  • This place is a legend to those from Colorado because it has been in operation since 1888. That being said it only has 2 pools. A small one with very hot water and a huge pool much cooler. This place ...  more »
  • Love it! Love it! Love it! A constant 90 degrees in the large pool. Constant 104 degrees in the smaller pool. If there’s a crowd it doesn’t seem so much because of the size. Spent 9 hours there one da...  more »
  • Loved this!! Who doesn’t love floating around in a 94 degree football-field-sized pool? And if you get cold you can warm up in the 104 degree humongous hot tub! These pools are fed by the Glenwood Hot...  more »

  • Glenwood Hot springs Pool, located in Glenwood Springs, Colorado, is a fairly large attraction for tourists, given that Aspen, Colorado is less than an hour drive away. The pool is big, as in two blocks long, and up to over 10 feet deep. The average depth is about 3.5 to 4 feet. No matter your age, you can swim! There is a hot tub, a large pool, and a kitty pool. All are heated using the naturally heated water. Fresh water is added to the hot water to cool the temperature, and all water is filtered up to a few times per day. All water is also purified and very clean, despite the “egg” smell some will notice (which is perfectly fine). There is a men’s and women’s locker room for dressing out, and three family restrooms. Lockers are provided, but are pay as you go using quarters. Quarters exchanged for cash at the front office. *If you go after 5:00 p.m, there is a discount off normal price.
  • Such a neat experience to swim in a hot spring... The world's largest. A must-do if you're in the area! They're open until 10 so definitely do the night swimming if you can! Water slides are from 10-6 so plan accordingly. The big pool is more for swimming and is like warm, bath water temperature. The hotter area is 105 I believe and is the more peaceful "quiet zone."
  • A million gallon plus hot spring pool that never felt over crowded is the centerpiece to this relaxing and fun for the family public pool. Complete with a massive therapy pool, essentially a giant hot tub, 2 slides and a smaller kiddie pool, there is something to do for the whole family. My family and kids thoroughly enjoyed our time here. They had plenty of space in the locker room and the facility was amazingly clean. I recommend bringing the family on a vacation here.
  • Wonderfully relaxing!!! I have been coming here since I was a baby and now bring my kids. Worth every penny, but make sure to wear sunscreen and bring water to drink. The snack bar has gone downhill a little in recent years and the ice cream is not worth it, I would rather go get McDonald's. Make sure to come early and get chairs and a good lounging place as they go very fast and shade is VERY limited. Coming at night is also a special experience to be able to relax and star gaze.
  • Very large operation! Nice pull through sites. Cable really was kinda crappy, but the pool and showers and laundry room were kept up nicely. A bit spendy to do laundry here.. Good to see that they recycle here! Staff was able to answer most questions and offered suggestions on site seeing adventures. One suggestion was rafting with Defiance Rafting . We did a one hour short, wet and fun rapids ride. Excellent staff, all very kind and witty! Highly recommend it! With the high fire danger, we had no fires, which stunk. We understand though! Thank you for your hospitality!
