Our family was staying in Colorado Springs on a vacation. Our waiter, one night, suggested the hot springs in Salida. We drove two hours and enjoyed beautiful vistas along the way. However, when we arrived at the pool we realized it was just a municipal pool - that hapened to be full of warm water sourced from the hot springs nearby. It was divided in three sections and kids were in all three - using water cannons and playing volleyball. Adults looking for a peaceful soak will be disappointed. My kids had a blast but said it wasn't worth the long drive. The reason I am giving it 3 stars is the lifeguarding was atrocious. Every lifeguard except one young man was barely watching the water and was ignoring blatant dangerous behavior even when it happened right in front of them.
