Ritter Hot Springs is located in the North East corner of Oregon in Grant County.
To get to Ritter, take ONLY the Ritter Road coming West from highway 395. Some have tried to get there going East--up the Middle Fork of the John Day River. They still haven’t gotten here! So, the directions are:
Get to Highway 395, then near mile post 77B turn West on Ritter Road. There is a sign on 395 which will say “Ritter Junction ½ mile”. Drive West on Ritter Road, after 10 miles GO ACCROSS the bridge crossing the river. In 2/10 of a mile turn right down a gravel driveway to Ritter Hot Springs. (You will still beat the people who tried to come up the Middle Fork.)
