Greeley Bar Hot Spring Professional Review and Guide
"A “you-gotta-be-crazy” day hike or overnight jeep and bushwhack to a soak you could have rafted to, on the far side of the lower Owyhee Canyon. Swimwear superfluous. Those who make it will find a source pool at 110 degrees F tucked away in the tall reeds. In early summer you can mix the river into it by moving a rock or two in the dam. The pool may be stranded on the bank as the river recedes, with no way to cool it off unless you have a bucket. Greeley Bar is a popular stop during the float season; the boaters who stop to soak keep the algae cleaned out. In the non-float season however, you can count on having the pool, as well as the cleaning responsibility, all to yourself. Note: The spring lies within the Wild and Scenic River corridor; no development of any kind is allowed. Remember to practice low-impact camping techniques."
