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” and “Housekeeper”), held an orientation day, and are getting to work, now that spring is upon us. We are starting to clean up 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, and heavy rains and flooding caused serious road damage, slides, and other intense erosion. We are also preparing for spring and summer work: bury utilities lines, relocation of power lines/poles by Mother Source, construct Community Building near restroom building… We now have our conditional Use Permit (granted by the Shasta County Planning Commission), and we are working on the required improvements so we can re-open ASAP. 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.
