Old Town Hot Springs, Steamboat Springs

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.

    Called ahead and was told plenty to do. Showed up to rude employees who obviously catered to members.  more »

    This was the most overrated place in Steamboat Springs. The customer service was awful, it is way too expensive, and half the pools were closed. I called before we arrived and asked if the kid pool wa...  more »

    Good option for spending a day with kids. I like that they had some hot springs as well as some standard swimming pools. At least one of the hot spring tubs was completely shaded, which was nice.

    A little pricey, but a beautiful place. The water feels great and it is HOT! There are lots of spots to sit and each pool varies in temperature by a small amount. Just remember to slowly get into and out of the water. Jumping right in might be uncomfortable. :)

    This place was ok. The challenges were that the water wasn't very clean and also they charge extra for the water slides! Just charge one price and include everything! For swimming, they did have a family price which was nice.

    This place is great for the family. Tons of things for young kids and great space for the tots as well.

    Great place to workout and soak! Located right downtown so if you wanted to grab some food after a great soak in the springs it just a couple blocks to some of the best restaurants.
