FAQ

Jemez Springs Bath House Water Composition1. How hot is the water and can I regulate the temperature?

The mineral water issues from the natural hot springs at 159-189 degrees. As the water flows into the Bath House, some is diverted into holding tanks where it cools overnight. This allows you to control the temperature of your bath while still getting the benefits of pure mineral water.

2. Do we need swimsuits or towels?

Swimsuits are not required as you are in a private tub area. Towels can be rented for $1.00 or you are welcome to bring your own towel.

3. Can I bring shampoos, soaps, bath oils?

You may bring your own toiletries. However, we ask that you refrain from bringing non-water soluable oils as they are difficult to remove fromthe surface of the tubs.

4. Can I drink the mineral water?

Our mineral water has not been approved for drinking by the FDA.

5. How many people can bath in one tub?

Our tubs are for individual use only.

6. Are children allowed in the tub area?

Due to the high temperatures and high mineral concentrations of the water, children under 14 are not allowed in the bath areas.

At this time, we do not have the outdoor tubs available. Check with us for future plans for outdoor facilities.
