In fact according to the Inyo National Forest Mount Whitney Ranger District, Native Americans used this area for summer encampments for hundreds of years. The springs were named after John Jordan, who while building a trail from Visalia to Olancha drowned in the Kern River. Later miners, travelers, and recreationalists would use the springs during the summer. In the early 1900s there was a resort established. However, once Congress signed the Wilderness Act in 1978, the development around Jordan Hot Springs was slowly removed. Today visitors can see the old cabins, cow camps, and pillars in the springs were docks were built.
