"The Secret Garden" at Belknap Springs Resort outside McKenzie Bridge, Oregon

At Belknap Hot Springs Resort, across the river from the lodge and to the right, there is a huge and beautiful garden.  There are places there to tent camp, a large cabin available for rent, some restrooms and many very lovely trails and lawns.  Tucked inside of the garden itself, there is a secret garden.  It is hard to find even when you know that it is there.  Behind ivy covered rocks and a hidden concrete colored wall, you will discover these fountains, columns, flowers and paths.

I took these pictures last Friday, and they all turned out so pretty, that I decided to include almost all of the photos that I took.  I hope that you enjoy them.  When you are done with this post, please check out "Belknap Springs Resort and Gardens: The Lodge Area"



It is a peaceful and beautiful place to enjoy.  At the time that we were there, we were the only ones present.  Sometimes people rent the venue for their wedding ceremony for $2,000.  I was glad that nobody was getting married there when we were visiting.  The last time that we went, we couldn't find it!


The water is very shallow.  I imagine that is for easier cleaning, and makes it safer if little kids can't resist climbing in to splash around.


Here is a link to some photos of Belknap that I took a few years back, on my McKenzie River Valley blog:  "Belknap Hot Springs Resort".  I am working on a blog post about the rest of the resort now,  and will have it up soon.  Here is the link to the resort's website, which you can get to by "CLICKING HERE".
