Reservation Lottery

  • A web based lottery submission system for coordinating reservations is being implemented to create a more efficient and equitable process for visiting Goldmyer Hot Springs.

How it Works

  • An online-only lottery application must be used to submit your reservation request (please only call the office if you need assistance filling out the form).
  • A lottery drawing is held each month to determine a list of winners (see schedule below).
  • The lottery is not an online reservation system, it is a submission form only and does not guarantee a reservation.
  • After lottery winners are drawn, reservations will then be confirmed over the phone and full payment will be required.
  • Any dates unfilled by the lottery will be listed on the reservation calendar and filled over the phone.

March 2 - 31: Online lottery submissions open for May Reservations.

  • April 1-15: Office staff will make calls to May lottery winners.
  • April 15 +: Individuals who did not obtain a lottery spot will be notified via email.
April 1 - 30: Online lottery submissions open for June Reservations.
  • May 1-15: Office staff will make calls to June lottery winners.
  • May 15 +: Individuals who did not obtain a lottery spot will be notified via email.
May 1 - 31: Online lottery submissions open for July Reservations.
  • June 1-15: Office staff will make calls to July lottery winners.
  • June 15 +: Individuals who did not obtain a lottery spot will be notified via email.
June and beyond: The process above will repeat indefinitely.


Reservation Application Directions

  • You may enter the lottery for up to three different days and time slots in your order of preference.
  • Entering the same date three times does not increase your chances of obtaining a reservation for that date.
  • Two time slots/groups are available for each day.
  • Weekends have higher demand; if you are able to visit during the week when there is less demand, your chances for obtaining a reservation will likely be higher.
  • Individuals may only have one reservation each month.
  • If changes need to be made to your lottery entry before it closes, you may access and edit your entry using the full name, email address, and phone number used to create your entry (must match exactly).
  • No changes may be made after the lottery has been drawn on the first of each month.
  • No camping available on Mondays and Thursdays due to cleaning.

Lottery Entry Form

  • The lottery entry form for May will be available here on March 2, 2021.


Lottery Calendar

  • The lottery calendar will display reservation spaces available for each day.
  • It will also display a running total of lottery requests for each day so demand is transparent.
  • The calendar will reset on the 1st of each month.
  • Chrome or Firefox web browser is recommended.
