Soak in Chena Hot Springs

Experience the ultimate relaxation from the natural rock lake at Chena Hot Springs. With an average temperature of 106 degree Fahrenheit, the adults-only lake attracts couples and friends looking to unwind and refresh. Views of lush, green forests in the summer and white, snow-covered trees in the winter make Chena Hot Springs a beautiful escape any time of year. Thanks to heated tunnels that guide guests from the locker rooms directly to the hot springs entrance, freezing temperatures aren’t a concern for visitors. In fact, they create a uniquely Alaska experience – frozen hair! The steam rising from the hot springs causes hair to collect a thin layer of frost and creates a memorable photo opportunity. Visitors traveling with children under the age of 18 can take advantage of the also scenic indoor heated pool and hot tub. Complete the trip with a rejuvenating Swedish, hot stone or deep tissue massage from the Pool House Cabin. Choose from staying on-site at the resort or in the nearby public use cabins or campgrounds at Chena River State Recreation Area.
