This will allow you to experience a magical setting. Not only are there walking paths all around, but the 26-mile long McKenzie River Trail is right at your door.
Belknap's many activities include soaking, hiking and the world-famous class III or IV rapids. Belknap hotsprings offers facilities for weddings or special events.

R. S. Belknap created Belknap Hot Springs initially in 1869. A post office was set up at the site in 1874. It was called "Salt Springs". The name changed to "Salt Springs" by 1875. The post office was closed in 1877, but it was reopened by 1891. They continued to work intermittently until 1953.
Belknap, steeped in history, was once a place to be for stars like Cary Grant. This resort is the last of several similar establishments that were scattered throughout Lane County in the late 1800s. Apart from the decade 1968-1978, the resort has been continuously in operation since the 1870s.
