Recently, we shared a drone video of the abandoned hot springs outside of Jackpot. It provided a unique glimpse of what used to be a very active place. Some listeners told us they had heard it was haunted, so we decided to investigate.

One of the most common names for this area around Jackpot is "Hot Ponds". According to what I've found, it carries quite the reputation for some of the weird occurrences that have happened near there.

I have found numerous websites including The Shadowlands and Hauntings both share the following chilling description of what many have experienced there. Hauntings mentioned this:

People at the hot ponds near Jackpot, Nevada have reported seeing footprints and hoofprints appear in the sand even when no one was around.

Ghosts of America contains several stories of witnesses claiming to see orbs and other unknown lights they can't explain.

Ranker claims that the supernatural events there may be tied to a murder with reports of broken glass appearing out of nowhere.

There's an old saying that where there's smoke, there's fire. In this case, there are too many stories ("smoke") for there to not be at least a little fire.
