Hot Springs’ waters have been enjoyed for thousands of years – in fact, Hot Springs water has been Carbon-14 dated at 4,000 years old and is high in silica, calcium, magnesium, free carbon dioxide, bicarbonate and sulfate.

Steam Cave Legend
As early as the mid-1800s, stories were told about a cave located down a winding passageway through the tufa stone on this spot where the Quapaw Bathhouse now stands . It was said that the Native American Quapaw tribe soaked in the mud holes and bathed in the thermal springs here. Much research and documentation have been performed since the 1880s and no such cave has ever been located. It is true that the Quapaw used this site for centuries and that the Cherokee, Choctaw and Osage also utilized the springs during their years of forced relocation. Several branches of the Trail of Tears pass nearby.
In the early 1920s, George Callahan, the original president of the Quapaw Bathhouse Company, caused the current tufa stone dome to be erected over a thermal water outlet from the area of the former Magnesia Spring. This spring contains one of the highest and best mineral contents of all the area springs. Into the water of this spring he placed four figurines which he had purchased by mail from a Navajo Indian trader in Arizona. He allowed them to become coated with mineral deposits and then called a gathering of local media to announce the discovery of the Quapaw Gods of the Baths.
It was quickly ascertained that the figurines were not of local design and the publicity stunt was revealed. As luck would have it, the potter of the figurines, a Hopi named Nampayo, became famous and her work quite valuable. The figurines (documented as original Nampayo pieces) were sold to Mr. Callahan as Nampayo Rain Gods in 1922 and are still in the possession of the Callahan family.
Steam Cave Experience
per person for 15-20 Min
The Quapaw Bathhouse was built in the early 1920s over a natural thermal spring. This particular spring contains one of the highest mineral contents of all of the area springs. A small “man-built” cave created during the construction of the building surrounds the spring today and allows the radiant heat from the naturally flowing 143° water to gather in the room. We believe this small, intimate space will provide a healthy and relaxing addition to your Quapaw experience.
The Steam Cave fits six and is an add-on to either the Private Baths or Pools.
DUE TO COVID-19 THE STEAM CAVE IS CURRENTLY CLOSED.
