An extremely hot source of water, only occasionally reaching the ground surface, in the low desert of western Arizona. Radium Hot Spring was at one time a resort providing hot mineral and steam baths for locals and travelers in the area. The hot water lies immediately below the surface, and, during wet years, will occasionally reach the surface. The water occasionally flows out into the irrigation ditch adjacent to the old resort. The resort itself utilized a shallow well to obtain the hot water, pumping it into several small rooms in the wooden bathhouse. Unfortunately, there are currently no bathing opportunities at this location, although there is a chance that it may reopen again one day. The old resort is interesting nonetheless, and is worth a visit. Standing on the small hill adjacent to the spring provides a nice view of the surrounding countryside. Radium Hot Spring was at one time a small resort with a simple bathhouse. Despite subsequent attempts to develop the site, it remains undeveloped today.
