Everyone one should go and enjoy the springs! Unfortunately most of the community up there are uniformed about property boundaries/rights and public waterways. Highwater mark (in this case WELL about the springs which are located in the river bed). So basically park by the bridge, walk along the trail or the river, enjoy the springs!
Basic Hot Spring Etiquette: 1. no glass ever, pack out your trash and the locals garbage they leave behind. 2. if people show up and you have been in the spring for greater then 15 mins. get out and let the new people enjoy the springs for 15 minutes or so. Its like sharing and taking turns, basic stuff. 3. No sex, no showering/ bathing, no going bathrooom in the spring, gross and unsanitary. Funny how the locals are protective of the area but it looks like meth heaven and broken car land on the last stretch up to the little store. Sad. Ryan thank you for the article. You are very generous in your write up. I live in nearby Fall River Mills.

Now more Bethel Cult students are going to take it over and "baptize" people here. Delete this post dude, locals like me think it's incredibly disrespectful and you have bow ruined one of my favorite spots. Thanks

Not cool to post here

It is privately owned to my understanding. Some things are best left to word of mouth, and for people to figure out on their own. Its basically overrun with people now. Respect the land, remove your post.

Some things are best left for people to learn from word of mouth. My understanding is that its always been privately owned, and we are lucky to use it. Now, its basically overrun with people and impossible to get to yourself. Respect the land, and this place, remove the post.

You missed out!

I’ve been to Kosk/Hunt Hot Springs a handful of times over the past year. You actually missed two pools around the corner from the one washed out during winter! Both are stone-walled, and close to water under trees.

As for private property: there is a caretaker who manages the property for the owner, and he is there most mornings with his dog. The property is privately owned, but everyone has permission to enter so long as they clean up. At night you can see foxes and other wild animals. There are also sometimes cattle and wild horses on the property when it is warm.

Promoting and Advertising Hot Springs on Personal Private Property Could lead to a call to one's Attorney! Would you want someone telling everyone to camp in your backyard or use your backyard?

Hot spring Access

I've been visiting these springs for over 20 years and I do believe they are on private property. However, access always been permitted and camping was prohibited only a few years ago. There is a prehistoric Native American cemetery here. Be respectful, pick up any trash on your way in and out (including the parking area) and perhaps you'll encounter the "spirit-entity" as I did. I don't particularly believe in that kind of stuff but what happened defies rational explanation.I'd like to say a special Thank You to the landowner for granting years of public access.

Kosk Creek Hot Springs

Are you sure the hot springs aren't on private property?? Might want to do some research on the ownership of the land you walked on to get to both areas. It is nice that some are trying to be respectful of the area.

Been there, done that more than 2 years ago
