California State Parks granted Gilroy Hot Springs Conservancy permission to re-open the site once the Conservancy completes several strategic improvements. So far, a group of dedicated volunteers maintained Gilroy Hot Springs over the last 20 years while has been closed to the public. The mineral spring well is active and continues to produce mineral water with temperatures ranging from 95-106F. California State Parks completed restoration of the Texas Cabin, which has 4 rooms and breathtaking views from the deck. The 2 room Minnesota Cabin is also well on the way to a completed renovation.

The Vision for the Hot Springs
The long term goal of the Conservancy is to restore all 22 contributing resources as well as rebuild the historic hotel and clubhouse. Our vision is for Gilroy Yamato Hot Springs to again become a community center and destination point for healing all that harms us, our health and our families in modern times. We hope you will join us in making this dream a reality and become part of the hot spring story yourself. With your contribution, we will be able to reopen the site and you will have the chance to be among the first to camp and soak again in the healing waters.
