  • This place has been in business for many years. In its day it was probably more amazing. The hot strings are very hot and makes the swimming pool comfortable to swim in. The facility is quite run down...  more »

  • The facility is worn but you do get what you pay for. This is not a fancy spa. It is more of a blue collar campsite kind of place. We stopped by to use the hot springs soaking pool and swimming pool. ...  more »

  • If one could give a 1/2 star or a negative star I would. Stayed here Labor Day weekend and it was pretty bad. Have not been there for 25 yrs. or so and it looked as if nothing has ever been kept up. Some wrote about tent camping....would not do it. Time was when you could pull your motor home in....no more. You can however 'rent' a trailer for a ridiculous price and they do not even mop the floors. Pool & Hot springs were just as I remembered them (that means no improvements) and enjoyed soaking in the hot water. Yes they added some slides but how many times can you go down a slide. The "young" people doing guard duty seemed as if they weren't that into doing their jobs. We were told absolutely NO flotation devices or noodles. Last day, kids with noodles. Asked about it and I guess the policy changes daily. I give it a big NO GO.
  • I love this place! I only visit about once every five years because I live in Minnesota. The atmosphere is always welcoming and relaxing. The hot pool is like heaven.
  • We only stopped here to try out the springs and the springs themselves are nice! The smell of sulphur can be a little overwhelming after a while but just to chill and enjoy the benefits it's great. As a day visitor though the changing / showering facilities are a bit of a nightmare. The changing rooms and showers aren't together and the layout of the buildings are really random and if you ask any staff for help they give you the briefest of explanations and you feel as if you're annoying them. We had a nice enough afternoon but there is very little in the way of shade so make sure you bring plenty of sun lotion.
  • Staff is unpleasant, no more restaurant, cabins where very dirty black mold under kitchen sink, no extra bedding, only three towels for 3 days for 4 of us no wash cloths. Cabins are supposed to be furnished. I came here over the past 4 years and they used to be very accommodating. Next year will go somewhere else
  • If you're coming to go camping it's just ok camp sites are very small and nothing separating you from other sites cramped like sardines on one side of the campground they only have Porta potties. The pool is and slides are the only reason we come back fun for the kids hope they upgrade soon specially the showers and bathrooms
