I visit valley View Hot spring once a year for the past 6 years. The staff is pleasant and location is prime. The San Luis Valley is beautiful and you get nice views from the soaking Ponds. My favorite is the pool!!! Nothing like a naked back flip off the diving board into the pool at night under a meteor... More

Went for the day. Paid a fee and was explained the grounds and rules. The views were fantastic and remarkable. The clothing optional was not an issue. there are snacks you can buy, but bring a towel because they normally do not provide. We wished we had camping gear to camp, but did not. Next time we plan on staying... More

I am rarely impressed by most hot springs due to layout of the grounds, noise, overcrowding and other aspects. I am, however, greatly impressed with Valley View Hot Springs. It offers almost everything a Colorado camper could need. It is family friendly; it is quietly busy and offers opportunities for socialization or solitude. The hot springs are fairly easily accessed... More

Great! Great natural hot springs, and clothing optional is a plus. Smoking is only allowed at the smoking hut, but Marijuana smoking is allowed. This place is my favorite to visit on vacation in Co. If you like to naked and enjoy nature this is the place to visit.

This is no longer a Hot Springs! Something has changed, and now the water is around 97 degrees: nice for daytime soaking (on a warm day). They have to electrically heat the water for the two newest tubs (wonderful rock work) to only 104, which get crowded (and lots of beer drinking). The camping is delightful, but when we rented...

The waterfall pool was lovely and not crowded. Top pools were heavily used. Be ready for a short steep climb to the top pools but the view was wonderful! All kinds of naked people walking around and so ubiquitous that it wasn't a problem at all. If you want to wear a swimsuit you'll feel fine doing that too.

Valley View Hot Springs has become Orient Land Trust, a nature preserve supported by camping fees. There are several pools of natural hot water for soaking and partying. Clothing optional on the grounds and in the pools. Community kitchen facilities. Sauna. Rooms for rent. deer wandering about among the campers. A joyous restful Colorado vacation.

The first time you visit you are overwhelmed by the rustic environment, beautiful scenery, and the healthy nudity. I traveled solo this time, my wife and kids did not attend.

Stayed for 4 nights in the Aspen cabin. The accommodations were rustic but adequate. A double bed with a night stand, small refrigerator and a small table and chairs. It had a large community kitchen where everyone gathered to cook and eat. The main draw were the hot springs and the view. We enjoyed soaking in the hot springs. There... More
