The Soldier Springs BLM Boondocking area is located within the Bureau of Land Management. You cannot make a reservation for this site but there is usually plenty of space for everyone.

Some of Nevada's most attractive natural hot springs are located on public lands at the edge of the Black Rock Desert and High Rock Canyon, two areas renowned for their breathtaking landscapes, hidden springs, and wild isolation. Here, in the heart of the Black Rock High Rock Emigrant Trails National Conservation Area, visitors can soak in a handful of terraced, dammed-up pools that descend along a hot creek that stretches across the valley, while enjoying the site of Old West history — the stuff of Nevada backroads super soaker's dreams.

The natural hot springs creek at Soldier Meadows beckons bathers with a smattering of terraced, rock-dammed pools, some of which are large enough for groups and others ideal for one or two individuals. A second "hidden spring" is accessible via a moderate hike along a trail or a distinct road off the route to High Rock Canyon. While many of Nevada's popular natural hot springs are "cowboy tubs" or livestock troughs with hot spring water piped in, Soldier Meadows is an entirely natural experience. The water temperature at Soldier Meadows Hot Springs ranges from the mid-90s to the low-100s, but due to the ever-changing nature of many environmental factors, you should review our Hot Springing Etiquette and always verify the water temperature before entering a spring.
