The Crater needs to be cleaned after each use. There was garbage in the water. Floating empty Gatorade bottle, toy dolphin and used band aid. To top it off a used excreted bloody tampon. SUPER FUN!

We went snorkeling in the hot springs, but you can also just do regular swimming or scuba diving. I have always wanted to go snorkeling, but unfortunately there was not much to see. It was quite fun, but after about half an hour you get bored. Very important to know is that you are required to wear a life vest at all times

What a unique one-of-a-kind experience! This is a DON"T MISS if you are in the Park City area! The crystal clear deep blue hot spring mineral water is amazing. The temp (around 90) is perfect so you don't get too hot or too cold. The whole experience is very soothing and your skin feels great afterward. They do make you wear life jackets the whole time, so can't see the purpose of renting their mask/snorkel. There is nothing in the water to see anyway. Don't miss walking up to the top of the crater, the steps are on the opposite side of the crater entrance. You have a real sense of the crater's size, and the views of the mountains and valley are amazing The operators of the crater do a fine job of limiting the number of guests per time slot, so we never felt crowded while in the crater. We were here in summer, so no problem coming already in your bathing suit and leaving with wet heads. There are changing rooms inside the crater but those are best used for after your soak, as you are not allowed into the crater until your designated time slot and you would use up time better spent in the water!

Go here if you want to get COVID. We left after soaking for about 10 minutes. By the time we were leaving, there were at least 35 people in the crater (it's not very big) and more were being shuffled in. It would be too crowded even if there wasn't a pandemic. It's so unfortunate a natural landmark is allowed to be privately owned and capitalized upon - such practice ruins the natural beauty and has turned it into a janky, overrun tourist attraction. I recommend you don't go out of your way to visit it.

I had the pleasure of diving with my 10 year old Grandson, days after I certified him as a Junior Open Water Diver. We had heard about the crater and wanted to dive it will on a quick trip to Utah from Az. While the water was warm, it still wasn’t as hot as an Az pool. Water was clear, staff very professional and the set up was easy for entrance and exits from the water. Was the perfect spot for him to work on buoyancy and have fun with his Mom, Dad and brothers. Would love to dive it during the winter. We will definitely be back.
