If you feel like you’ve got the weight of the world on your shoulders, then you need a pick-me-up here in Bishop, California. We’re far away from the crowds of the big city and have plenty of wide-open skies and fantastic, spacious outdoor vistas. If you need to get outside of your cramped quarters and into a change of pace that will make you feel better, then there’s no better thing to do than to seek out some of Bishop’s natural hot springs!



There are all sorts of benefits to soaking in natural hot springs. According to, “The water found in natural hot springs contains a variety of different minerals, including calcium and sodium bicarbonate. When you bathe in a hot spring, your skin soaks in these minerals and your hydrostatic pressure rises. As this process continues, circulation and oxygen flow increases -- much like when you exercise. An oxygenated circulatory system is beneficial in keeping not only your heart but your body's other vital organs and tissues, healthy and strong.” The minerals in the water can also alleviate skin problems, and give you a better night’s sleep! You can’t beat that!


Even better, the largest of these springs only seats about 20, and the smallest can accommodate a group of four. That means if you want a refreshing dip, all you have to do is plan a trip around non-peak hours and you’ll be able to keep your distance from other hot spring goers, safe and sound! 

Looking for where to take a dip? This list is a valuable resource that will help you plan a restorative trip! 


If you’re thinking of taking a hot spring trip, it’s because you need to RELAX. You can do that by booking a room at Best Western Bishop Lodge. Our responsible, attentive staff are cleaning the premises spic and span so you can rest easy, even in these troubled times.
