Interesting place to visit. On one hand, the history of the site and the fact that the water is so warm (seemed warmer than some indoor swimming pools at some of the motels I've stayed at) is very cool. On the other hand, some of the other reviews are spot on when they say that this place needs some serious... More

I was really disappointed in Evans Plunge. I had been there as a kid and loved the place, but it is in need of a serious capital investment. The bathrooms are dirty and need to be updated. The slides were fun, but they also need to be updated. The whole place needs to be updated. I would consider going back... More

The advertisements offered warm mineral springs of 87 degrees but the water was pretty cold. It was a fun place for a couple hours.

Hi jmcat, Thanks for your review! We're glad you had fun at Evans Plunge! Regarding water temperature, there are a variety of factors in play when it comes to the temperature. The largest spring itself that feeds most of Evans Plunge is located at the north end of the pool and the south end of the pool (around the rings)... More

this place was filthy, the front end staff are rude (we had asked for two towels, and they had non...the lady told us to come back and she would give us some for no charge. Went back to get towels and she said that she never said that and we would have to pay for towels). Garbage all over, no... More

When we first arrived in the early afternoon it was VERY busy. I thought we were going to have a very stressful time keeping our kids safe crammed shoulder to shoulder in the pool. However it didn't take long and the crowd "thinned out" some making it a much nicer experience. We ended up staying for about 4 hours and... More

There are many things to do at Evan's Plunge for hours of fun. Our children loved the 3 waterslides and being able to swing on the rope into the water. We were surprised when we realized that they had rocks on the bottom of the pool, which I am guessing is to keep the natural feel of the hot springs.... More

Rope swings, water slides, warm water and swimming. This is a historic landmark and worth your time. Our 7 yr old really enjoyed the rope swing. Hot Springs doesn't have much to offer but this place is great.

We visited this attraction on an afternoon when there were thunderstorms in the area so the outside area was closed. It cost us $61 to get in the door as we opted to pay an extra $3.50 per person to use the hot tub. The hot tub was a 6 man hot tub like most people have in their back... More

We drove to Evans Plunge from Keystone just for something extra fun for the kids (5 & 9 year old) and the adults ended up having just as much fun. We loved the slides especially the outdoor one! The rope swing was fun and the husbands tried to show each other up on the ring challenge. Not the cleanest locker... More
