No Soap or Shampoo!
Public hot springs in California are not bathing facilities and do not have ‘plumbing’ like that of commercial, improved hot springs.
Soap and shampoo (including bio soap and shampoo) do not breakdown naturally and pollute our fragile ecosystems.
FYI, this is also illegal in most wilderness and public lands areas. Please report suspicious activity to public lands officials.
Leave No Trace
It is important to remember when visiting hot springs in California or any state to leave them in better shape than when you arrived.
