Old Town Hot Springs is an historic hot spring and recreational facility in the heart of Steamboat Springs, Colo. It is a family friendly facility, which has been a location for recreation and rejuvenation for visitors and locals alike for over 100 years. The swimming and soaking pools served as a gathering and bathing place for the Ute Indians who first settled in the area. Then in the late 1800s, it was a social spot and a bathing place for the early homesteaders.

The Old Town Hot Springs sits at an elevation of 6,700 feet and offers eight pools, including two 230-foot waterslides, a new 3,000 square foot hot activity pool, an aquatic rock climbing wall, refurbished Heart Spring pool, eight lap lanes and more. It is a multi-use complex open seven days a week, year-round.

The famous Heart Spring is the source of all of the water in the pools. It pumps approximately 150 gallons per minute and comes out of the ground like an artesian well, meaning naturally without the use of pumps. The water then runs into an overflow system filling each of the pools. The pools range from 82 degrees to 103 degrees. Bathing suits are required. The pools are handicap accessible.

The Old Town Hot Springs has a Fitness Center with weights and a cardiovascular area, also offering exercise classes. You can get a massage. Locker rooms, a snack bar, and childcare are also available. Suits and towels are available for rent. You can play tennis in the summer or rent the new upper deck for a party.

The Old Town Hot Springs is a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation, located in downtown Steamboat, just three blocks to a café, store, service station, and motel, as well as two miles to overnight camping and RV hookups. Credit Cards are accepted.

Location: On the north side of US 40, at the east edge of the City of Steamboat Springs.

  • Hot springs felt so good after a long day of walking, and sight seeing. Went in the evening when the prices were reduced. 
  • Great place to enjoy soaking in hot springs! Very clean pools and changing area, staff very friendly and helpful. 20 dollars including towel great price for day long admissions! 
  • I have been to a few different springs in CO and many of them are either quaint and rundown or big open pools with no character. I thought Old Town would be the latter, but not so. It has several diff...  read more »
  • We were there 15min and got rained out, no problem ask for a refund, NOPE! Not even 50% which means our 15 minutes cost us over a dollar a minute! They apologized for the weather but I understand inclement weather but bad business I don't get! Would recommend the other hot springs any day or just do a different activity
  • A public swimming pool in Steamboat Springs is badly needed. This place is quite expensive if you live in town and simply want to take your kid swimming. It's the only game in town and they're very well aware of that fact as you can see by the pricing. For example, if my wife, one child and I want to go swimming this summer, the daily rate is $47 for the three of us to use the pool. This does not include the fitness center, waterslide or anything else. Another option would be $156/month totalling $624 for us to have summer pool access June through September. Should a local working family have to pay $624 for summer pool access? Steamboat Springs needs a Recreation Center to allow for local kids to swim at an affordable price.
  • Can't believe some of the negative comments. Staff here is great, friendly and accommodating. On the music, it changes based on the time of day (yes a lot of us boomers work out in the a.m., sorry...). Lots to do here, great classes.
  • Paid the fee, which for a non profit is kind of high. As soon as we came out of the locker rooms they closed the pools because of lightning. I understand that but no refund? Didn't even get out of the lobby. Was advised they were telling people about the weather. Nobody said anything to us before we paid.
  • Its awesome , very beautiful nice place to experience the hot springs, just amazing how they incorporated the hot springs into an area all ages can enjoy. Definitely a place to go and not miss out on if you are in town, loved it
