|Baker Hot Springs
Delta, UT (39.61291N -112.72923W)
Baker hot springs provides three tubs for soaking. Each is just big enough to accommodate two people. Two sources of water fill the tubs. One ditch carries the hot water while another carries the cold water. You have complete control over the temperature. Baker is very popular for the nearby town folks, so skinny dippers beware.
When needed locals drain and clean the tubs, this is no small chore, as they scrub the walls with a brush and bleach. They also had several trash bags full of trash that someone left behind. Please respect the efforts put forth by these locals, if it were not for them these tubs would not be as inviting as they are. Please clean up your trash and do your part in keeping these springs enjoyable for all.
