Big Bend Hot SpringsMaybe Private

Not to be confused with the Big Bend Hot Springs in Texas, these ones in California are private land and closed for years due to so-called development.

Benton Hot SpringPrivateThis private hot spring has good reviews and camping is available.
Lake City Hot SpringsPublicLittle can be found on these except that they look spectacular and dry up around July-August due to low rainfall and large amounts of agricultural water usage.
Lake CountyNot many springs for soaking, but some developed resorts and interesting trails for the ruins of early-20th century soaking culture. http://www.visitredwoodcoast.com/content/bartlett-springs-road/nco96E4206AB50BB2CB2
Mount ShastaPublicNear the top of Mount Shasta is some water that bubbles to the surface but is not collected into pools.http://markberger.net/Mt_Shasta_July_2000/index.htm

Skaggs Warm Springs

These may be underwater due to a dam now, but apparently there was a resort and history abounds.
