Deer Creek (Bigelow) Hot Springs Professional Review and Guide
"A warm soaking pool in a fern-lined grotto on the banks of the McKenzie River. Deer Creek Hot Springs is a mellow little soaking pool on the upper stretches of the McKenzie River. There’s only one soaking pool at Deer Creek Hot Springs, but it’s a beauty. The 8-by-12-foot pool sits a few feet from the McKenzie River. Half of the pool is enclosed by a 4-foot-deep grotto covered with ferns and moss. You can choose to sit inside the grotto (where the water tends to be a bit warmer) or soak in the exposed portion of the pool with a better view of the McKenzie River. Keep your eyes peeled for water ouzels bobbing and chirping on the rocks in the river current."
