I loved the hot water, and various pools.We just carried our towels out with us and hung them on the rail, though for .50 you can get a locker if you have valuables. The dressing rooms are adequate. There is nothing else really to do besides sit there and relax and talk. Even though it was a cold day, you... More

Loved it at night in the winter. The steam from the hot water creates a shroud around everyone making it seem very intimate even in a large crowd.

Came up for the weekend with my girlfriend and the first night we came to the pools we dove, well inched our way into the hotest pool first because it seemed to be less crowded. It was very hot but once we got used to it it felt amazing. This place is the main attraction in the town so expect... More

Our first visit to the Hot Pools was great. It was better than expected. We liked the varying temperatures of the pools and the facility. Will come back.

$5.50 will get you an all day soak during week days! Facility very clean and laid out well with lots of variety in pool temps and style. Worth the trip!

It was clean, there are multiple pools with different temperatures. Several of the pools have awnings which were nice however when sitting on the benches in the springs the awnings dripped (it was snowing) which gave a chill with each drop. It would also be nice if there were an adults only pool.

What a fabulous find! This place is just great for a stopover with all the benefits of the natural hot springs. This facility is really clean and well run. The lava rock on the bottom of the pools is quite nice. I will say that most of the fun is had tubing down the river multiple times. There are tubing... More

These are clean, hot, beautiful pools. I like the pebbles on the bottom of the pools and the overhead shading. Nice dressing rooms...I highly recommend.

This stop was almost by accident. We had changed our plans somewhat and found we needed a place to stay in logan Utah. These hot springs were on the way and we had a couple of hours to investigate. The place is wonderful! The entrance fee was $10. There are changing rooms and plenty of free parking. The day we... More

Loved it, beautiful area, great value to enter and the hot pools were so relaxing. Helped with sore muscles and loved visiting in the off season in October had the most hot pool all to ourselves.
