We drove 40 minutes to enjoy the Hot Spring Pools at Cottonwood after being outdoors all day on a zip line. It was relaxing, clean, rustic, and friendly. The temperatures were great and we loved viewing the stars. The mineral water had no smell, unlike some hit springs we have visited. Changing rooms were nice with showers and toilets.

This place is quirky. The hotel and parking lot look a little rough, but don't be deterred. While the hot springs area exactly fancy, the pools are relaxing. Clientele was mostly 20/30-somethings, with a few elderly and one other family. The surrounding vegetation is nice, and the setting on the river is scenic, but the pools are slightly worn, and...

My son and I stopped by after a half day of kayaking down the lower Arkansas River and this felt good on my old bones. We only stayed a couple of hours and it wasn't very crowded and the springs felt nice.

We just went for the day. They had 5 pools, a couple had a sun cover to keep you from getting to much sun. They don't let you wear sunscreen ( except for your face). It was pretty nice.

We went about 10:30 with kids and it was very cool. Numerous pools with varying temperatures, nice people and just a great experience overall. The place is very close to Buena Vista so if you're staying there you could go and return as you get a wristband. Clean, relaxed and worth the money. We'll go back.

awesome setup with hot springs. The tent sites available were really small and one was full of puddles. so it you want to stay there, not in the tent section. its a real "granola"kind of place

As we creeped up the driveway you see an older building with a series of polls next to it. At this point you may be thinking of turning around. Don't. Get the private tub #3 and relax! It's very much worth it!

Plus side - hot pools were very relaxing, and the room was clean. Down side - They claim they are a non-smoking property, but people openly smoked in the parking lot, right above the office, and even in the hot pools!!!!! I complained to the office staff on four different occasions, but not once did they do anything about it;... More
