These natural hot tubs are concentrated between Bridgeport and Lake Mammoth with many of the best not far from Mammoth town. While some can be a little difficult to find, they are definitely worth the hunt.

The Rock Tub Hot Springs

The Rock Tub, so named because it is a small tub built from cemented rocks on a small hill offers some of the most magnificent views of Eastern Sierra.

You will need a high clearance vehicle or 4×4 to access these hot springs, but the views and surrounding meadows are worth the bumpy ride.

Crab Cooker Hot Springs

Shepherd Hot Spring can be a little more frequently visited than some of the others in busy times. Visit in the quieter months such as fall, and you will be rewarded with few people.
