COVID-19 Response

The following adjustments in operations have been made in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Reservation Availability and Visiting Restrictions

  • If you have a reservation and are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, DO NOT visit the property. Contact the office.
  • Visitors must fill out an additional waiver indicating they have not experienced any Covid-19 symptoms in last 3 days.
  • The springs are open ONLY by reservation. No unreserved walk-ins will be permitted in order to maintain the health and safety of guests, staff, and caretakers.

  • Access is currently limited to 10 people per day (two groups up to 5 people each) to avoid over use and crowded conditions.
  • There are two available time slots to visit per day: 10:00am - 2:00pm or 4:00pm - 8:00pm.
  • You may not have access to both time slots.
  • Group size is limited to 5 people max from the same household, one group per time slot.
  • Please view the calendar for available dates and times.
  • The pools are cleaned in between groups and each evening.
  • No access to the cave.
  • Camping is available on Goldmyer property for the evening time slot on certain days (see the calendar for restrictions).

Reservation Process and New Lottery System

Due to increasingly high demand, Goldmyer Hot Springs will be shifting to a monthly lottery system beginning March 2021 (for reservations in May 2021). Lotteries will be held each month for reservations 2-month out. After lottery requests are processed each month, dates not filled will become available via voicemail request.

After lengthy deliberations, it was determined that a lottery system would be the most fair way to make reservations available to all. Please keep checking this website for details as they develop. (There will soon be a dedicated page with additional details, as well as a lottery entry form).

Until lotteries begin, voicemail requests will be accepted according to the schedule below. Any reservation messages left before 9:00 am PST will not be accepted or returned. Call the office (206.789.5631) and leave a voicemail to get in the queue.

  • February 1st, 2021 at 9:00 am: MARCH reservations available via phone request.
  • March 1st, 2021 at 9:00am: APRIL reservations available via phone request.
    ---- Lottery Transition ----
  • March 2021: MAY reservations available for request via lottery application.
  • April 2021: JUNE reservations available for request via lottery application.

There is no online booking or wait list. If dates become available (from cancellations) they will show on the calendar until filled.

Check-In Times

  • All visitors must arrive and check in with caretakers during allotted time slots of 10:00 am - 2:00 pm or 4:00 pm - 8:00 pm. You may not have access to both times and must prearrange your time with the office.
  • Check out time is promptly at 2:00 pm or 8:00 pm depending on your allotted time slot. If you are late to arrive, your check out time will still be the same. (*If you are camping at Goldmyer, your check out time may be different, please refer to your confirmation email and ask the caretakers).
  • If arriving before 10:00 am, after 8:00 pm, or for the wrong time slot, you may NOT check in or use the springs. Please go off property and return during check in times.
