Rogers Warm Spring is located about one hour outside
of Las Vegas, in the Lake Mead National Recreation Area. It is like
a desert Oasis, complete with a little cluster of palm trees and waterfalls
to soak in. The pool itself is wide but not deep, and very clear, with
little fish swimming in it. The water is about 90 degrees. Rogers is
a nice place to get away from it all. The desert is extremely quiet,
except for the occasional passing car. Nearby is Lake Mead and Hoover
Dam, as well as the Valley of Fire State Park, with plenty of Red Rocks
and quiet, open spaces.
As with all warm springs (those under 104 degrees or
so), disease causing organisms are a concern, so do not submerge your
head, as certain organisms are said to enter through the nasal cavity.
There is a sign posted to this effect (in spanish for some reason),
however I have seen children swimming underwater and was told that they
do it all the time, and nothing has happened. Getting sick from a warm
spring seems to be a rarity, but it does happen, so be cautious.
Rogers directions to be posted. Facilities provided
are toilets and changing rooms. Overnight parking is prohibited, and
bathing suits are required.
