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.
