Panaca Hot Springs
Approximately 2 hours
Panaca Warm Springs is technically in Nevada, but about two hour drive from Duck Creek Village.

There are two ladders on either side of the pond to make entrance easier and the water is crystal clear.
Meadow Hot Springs
Approximately 2 hours & 15 minutes
Three hot pools are located on private property and can be visited by anyone who wishes to take a dip. The pools may be visited all night long, with the possibility of little to no crowds. The first pool is said to be the warmest, while the others remain pleasantly hot. Visitors may camp overnight or build fires near the pools; they are only asked to leave their area cleaner than they found it.
Fat Man’s Misery
Approximately 1 hour
This spring requires a little bit more work to get to. Located just outside of Zion National Park, this route can be accessed by canyoneering through the canyon. It does not have a soaking pool but hikers can still shower under the warm fall. No permit or fee is required to go through the canyon but there is an entrance fee to enter the park.

Baker Hot Spring
Approximately 3.5 hours
Located north of Delta, this hot springs is a little bit closer to civilization than its neighbor, Gandy. The spring is shallow and has Yellowstone-like formations from the minerals in the water. Surrounded by knee high grass, rising steam off the crystal clear water makes a picturesque scene. Young children should be watched when near this area as it can be difficult to see this hot spring and extremely hot. Because of their extreme temperature, locals have created tubs just 200 yards downhill from the spring where visitors can control the temperature by letting water in from a cool water source or the spring. Each tub can fit several people and make for a relaxing experience.
