  • Natural hot springs with lots of different pools with varied temperatures. Went in the fall, but would love to go back in the winter with the snow falling. Worth checking out! 
  • Been here before when I was younger but this time got to stay in a cabin. Let's just say it was an awesome experience. Before we checked in we went skiing at monarch and I hadn't skied in years before...  read more »
  • One of our party had heard of these hot springs from another traveller and we decided to give them a try. We visited in the early evening and watched the sunset from the hot water pools with a number ...  read more »
  • Just soaked for a few hours in the public pools. Not super impressed. No river access and the cooler pool seemed out of commission. Bathrooms were filthy and small. Only thing I liked was the shaded part to the pools and the stone (non- swimming pool) look for the soaking pools. Not impressed for the price.
  • We stayed 2 nights in one of the cabins. We had our own soaking tub and access to the big pools. All pools were functioning, though one would be drained for the day for cleaning, but was up again the next day. We found the staff to be friendly and they accommodated our last minute request for a couples massage. The cabin was clean and nice. Bring an open mind and sense of humor and this place will treat you well. Think of it more like Air BnB than a hotel. The towels, dishes, etc are mismatched, but nice enough to use. There were 4 assorted robes in the room which we found humorous and useful. We had ants outside by our tub that we were told don't bite and would be difficult to eliminate without damaging the environment, so we should do our best to get along with them, which we did. We had a lot of fun and we're glad that we didn't let the one star reviews scare us off.
  • It looks nothing like the pictures, the cabins didn't have AC and had ants/bugs all over it. The lights didn't work and the "private hot spring" that was promised to us didn't exist...the hole was dried up. It'll be good if you're looking for a camping type of trip, not a resort. I had to get a refund and sleep at the Best Western in town
  • Loved the hot pools and the cooler one too! Nice and rustic. Camping spot could be better. It was right next to the parking lot and blaring lights from the office/lodge building and it was difficult to try to watch the meteor shower. I'd go back!
  • Nice quiet place with comfortable beds, a nice view and friendly staff. My wife thoroughly enjoyed the hot spring pools and we had a nice night. My only real complaint is that the room we stayed in smelled very strongly of Ozium like they were trying to cover up something worse but our room had a box fan so I just put it in the window and aired it out.
