Comments: Lehman Hot Springs is one of the Northwest's largest and oldest hot spring resorts, surrounded by over 3.9 million acres of Wallowa-Whitman National Forest and Umatilla National Forest.
The heated water used at Lehman is provided by 57 separate springs. Each spring ranges in temperature from 145 to 157 F and produce a total of 185 gallons per minute. There are three different hot spring pools. The first pool is very hot (110-116ºF), the second pool is between 102 and 104ºF. The largest pool is maintained between 85 to 95ºF, varying with time of year. The pools operate on a continual flow through basis, so no chemicals of any kind are used in these pools. The newest pool is a chlorinated, filtered pool to comply with Health Department rules.
Away from the pools the outdoors offers mountain bike rentals and trails, snowmobile trails, horseback riding trails, crosscountry ski trails, hunting, fishing, horseshoe pits, and camping / RV space reservations. There are also rooms for rent in the lodge and cabins available. Lehman Springs also offers, and is suitable for, group reservations.
