Kids loved the challenge rings across the mineral pool, the swinging ring, and basketball. I opted for the Spa package and enjoyed the hot tub,sauna and steam room. Nice to have the option to swim indoors or outdoors. We stayed there about 7 hours and didnt get bored.

Took the family of 4 here while staying in Hot Springs. The price is cheap and they offer a 25% discount if you show them that you're staying in town. There's a couple waterslides, sections for infants, young children, adult lap swimmers and for the rest who want some fun. The water is warm, as advertised, and the staff is... More

We went to Evan's Plunge with a group of eleven youth, ages 14 to 18, and four adults. This followed a week of volunteer construction work on the Pine Ridge Reservation, The Plunge was part of our "fun day" before heading for back home to Wisconsin. Evan's Plunge was the favorite activity of the day, behind go-karting, a cave tour,... More

The plunge is a very large hot springs fed pool. About 83 degrees. There are 2 indoor and 1 outdoor slides. There's a ring to swing on and drop in the water. There are rings to go hand to hand over the water. If you can't make it drop into the water. You can shoot basketball or swim laps. The... More

This place seemed very fun and one of the attractions we chose not to miss based on the brochures about it. Brochures do not tell the complete story! I actually hope it gets closed down or bought by different owners before a terrible accident happens. Lifeguards here do NOT watch the guests and warn them when they are doing something... More

I will, however, at least pass along your comments to our management so they can work with all... More

Had read a few reviews that were not very good and almost did not go. So glad we did. It is old but I found everything very clean and in good repair. Grandkids had so much fun. Lots of things to do. We stayed in town so got 25% off admission fees with motel bill. We had brought our own... More

We heard about Evans plunge around town so we figured we should try it. The history was amazing but the people seemed nice. Was not that busy could move around freely. Was a little pricey since we are both adult without children.

We definitely have to agree that the history of Evans Plunge is amazing and we're glad our staff made a good impression. Regarding price, so that others know, current admission is $12 for adults.
