Hot Mineral Springs Resort
Welcome to the WellSprings… “It’s the water!”
Jackson WellSprings is a 30 acre natural hot mineral springs spa and events center located 2.5 miles from the Oregon Shakespeare Festival in beautiful Ashland, Oregon.
The Jackson WellSprings spa, event facilities, and gardens offer a healing environment to relax, enjoy and gather. Home to the Health Research Institute, a non-profit sponsoring educational, botanical and environmental restoration projects, Jackson WellSprings is dedicated to promoting optimal human and environmental health.
Revered for centuries by First Nation tribes as a ceremonial and birthing site, the warm artesian waters on the shores of Bear Creek were dedicated by Eugenia Jackson in 1862 for “natatorium and sanitarium purposes.” Renowned for its healing mineral waters at the turn of the Twentieth Century, Jackson Hot Springs (as it was called then) was one of several mineral spring developments that attracted thousands each year to Ashland to “partake of the water.” One hundred years after opening its doors to the public, the warm artesian springs continue to offer relaxation and rejuvenation to Rogue Valley residents, Shakespeare Festival enthusiasts, and visitors traveling the I-5 corridor.
Jackson WellSprings’ extra large swimming pool receives 80,000 gallons daily of naturally alkaline, warm mineral water. Situated in an oasis garden setting, the spa facility is equipped with a hot water soaking pool, private tubs, a steam room, and a dry sauna. Revitalizing massage, warm water therapies, and a natural foods restaurant complete the prescription for health and vitality. Jackson WellSprings offers a variety of accommodations, including tent and car camping, tepees, and an RV Park.
The WellSprings is transforming into an education and healing center and eco-resort, replete with daily classes and weekend workshops that encourage optimum human health and cultivate one’s interconnectedness with self and Nature. The Jackson WellSprings staff, residents, and volunteers are committed to optimizing the property’s gardens and water features and to enhancing the facility’s restaurant, pharmacy, and healing modalities. We invite you to “partake of the waters” at Ashland’s oldest, up-and-coming, eco-resort and wellness center.
