Alkali Hot Springs
You won’t find a more primitive hot spring in Nevada other than Alkali Hot Springs. Nestled in Esmeralda County, this once upon a time resort is now more of a rundown area with the reminiscence of the natural waters. However, it is still a great hot springs to visit if you are in the area as you can relax and clear your mind for your next adventure.
There are two pools next to each other at Alkali Hot Springs where a pipe feeds the natural mineral waters into the rock formations. Although the water comes in at roughly 112 degrees, both pools tend to hover around 105. You can move the pipe if you like which will also adjust the temperature to what you prefer. Both hot springs do flow into one larger pool section that isn’t used too often as the water isn’t too warm. Because the pools are very primitive, the waters aren’t cleaned so even though they will be murky, they are still very enjoyable.
Alkali Hot Springs is clothing optional and during the early morning or late evening you may see some people soaking nude. There are also a few campsites in the area if you’d like to spend the night under the stars.
