Jonesboro Warm Spring
This warm spring lies on private property, and is currently not open to the public.
Type: Natural hot spring on private property.
Driving Instructions: Jonesboro Warm Spring lies just north of the Central Oregon Highway near mile post 199. The spring can be recognized from the road by a small trickle wetting a rocky cleft. There is no parking in this area and the nearest camping is on BLM land, a few miles away.

Comments: Jonesboro Warm Spring would likely make a fine soaking spring as it has sufficient flow and high enough temperatures (112ºF), but as mentioned earlier, it is on private property within the confines of the Vaughn Peach Ranch.
From the road one can see a few signs of the spring's presence: the aformentioned trickle, more plantlife than normal in this part of the desert, and, on some occassions, steam.
