Overview

It's always a good day for a soak in the clear warm waters of the Ouray Hot Springs Pool! The hot springs of Ouray have been enjoyed since at least the 14th century when native Ute Indians used the naturally hot clear water for healing. Settlers came to the area in the late 1800's in search of gold and precious minerals, and many found comfort in the natural hot springs. The current swimming pool was constructed in the 1920's and has been a favorite destination ever since. Seven different springs supply the pool with water. At the source some of this water is 150 degrees! The pool consists of several sections maintained at different temperatures for different tastes. The hot section is approximately 104 degrees, and a soaking section, perfect for families and prolonged soaking, is typically 95 degrees, or so. The lap lanes and deep section are usually about 80 degrees in the summer and fall, and cooler than that in the winter months when there is snow on the ground. The Ouray Hot Springs Swimming Pool is an outdoor pool open all year. Many people enjoy the pool the most in the winter, after a day spent ice climbing, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, skating on the local ice rink (skates are available to rent at the Hot Springs Pool), or simply as a place to relax and enjoy the splendid scenery of the San Juan Mountains.

A great place to go in late afternoon and watch the sun go down over the mountains while relaxing in the hot waters. Lots of families so beware but if you look hard enough you’ll find a quiet place to chill!

For families with young kids this seems like a no-brainer place to spend an afternoon. It’s pricey, though, for what is essentially just a bunch of pools. $18 for adults and kids, ages 4–12, are $12 but if the kids want to ride the slides...More

We visited here after a long day off jeeping. It was very relaxing. I liked that they had different temperature pools to try out. They were beautiful!
