Don't like these big pools with tons of people in them? Then these hot springs are for you! They did a great job modeling the area like a big garden. A high fence around it provides a comfortable private atmosphere so you don't feel watched especially if you take advantage of the clothing optional part.

The Orvis Hot Springs were amazing! We aren't the hippie, natural healing, go nude everywhere type, but still felt completely comfortable in the "clothing optional" environment! We went to 4 (there may be more) natural springs and we were able to do all of them in an hour in order to do the adult quick dip for $12 ($16 upfront... More

As always a fun experience. Love this place. Check out the lobster pot and the warm pool if the pot cooks you.

First time visitor and really enjoyed ourselves. Went to the regular pool (not smoking for lobster) and stayed for over an hour the first time. Actually went twice in same day. Lots of fun and not bothered about being nude.

My Husband and I spent the night in the " Antique" room ( it was the only smoking room and the only one left when we booked but there was good ventilation and NO smell!)I got a peek into the other rooms and they were all very attractive with better views!! We enjoyed soaking in all of the pools .... More

This is a great spot to stop for a soak after a long day or many days of Travel. Since this is a Clothing Optional Private Hot Spring, I suggest that unless you have Specifically raised your kids to be comfortable around Full Nudity to take them to the Ouray Hot Springs just a couple minutes south of Orvis/Ridgeway. Save... More

My husband and I just moved near Orvis and are now regulars here. So relaxing and quiet, the pools have different heat levels and the sauna is great. Highly recommend it!

Nothing can beat a relaxing stay - be it for a few hours or as an overnight guest - at Orvis Hot Springs. Be aware that this is a clothing optional facility, and that most guests enjoy the hot springs "au natural." Lewd and/or lascivious behavior is not tolerated or permitted. If you can't act mature and at-ease around naked... More

Orvis Hot Springs is in Ridgway Colorado where everyone should go at least once. It is directly north of Durango (and Ouray) Colorado. It is a little different and it has been there, waiting, a while. Wow.
