Here are a few answers to frequently asked questions about Sierra Hot Springs…and check out our recommended Packing List by clicking here.
Do you allow alcohol?
What do you mean by clothing optional?
- Respect privacy and modesty. Many are sensitive about their bodies and not used to the vulnerability of nudity. Bathing suit or not, one inappropriate glance can be offensive enough to ruin another’s experience. Cameras and the taking of photographs in the bathing area are not permitted for this reason.
- Be mindful of the quiet. We cherish the quiet contemplation and relaxation these waters bring and many guests travel long miles specifically to reach the peace and silence of Sierra’s springs. Quiet conversation can be held outside of the Dome area and in all outdoor areas.
- Save sexual activity for your private room. Sierra is a romantic place and we love that. We find physical expressions of love can cause great discomfort when on display. Please reserve all sexual activity for the privacy of your room.
Is Sierra Hot Springs a nudist colony?
