Very relaxing after a day digging crystals. I hear it is best in the winter time after a day skiing at Maverick Mountain - hoping to make it back to experience that for myself!

We search out and love to find out-of-the-way places and don't expect or care that much about luxurious accommodations, but this place is nearly held together by bailing wire and scotch tape. What potential it has. The 2 inside toilets aren't replenished or even looked at as both of them were out of paper towels and toilet paper for 2... More

We have been here many times over the years. Sometimes it is clean, sometimes not so good. Depends on who the current owners are. Very rustic and a decent restaurant. Close to Crystal Park which is amazing and the ghost town of Coolidge which is very nice. Lots of trails and off the beaten path between the East and West... More

I met friends here for the weekend and loved it. No, it's not fancy- those folks need to go the Big Sky-but really nice people, nice enough cabin and killer homemade apple pie! We were there right after they opened back up for the season, so the hot springs were really clean. Food was basic and tasty. The one thing... More

I love Elkhorn Hot Springs. It is my ultimate sanctuary. It is beautifully nestled in the crevice of where two mountains covered in pine trees meet. In the summer you can easily hike, bike, ride ATV's or go horse back riding without ever seeing another person. With Crystal Park and the Ghost towns close by it is as if I... More

Such a wonderful place to get back to basics!! Soaking in the pools, taking in the beautiful scenery! Warm and friendly surroundings and suburb staff! Will definitely be returning!

Don't waste your time on this place, it's easily the grossest hot springs I've ever been in. We went here after a day of skiing on Maverick Mountain, hoping to soak and relax. I thought I was going to catch something from the changing rooms, the pool itself had a 10x15 foot area that looked like it had been power... More

My husband and I love hot springs and frequently plan vacations that include stays at various locations, that's how we found our way to Elkhorn hot springs in november. It is an out of the way destination but the mineral water is well worth the drive. The cabins are rustic and really over priced, however the lodging rate does include... More

You're bound to be hot and dusty after digging for crystals in the (terrific ) nearby Crystal Park so this was enjoyed by the kids, ages 8 and 9. It would be hard to beat the scenery, but the pools need updating, painting, and it would be great to have some seats in the pool. That said, the changing room... More

What a bunch of whiny S.O.B.'s. This place is nice. Yes, this not a Holiday Inn. You can do what you want. Go hiking, soak in the spring, take a nice drive to one of the many historic areas nearby. I come with my family and play games, get loud, drink whiskey, and have a grand time. Yes, the cabins... More
