Used these old, wonderful hot springs one afternoon and the next morning. The unique horseshoe shaped cave makes this place one of a kind. Water is very hot and air very humid in cave. There is a warm pool, a hot spa, and cold plunge....More

This is our fifth time coming back to Ainsworth Hot Springs. The renovations they have done are amazing. We ate at the restaurant which was also renovated. It is beautiful but not quite as good as the old restaurant food. Service was a little slower....More

We were on a weekend retreat and stopped by the hot springs. We found the facility clean, but a little crowded. The "cave" was interesting and novel. The outer pool was a little underwhelming and akin to a regular pool. A nice stop while on...More

Loved the cave part which holds a lot of the natural heat in. The regular pool is a great temperature too. Beautiful mountain views from main pool.

The place is interesting. Hot water in the cave. Near the icy little pool. I recommend to dip in it after hot water, not forgotten. A great place, but a lot of people and awful dressing rooms. Small and not designed for so many visitors.
