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.

Evan's Plunge is a natural hot spring with an indoor pool and water park featuring rings across the pool and 2 slides. They have an outside area with a slide as well but it is always closed by the first week of September when we go there. Our Scout Troop stop here almost every year. The boys love it. By... More

Online it said adults were $10. When we got there, the prices had increased to $12. No where on the website did it say you had to pay extra for the hot tub or for towels- we would have brought our own towels. I asked if my 6 year old granddaughter could go in the hot tub & they said... More

Hi Gaylynn. Thanks for your review. We appreciate your comments.

And our FAQ page on our website http://www.evansplunge.com/faq, does state: "What... More

I would say as far as swimming pools go this wasn't my fave ever. The slides are rough and seem almost dangerous as heavier sliders get really close to the edges and could possibly go over the sides. The pool sides are very high even though the pool is not very deep even at it's deepest point. The bottom is... More

Hi 2sweet4umarie! We are glad you enjoyed the outdoor pool. Our admission is good for all day so you can come and go as you please throughout the day; in fact, we encourage people to come swim, then go eat meals, visit other attractions, travel the Black Hills, and come back and relax in the pools at the end of...
