I've been going to Granite Hot Springs since 1974. Back then, it was Jackson's best kept secret. You could go and pretty much have the place to yourself. Now, it's all other the internet...Jackson's 5th best attraction!!!!! It's blogged and tweeted all over. But, it's still worth the trip. There's a very nice campground just a mile before you get...

We just happened to stumble onto the turnoff for the hot springs. Beautiful 10 mile ride on a dirt road. We thought we would be the only one's going to this place, I was wrong. Quite a few other adventurers going in this direction. When we finally got there I was surprised it was a pool! I was just amazed... More

We got lost trying to find the turnoff for Granite Hot Springs, but finally found it. About a 10-mile drive up a dirt/gravel road through a gorgeous canyon. A lovely waterfall at the end, and a dip in the hot springs pool (built during the depression).

We did the drive out there in a rental car Chevy sedan and no issues with the road. We traveled on it, just as it opened for spring season and it was fine. It is a dirt road and you have to go slowly, but it is easy to drive. And, there was a ton of wildlife to see along... More

After reading the reviews, we planned to visit this place...which is out in the bunnies. Driving a narrow dirt road and finally getting to a glorified warm swimming pool. Yes, I said POOL. You share your space with other pool goers. The 'hot spring' is flowing from the side of a hill into the pool. It is a very small... More

I was a little disappointed, but it was still a good experience. Some people said that you need a truck to get back there. We have a low riding sedan, and we made it. But you had to drive super slow, so you didn't bottom out in the potholes which made the 10 mile journey down the dirt road seem... More

What a colossal waste of time. It is a long drive from Jackson Hole; about an hour. The drive to it is rocky, bumpy, harrowing when another car is coming from the other direction. This long bumpy road takes you to what is essentially a pool. That costs money. $6 to sit in something that you all probably have at... More

What a great place! We had heard of the challenge getting here but it is well worth every bump, dusty turn, and minute it takes to drive back the approx. 11 mile road to get to the springs. When you arrive, the parking lot is small and was fairly full but we were able to park and walk a short... More

It's a bit of an unnerving drive down a narrow 10 mile gravel road to get to the springs but they are a treat when you get there. There is a short walk from a gravel parking lot that goes past a quaint barn and over a stream that is very photogenic. In retrospect I would have planned a hike... More

Our family of 5 drove the hour from Jackson to the Hot Springs. This experience is for the hardy. It's an hour from Jackson--most of which is on a rugged dirt road. The views en route to the hot springs are gorgeous--forests, streams & mountains. When we finally arrived, it was raining, but it was fine--the water is warm and... More
