Soothe your muscles after strenuous outdoor activities any time of year. The pool is always kept at a comfortable 90°-93° F and the therapy pool averages about 104° F. Treat aggravated joints and dehydrated skin with all-natural, therapeutic minerals. You will feel the difference throughout your body within minutes of stepping in. Then jump into the big pool that spans over two city blocks and "cool down." Swim laps in the deep end, practice your form in the diving pool, hit the water slides, putt around the mini golf course, or frolic in the kiddie pool: rafts, floats, masks, snorkels and foam discs or balls are all welcome.This year, Glenwood Hot Springs celebrates 125 years! « less

We have been by several times but we were camping near by on this trip so decided to check it out. The warm water was very relaxing after a long day on the road. It is a hot spring so the water does have a sulfur order but we did not find it disagreeable. It is a major tourist attraction... More

This is a big place, with a huge parking lot and two huge long pools. It is expensive, costing about $20.00 per adult. This is apparently a true hot spring, but I didn't quite get why this is such an attraction. There is a distinct sulfur smell. There is one very hot section, and the whole pool is quite warm....

Dithered over whether to go because we were tired but decided it would be sinful to spend a few days in the Glenwood area and not visit the springs. We arrived just after 8.30 p.m. when the crowd had started to thin out. Lounged around in the water for over an hour as dusk fell. You'll learn all about costs... More

We've been to the Hot Springs on several occasions now, summer and winter. Yes, it's pricey to get in. But we feel it's worth it. The water is amazing, and really does help with aches and pains. On our summer trips, we've gone later in the afternoon and been able to take advantage of people leaving to find prime chairs-... More

As others have said this is expensive. We did a night swim $15.50 adult and $10.50 for kids 3 and over. Just so you know the slide is closed for the evening session which disappointed my one child. If you are going through town once it is cool to say you did it once. I wouldn't plan a special trip... More

We went during the last hour (they were open until 10pm) and it cost a little over $11. When I first walked in it look like a huge pool but looking closer it was made if stone and super warm! The pool wasn't not empty but not crowded and everyone was staying until closing :-) We spent a short amount... More

This is one of our favorite things to do. We are only 5 hours away, so usually make the trip two or three times a year. Our favorite time to go is winter mornings. Very few people are there, and you feel like you get the pool to yourself. I love when it is snowing or raining. So Fun! We... More

It is hard to imagine traveling to Glenwood Springs and not stopping at the hot springs pool - lile going to Washington DC and not seeing the White House. It is expensive, and it can be crowded, but if yiou have the ability to plan for an early morning arrival - the pool opens at 7:30a - I think you... More

Our July, 2014 visit proved a big failure due to relatively high charges and the potential unsafe pool conditions. Could we adults lounge while our children swam? Yes... Adult SITTING prices range from $12 - $20. Could we feel comfortable with two lifeguards working? NO! My husband is a licensed lifeguard trainer and immediately noticed one life guard walking the...

once you get over the sulfur small, it's very relaxing, but either get there early or got late in the day - it's gets very crowded and $20 to get in seemed overpriced unless you spend the whole day there
