Easily Accessible Hot Springs in Arizona Jun 20, 2009
Visiting the Verde Hot Springs was one of my favorite Weekend Getaways in Arizona. It is one of the easiest accessed hot springs in Arizona and is near the Verde Campground where I camped for 2 nights. They are located about midway between Payson and Camp Verde, but more on the Camp Verde side, thus the name ‘Verde Hot Springs. Because of its location, it is better if one has a4 wheel drive. A 2 wheeler will get there fine, but it will be slower and the driver must be very careful going down the unpaved road near cliffs that drop hundreds of feet down.
From the camp grounds the spring is about a mile hike, which is great because it offers an opportunity to build excitement, exercise and see the surroundings. Situated up above the Verde River, the spring is protected by a foundation built around it. It was built in at an old resort that burned down years back and it looks like some hippies have been living in the area, leaving some unbelievable artworks, rather questionable if you ask me on the walls of the springs.
There are two pools; the indoor and outdoor pools. The outdoor pool gives you a great view, but can be very chilling as the brisk winds blow over. The indoor one is warmer, but the art on the wall can be overwhelming.
