This beautiful property has been under the care of proprietor Rocki Eriksen for the past 20 years, and it is her vision to continue to transform it from the badly neglected and abused place it was prior to her ownership.
Some of the things in the works are more tubs, a changing room, showers, bathroom and possibly a sauna. It would also be great if the Old Tavern could be restored and revived — renovated as a microbrewery, fine destination dining or a roadside cafe.
All of this takes know how, commitment and, most importantly, funds. If interested in investing and you have experience in restaurant, hotel management, concert/festival production or organizing outdoor recreational events, please send a resume to Rockel Eriksen at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A Bit of History
The Northern Maidu, native inhabitants of Plumas and surrounding counties for more than 2000 years, occupied the Feather River region and its many tributaries. It's unknown whether they made use of these particular hot springs, however.
In recent history, the Springs were discovered around the same time that the road was built connecting Oroville to Reno, which was in about 1930. Small communities were built in the canyon to accommodate workers as well as travelers. The tiny trickle of hot water that came from the rocks was drilled deeper, cement tubs were installed and two free-flowing pools were developed. In the late 1930s, a small resort was built that consisted of a few tiny cabins where people could come and take the healing waters.
