Cottonwood springs offers a great unwinding after sleeping on the ground and hiking all day. The 3rd level of hot was a bit too small a pool for the number of people who liked that level. And the hottest one is too hot for more than a few minutes. Showers were clean and staff courteous. I appreciated that In the... More

Enjoyable, peaceful for the most part, great place to relax at the end of a day of hiking or biking. Four pools of varying temperatures, from cold to very hot. Most of the pools aren't very large so there isn't much privacy, but it is generally quiet in the late evening. They are open to midnight daily, but the office... More

After a morning of whitewater rafting we stopped at the hot springs to try it out based upon a friend's recommendation. The pools are like something out of a movie! Natural looking pools of varying temps from very hot (104 degrees) to regular pool temps (84 degrees). Most of the pools are covered so you have shade (no sunscreen allowed... More

We had a long weekend celebrating our 8th anniversary and knew of a couple of hot springs in the Buena Vista area. Several locals had recommended the Cottonwood Hot Springs. It is a nice place...pretty rustic, but has 5 or 6 pools and was not crowded. The people that were there gave every other patron plenty of space. No alcohol... More

We were staying close to this hot springs and thought we'd try it over Mt. Princeton hot springs. So glad we did! Not over-run with kids like Mt. Princeton. Seems to be a favorite of locals and old hippies like us :-)

These guys have kind of a low key atmosphere; no drinking or smoking, requests for quiet, hand painted signs. Really soft sheets and the hot springs are well maintained. Don't bring a crazy party in here because it won't last long, but bring your peace and quiet and you'll have a wonderful experience!

I will admit that I had a vision of this as being kind of hokey, but it was actually some of the best, most relaxing time my wife and I had on our big Colorado trip. It was so soothing. I would say not to expect a "fancy spa" like you were at Disney, but it made me want to... More

A totally relaxing way to while away some time. Are there 4 or 5 pools? Gosh! Whatever they number, they are each a different temperature and several have sunshades over them. You can move from pool to pool as your body dictates. This has to be good for you! Locker room is spare. Towels are available. We were not charged... More

We went here after a week in Buena Vista and riding our ATV through the mountains. It was very relaxing. Three pools were available each with a different temperature. I believe the cooling pool was 88 degrees and felt good after sitting in the hot pool (106 degrees?) There was another pool in between temperature wise. The only complaint is... More

Very relaxing day, four of the five pools were open. Moved from pool to pool, get too hot in one move to a cooler one, repeat. Staff was friendly kept telling you to stay hydrated and provided free water during your visit.
