After a long day traveling we hit the pool. The history of the pool makes up for it being a little rough around the edges. The slides are pretty fast and it was great to lie out in the sun. We did not try the spa but it looked good. If you're in the area it's a must!

I checked out Evans Plunge with my mom and toddler while staying in Hot Springs, SD. We were glad that we had stopped. The fees were...10 dollars for adults, 9 dollars for seniors age 62 and up, and toddlers were free. The health club was also free for seniors. Yes, the water temperature was that of a warm swimming pool,... More

Evan's Plunge was a wonderful relief from our travels. We stopped in Hot Springs specifically for Evan's Plunge. Although the facility inside looks a bit dated we had a blast in the naturally warm water. My husband successfully triumphed over the rings across the pool. The pool has a smooth rock bottom which is different. There was the slide, basketball,... More

My I went with my mother and 6-year-old daughter on the 4th of July, and we had a blast. The last time I had taken my daughter was when she was 1. She also enjoyed that visit, but this time she could do the waterslides. This was her first time on a waterslide. She did the inside slide first a... More

I had read some reviews and was a bit worried about going here but we had a good time. It was clean and the water was warm. We went on a very hot day and in the afternoon but it was not too crowded. We were able to enjoy everything, the slide in the 3 foot section was perfect for... More

We were drawn by the novelty, of a mineral water pool, especially after a long day of driving. The pool was nice, but the changing area and bathrooms looked run down. The customer service was nonexistent. Employees seemed more interested in chatting with each other than helping customers. When I asked where the changing room was the employee was a... More

An indoor and an outdoor pool, with 3 waterslides. Also a pool basketball court, a ring swing over the water. The bottom of the pool is large river stones, which seems strange at first, but it is surprisingly comfortable on your feet, and it allows the pool to be fed from the natural spring. You notice then that the water... More

We got our money's worth, it was nice not smelling like choline. Bring your own towels, we had to pay for them. The bathrooms were not great, it had a dirty feel to the place.
