  • Went back on a Wednesday. The pool isn't as hot as it used to be as I guess that they lost one of their wells. The changing room was cleaner as was the bathroom and I didn't walk into a cloud of cigar...  more »
  • We've been going down to Dakota Hot Springs since it was called The Well and have always found it to be clean, friendly and relaxing. Yes, there are stains on the bottom and sides of the pool. People,...  more »

  • Overall the hot springs are nice. it's a somewhat large pool kind of roundish; it's hard to get a good swim in there cuz it's not that big and people get in your way. They have one little tub that hot water flows into that's the hottest part then it gets cooler as you go out towards the edges. But it's a nice pool that's good temperature throughout they have one end where they have volleyball net and they hit the volleyball back and forth about every hour I think. This is a clothing-optional place except on Mondays. Mondays you have to wear swimsuits and then maybe one other day as well but otherwise it's clothing optional. My partner and I had a good time.
  • I started going here in the fall and can't believe that I never went before. I'm going often now. It's not 4 Star plush it's more 4 Star homey which is just fine for me. It's clothing optional every day except Tuesday when clothing is required. Loving it.
  • Wonderful water and most of the people are friendly. Bathrooms and showers area bit dated and the community kitchen can also use updating. The middle of the week is the best time to go if you want to soak without a lot of people playing volleyball around you but if you want that kind of fun then the weekends are fun. It is clothing optional everyday except,for Tuesday's so be prepared for nudity.
  • Formerly "the well," it is starting to show its age, but it is still quite enjoyable. . . If you do not mind the cigarette smoke and are comfortable with nudity. Reportedly, one of the two hot spring wells has now failed, leaving one side of the pool without a hot water inlet. It might be worth a call before driving very far to make sure that the pool is still hot. We make sure to stop every time we are in town, but it is certainly nicer in the few days after a cleaning (Tuesday, I think). I definitely recommend bringing an adult beverage to enjoy poolside.
  • Relaxing atmosphere. The rules make you feel safer. The view before sunset is worth it. there is a hotter 'tub' toward the center, if you want something hot. Otherwise, the water was perfect for me and i felt rejuvenated after. Read website and know the rules and you will be great!
