Water was not very warm but crystal clear. Facilities nice but getting dated. Great place for the family to get away for a weekend.

Pros--water very clear, 87 degrees year round, fun watching the kids try to conquer the rings. Not too busy on a weekday early afternoon; with only two slides it wouldn't be too fun if it were busier. We stayed for about 2 hours, everyone enjoyed the steam room and sauna, the lifeguard shared a bit of local history which was... More

I'm local and was shocked when it cost 3 of us over $47 to play in the "cool" water. Should it really cost over $15 for a 3 year old? And yes, we purchased the extra $3.50 for the hot tub cost because after being in the cool water you have to warm up! Sad to say we won't be... More

I was in town for a month. So I got a one month pass. Newcomers are allowed into the indoor pool area to check out the temperature of the water, so complaints about the temperature are unnecessary. It is warm water, not hot water. Warmer in the shallow end than the deeper end. A month long membership allows one to... More

We stopped on our return motorhome trip from the Black Hills to give the kids some fun. Pool very clean and many activities with tubes and slides. the kids 9 and 10 had a ball and was a fun change from the touristy viewing of all in the Black Hills.

This is one of my favorite places to have a healthy good time. You need to really like swimming. This is a real pool.

We decided to revisit some of the places in the Black Hills that we took our children to see, when they were young. Evans Plunge is reputed to be the largest naturally heated, that is, Hot spring fed, pool in the world. Back in the day, we quite enjoyed it. Unfortunately, time has taken its toll, and we feel that... More

My family use to hit up Evan's Plunge on our yearly SD vacation, and I have very fond memories of all the fun my siblings and I had there. I got the chance to revisit this year with my 7 year old nephew and young cousins, and it was just as fun as I remembered. The pools were wonderful. Loads... More

Big, warm swimming pool with two big slides. The water is heated from a warm spring; the floor of the pool is covered with smooth stones. Hot-tubs and a steam room, too. It's neat to say you've been, but, it's essentially a big, warm swimming pool. So, sure: try it! Why not?

Hey, I was too lazy to swim there, but you can just go in to see this enormous swimming pool, continuously fed by springs and cycling every 90 minutes. Water slides are in place, and I think any family could spend a day there without difficulty.
