A great place to go in late afternoon and watch the sun go down over the mountains while relaxing in the hot waters. Lots of families so beware but if you look hard enough you’ll find a quiet place to chill!

For families with young kids this seems like a no-brainer place to spend an afternoon. It’s pricey, though, for what is essentially just a bunch of pools. $18 for adults and kids, ages 4–12, are $12 but if the kids want to ride the slides (and what kid doesn’t?) it’s an extra $3/per kid for the slides and there’s only 2 slides. You can get your hand stamped and come back later in the day if you’d like. They have changing rooms and showers and lockers for valuables are 50 cents. They have a change machine if needed.

Pools are restricted according to age and swimming ability. Our family spent the day in the shallow pool letting the kids play volleyball. They did try the slides a few times but they quickly became disinterested in them.

Our children would have loved to have played in the activity pool, which is a pool with an obstacle course, or tried the rock climbing wall, but they’re required to pass a swim test to play in those areas and our kids weren’t experienced enough.

The swim test requires kids to swim an entire lap of the lap pool doing the breast stroke and half a lap doing the back stroke. The life guard told our 10-year old he didn’t keep his legs horizontal enough on the back stroke to pass. The life guard was nice about it and told him to go practice for 30-minutes and come back and try again, but our son was discouraged and didn’t want to. I understand the rules are there to keep everyone safe but with all the life guards on duty and all the pools being only 3-4 feet deep where most older kids can easily touch the bottom should they fall off the obstacle course or rock climbing wall their swim test requirement seems a little silly. Our kids do these same activities at our local water park in Texas, no swim test required, and have never had a problem. For the amount of money we paid it was disappointing to be be stuck in one area all day.

The adults in our group did briefly try out the hottest over-look pool and the kids did briefly join us in the mid-heat pool.

Overall we enjoyed ourselves and being in a pool surrounded by mountains is a neat experience, but for the price we wish we could have done more.

We visited here after a long day off jeeping. It was very relaxing. I liked that they had different temperature pools to try out. They were beautiful!

We were on a motorcycle trip and spent the night in Ouray. We walked down to the hot springs pool and enjoyed sitting in the warm water for awhile. There wasn't multiple pools with varying temperatures, only one pool was warm the other was cooler. It was before their opening summer season so not all the pools were open yet. The cost was reasonable. You need coins for lockers and showers.

Newly refurbished & re-openend June 2018... when we arrived!
Gorgeous Views of the Rocky Mountains!
Pools are separated into 1) Lap pool, 2) Activities pool with rock climbing wall & Obstacle Course, 3) Shallow pool, 4) Adult's only pool, ect.
Safe: Well staffed with plenty of life guards
It has a pond for kids to feed the fish & turtles.
Pools & bathrooms/showers were spotless!
We went in the mid-day....then came back for soaking under the stars. Opened 10-10.
I have been to some Hot Springs that were not so clean or updated! This one has been around for MANY years as per cool pictures on the walls.... but the town takes good care of it! Enjoy!
