverages for sale at the Snack Shack.

Are dogs allowed at Astoria?

No – dogs are not allowed at Astoria. This includes inside cars and parking areas. This is due to a county ordinance because of the sensitive wildlife areas at Astoria Park. If you must have your dog with you in the car, please understand that they are not allowed to exit the car until you are on the other side of the red bridge, highway-side. Please help us spread the word!

Where can oversized vehicles park?

RVs, all trailers, boats and campers MUST park in Astoria’s overflow parking lot. Follow signs on the property.

This overflow parking lot is available for other vehicles if the main hot springs lot is full.

Are advance reservations required?

They are highly recommended. With a maximum capacity for each session and all visitors welcome, booking in advance is required. It’s easy to make a reservation online!

Soaking FAQs

Are Astoria’s pools fed by natural hot springs?

Yes! Astoria’s pools are all fed by 100% natural hot springs.

Ecology
Are the pools chlorinated?

Astoria’s soaking pools are designed in a flow-through system, which allows our pools to be free of chlorine. The only exception is the Children’s Pool which has small, safe amounts of chlorine added. This pool is on a closed loop, chlorine-filtration system that neutralizes any water being reintroduced into the Snake River. All water that enters the Snake River is chemical-free.

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
Can I wear sunscreen in the hot springs?

Showering before entering the pool area is 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.

During COVID-19, please arrive ready to swim, as the changing rooms will have a very limited capacity.
