Take the road up to Keough Hot Springs and go about 1/2 a mile. Turn right at the power towers and go about 500'. Park it and jump in!
These pools are filled with runoff from the official Keough Springs just above. They're warm, not HOT, and very comfortable. I've seen people in the buff here and many with swimsuits on...it's up to you how you dress. Or don't dress.
