Things to Bring When You Soak At Crystal Crane

We’re admirably a LONG way from home for most people. So, when you come out here for a stay, you want to make sure to bring everything you need. And, if you are new to soaking, or have never stayed with us before, you may not know what you do, don’t, and might like to bring. So, we’ve done the work for you.

Towels – Might want to bring

If you are staying overnight in one of our waterfront cabins, tepee, rental units or the Sage Inn, clean towels (and sometimes even robes) are provided. But if you are camping, RV-ing,  or just visiting for the day, bringing a towel is wise. If, however, you do forget, we have rentable towels at the front desk.

Robe – Bring

Other than the bunk house, we do not provide robes. Not only are they great for snuggling into after a soak, but they are convenient to have a around to walk to the bathhouses or the shared bathrooms.

Food – Bring

While we love the little Crane Cafe and Grocery nearby (about 7 miles), it has limited options and hours. We only have snacks onsite, so bringing your own food is very wise. For overnight guests, they have 24/7 access to our camp kitchen and BBQ’s.

Coffee – Don’t bring

We offer coffee in the Common’s Room, so no need to bring.

Floaties – Bring

Because our pond is privately-owned and very large in size, we don’t care if you want to enjoy your soak on an inflatable. So bring you life vests, floats, kid’s toys…whatever you need to enjoy your soak.

Alcohol – Don’t bring

Alcohol and glass containers are not allowed in the hot spring pond for safety reasons. We do not have a lifeguard on duty.

Fire Wood – Don’t bring

We have local firewood available for purchase when the weather permits. Bringing out-of-town firewood can carry pests with it and we do not recommend doing so. But don’t forget to bring the S’mores!

Bedding – Don’t bring

If you are staying in one of the rental units or tipi, your bedding is provided. However, if more than one person is staying in our Tepee, you will want to bring a cot or air mattress and bedding, as the ground is made out of concrete and only a queen bed plus bedding is provided.

Games, Books, Entertainment – Might want to bring

We have cable TV, a large selection of books and games, and a variety of other entertainment options in our Commons Room. You are welcome to use our free WIFI also, but it’s a bit sketchy because, well, we are all about the water and not our technology. You came here to relax anyway!
