Up on Hart Mountain, a favored location by Oregonians who love deserts, Rock Creek is still running with water and so is the nearby hot springs. The hot spring is enclosed in a concrete bathhouse, with rock walls to block the wind. Visitor amenities are limited to a parking area, restroom, the bathhouse and 25 designated sites in a nearby campground.
The new guest rooms augment a compound that has RV sites, tent sites, houses and cabins for rent. Many visitors also drop by, while driving Oregon 31 between La Pine and Lakeview, for the $10 all-day soaking pass.
