Just returned from a three over-night stay. We went in August for two nights and couldn't wait to go back again.

First, this is not where you want to go if you are looking for a super spa experience. The cabins are very basic as are the bath-houses for over-nighters, the beds are small (full size) and rock hard, you bring your own bedding, the road and parking area are tough on backsides and car suspensions, and they don't accept plastic. To make a reservation you have to call the very busy office, ask about the dates you want, and when you get a thumbs up, write a note with the dates and your info and send it with a check stat.

And it is completely worth it. Overnight guests can access the pools from first light to midnight. In fact, on Thursday, Sept 8, we found that we had stayed in the pools (alone) until almost one am talking, stretching, mooning (both literally and figuratively since there was a large moon and we were also au naturel) and nobody bothered us. Pool admission, parking inside the facility, a propane grill, and a bazillion stars are included in the cabin fee

There are two large chest deep pools, a medium-sized pool, small cubbies for two, and Soda Creek access at several points where some of the hot spring water is diverted so getting into the cold creek is not too big a shock to the system. There are also plenty of chairs and lounges and many are secluded. Bring food. The only food we saw for sale were snow-cones back in August.

Just two tips. Bring lots of water and drink it or you will get dehydrated. And keep any food/snacks in a sturdy plastic cooler. When we were there in August we saw chunky squirrels dashing off with Costco-sized bags of nuts when the nuts' owners were in the pools. It was pretty funny, but I don't think the lady who had a hole chewed in her expensive handbag found it amusing.

And one more tip if you're not from Colorado. SPF 70 is your friend.

What a wonderful place to visit while in SS!! Especially for us adults with no young children, as we went in the evening when there are no kids allowed. Unfortunately, we didn't get to SEE much of the place, since we got there when it was already dark out, and there is no lighting except for a few dim path lights down the hill to the pools. (Swimwear is optional at night, so the darkness lends to the privacy) We tried to get there earlier in the evening, but if you use a Garmin GPS to find it, good luck!! It kept telling us we were there when we weren't even close, so we kept turning around on the horrible access road trying to find it!! ( Just keep going, the road ends there) Once we got there, it was $20 for the two of us, and they had a very nice bathroom to change in. Finding our way down into the pools was tricky, but once we did, it was delightful! From what we found in the dark, there were a couple big pools and a couple small ones, but maybe there is more. The water was hotter in some than others, and there were quite a few people in them, but it was quiet and peaceful. I'm sure it would be even better in the winter!

The owner of Strawberry Park has done an amazing job with designing the park. I had gone a few times many years ago and there wasn't much there but then. Now the park has been redesigned with lush scenary. We had an amazing time and met several interesting folks from all over the world. Don't miss this spot!

This hotspring was very pretty. There was a fairly minimal cost to enter. There were bathrooms and refreshments available. It was about 4-5 hotsprings of different temperatures...so something for everyone. I would not spend the extra money on transport to the hotsprings, unless you visit it in the winter. It was a pretty picture sight, and a great place for a family to visit in the daylight hours.
