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 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.

Every person in party must have proof with local ID or current local pay stub with verifying ID - be prepared to show it to the check-in staff upon arrival. Without your local ID or current local pay stub, you will not be allowed in at this time. Not permitted at this time: property taxes, lease agreements, utility bills, car registration or insurance, HOA dues, other forms of proof. Please understand that this is our policy due to COVID-19, and the check-in staff is bound by the rules set by the Board of Directors of Astoria Park Conservancy.

What precautions does Astoria take to make sure locals are safe?

Astoria follows all CDC guidelines, state restrictions and local ordinances. A regular disinfecting and cleaning process is implemented. Staff and patrons are required to social distance and wear face coverings whenever not actively swimming in the pools. Check back often for updated COVID information.

Ideally. It's easy to make a reservation online.

Are walk-in reservations possible?

Walk-in reservations are highly discouraged. Walk-ins may be turned away if Astoria is at maximum capacity.

How many patrons does Astoria allow at one time?

70 patrons maximum will be allowed entry during each time slot. A 30-minute break between groups gives staff time to disinfect the changing rooms, lounge chairs and other public spaces.

How much time is the purchase of a Pool Pass good for?

During COVID-19, a Pool Pass at Astoria is good for a specific time slot. The Picnic Pavilion is also available to rent during the same time slots.

How can you be prepared?

Show up ready to swim! The changing rooms are very limited with a limited COVID-19 capacity at this time. There are cubbies inside and outside but no lockers available. We suggest leaving valuables at home or in your car. We plan to rent towels in the future, but do not at this time. We do have towels for sale if you forget yours.

What can you expect upon arrival?

A maximum of two (2) parties can enter the Welcome Center at a time for check-in. Please make sure a waiver has been signed for each person in your party. Face coverings are required at all times when not actively swimming in the pools.

How can you help keep staff and other patrons safe?

Maintain social distancing (6 feet apart) at all times including when you are in line to check-in, on the pool decks, in the pools, in the Welcome Center, and in the changing rooms. Most importantly! If you do not feel 100% and have a headache, a scratchy throat or feel slightly under the weather, please do not enter Astoria Hot Springs.

Where can oversized vehicles park?

Vehicles that must ALWAYS park in Astoria's overflow parking lot include RVs and vehicles with trailers, boats and campers. Follow the signs on property. This overflow parking lot is available for every vehicle if the main hot springs lot is full.

Are dogs allowed at Astoria?

Dogs are not allowed at Astoria anywhere on the premises including the parking lot. Because this is a wildlife corridor, dogs must be inside your vehicle before, during and after your soak if they are with you. Please exit the property's parking area before you let them out to use the bathroom. Please leave your dog at home if you are concerned about heat or the cold.

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
Are the pools be 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 should I wear and not wear to soak?

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. 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 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.
