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.

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.

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 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.
