Located in Eagle Point, Oregon is the Dead Indian Soda Springs. It may sound like a retro restaurant, but the site is actually a natural area, specifically an assortment of small mineral springs. It is connected to the Dead Indian Creek, and are rich in sodium hydroxide, sodium carbonate, magnesium, and iron.

The Dead Indian Soda Springs was discovered in 1871 by John Tyrell, an early European settler in the area. He was hunting an elk and stopped to drink, when he stumbled upon the area. From then, the site became a popular camping site for locals. In the early 1900s, Charles Wiltkinson built his home near the area, right by the mouth of the creek.

Today, the Dead Indian Springs is still open to the public. It is operated by the United States Forest Service.
