The Ouray Hot Springs Pool is unique in the world of hot springs in that it doesn't have a sulfurous odor as do most hot springs (e.g. Glenwood Springs pool). It was not overcrowded on the days we went, and there were lots of attractions with short(er) lines, like a couple of slides and an in-water obstacle course. The hot... More

I'm not used to hot springs with kid pools but I was pleasantly surprised by the experience. We are used to more adult hot springs (Arkansas, Ojo Caliente NM, Glenwood, Vapor Caves Ouray etc.) so I decided to not go in the day when children are everywhere but waited until after 7pm when more adults take over the huge pools....

We've made this one of our stops during our many trips to Ouray over the past 29 years. The admission fee is very modest, the locker rooms and showers are clean and well maintained. The pools are great. The lifeguards are very attentive, so you can feel comfortable with the kids. Three years ago, I accidentally left my shaving kit,... More

The pools offer a relaxing way to enjoy the hot water in a family friendly environment. Out kids loved the slides and the obstacle course. There's a swimming test required of younger kids for the deeper areas, but it's not overly onerous. My wife and I enjoyed trying the different temperature pools. It was nice, relaxing, and a beautiful way... More

As we passed through town., there was a large hot springs pool, looked nice, but not anything like Glenwood Springs Spa, and hotel., there seems to be some problem with the heating and getting it warm enough to enjoy., however, I saw plenty of families, etc., in the pool. I can't remember if it is free., but, that comes to... More

Very nice hot springs pool, outdoor, huge! Many different pools w/ different temps, some water slides, a blow up obstacle course, and plenty of room to sit and soak. Clean dressing rooms/showers. Snack bar had some delicious sandwiches and snacks. Think you can bring your own if you like. Very relaxed, family friendly, date friendly, highly recommend!

I would have loved to have been able to go, but it was closed for a private party. I've been there before and thought about it, with great anticipation, during my long flight. Imagine my disappointment. I understand closing because of lightning, but not for a private party.

The Ouray Hot Springs is very family friendly with lots of children running around. The cost to get in is $12 for adults with unlimited re-entry throughout the day. You can bring your own food and water toys into the pool or rent the toys there. The on-site snack bar has delicious home made pastries and kid friendly food (i.e..... More

We used to go here when I was a kid. It hasn't changed much. It's a great, big, fun pool. I was happy to see they have massage. I had a great massage right at the pool. This is a MUST do when traveling in Southern Colorado.
