Big Bend Hot Springs is located in the town of Big Bend, in northern California. The site has extraordinary geothermal springs and wells and is on the Pit River between two volcanoes, Mt. Shasta and Lassen Peak.
BBHS is in a big transition phase, so please stay tuned and thanks for your patience!
- Big Bend Hot Springs is currently CLOSED until further notice. We are working hard on the process of completing a huge list of Shasta County-required permits, repairs, and code upgrades. Please send us your ideas.
Spring 2013 Update:
We recently hired several helpers (“Associate Land Stewards,” “Housekeeper,” and “Associate Creative Steward”), held an orientation day for new staff, and are getting to work, now that spring is upon us. The Associate Land Steward team has accomplished a large part of the clean up of the huge aftermath of the incredible record-breaking rain and snow storms of December and January. Dozens of trees and branches were taken down by the weight of heavy wet snow, some structures were crushed, roads blocked, and heavy rains and flooding caused serious road damage, slides, and other intense erosion. The ALS team continues to do a great job with the storm clean up and many other aspects of site care and maintenance.
Our conditional Use Permit (granted by the Shasta County Planning Commission), allows us to obtain building permits, work on the required improvements, and re-open when the improvements are completed. Priorities include: geothermal pumping and cooling system, wheelchair friendly hot tubs, parking area by front gate, new spring water system for fire prevention and drinking, wheelchair access to restroom/shower building and campgrounds, bear-proof food and trash containers, etc. Please send us your ideas and thoughts about this community project.
