Glenwood Hot Springs Pool
Certificate of Excellence
More attraction details
Attraction details
Owner description: Located between Aspen and Vail, you'll find the World's Largest Hot Springs Pool. The Ute Indians called it Yampah, meaning "big medicine." Soothe your muscles after outdoor activities year round. The large pool is kept at a comfortable 90°- 93° F and the smaller therapy pool averages about 104° F. Additional amenities include a lodge, spa, athletic club, grill and shopping. Relieve muscle and joint pain, or just relax and feel the wonder of a soak in our hot springs. Soaking in hot, highly concentrated mineral water has many health benefits. Increasing body temperature helps the body naturally kill harmful germs and viruses, eliminate toxins, and increase blood flow. The absorbtion of essential minerals gives the body a natural boost. You will feel the difference within minutes of stepping in. Jump in the large pool, at over 400 feet long, and "cool down." Swim laps or practice your form on the diving board. Water slides, mini golf, and kiddie pool are available in the warmer months. Bring your own cooler and snacks, or stop by the poolside Grill to grab a bite.

I can never move away from Glenwood Springs because no other town has a pool like this! Jump in and join the fun.

“Best Therapy ever”
Reviewed July 17, 2013

We went to the hot springs pool for the first time. We waited until after 6pm to get the discount. The place was fantastic on old bones. We first started with the 90 degree pool to just get used to it. It was clean, people friendly and the best part was it was sooooo relaxing. Our joints after a 2000 mile road trip were screaming and this was just the ticket. Our teens loved it also, it is a bit pricey for the slides, but they were not interested in that. They loved putting a single quarter in to one of the bubbling chairs, they did that off and on til the pool closes. (how cheap, and a great relaxing time) We brought our own towels, our own water to drink, and aside from the quarters for the chairs and the entrance fee, thought it was a good experience. We also sat in the 104 degree pool for a bit, loved the whole experience and went twice. Loved swimming in a warm pool at dusk surrounded by the mountains, what an experience for the 4 of us flat-landers. Would come again, and here is a tip, go after 6pm, you save $2 bucks a person and you swim some during the day, and some at night.

I went to this pool three times during our two week stay in Carbondale area. The main pool is the most popular. It is devoid of shade except in the grassy areas, so find a tree to stay cool, as it can get quite hot in the afternoon. They have a per ride water slide, a diving board, and lap lanes too. For the most fun be there when it opens, before the crowds swamp the place. Bring an ice chest with cans, no bottles allowed, and you can bring your own food too. Lockers are $.50. They do have bubble chairs in the hottest pool, but no jets. I would pass on them.

“My favorite part of our trip at Glenwood Springs!”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

My body melted in the warm - not hot- mineral waters. The temperature was just right! There is another section that offers more of a hot tub experience with jets for .25 . We also got massages at the adjacent spa! So relaxing!
