“True mountain R&R”
Reviewed November 22, 2013

Beautiful drive there along a dirt road in Aspen heaven, especially while the trees were changing colors. It took us a while driving out because we stopped so many times for some gorgeous photo shots! Bathrooms are available as well as a rustic cabin-style changing room (unisex) with three small stalls covered by a barely-fitting curtain. The whole setting to us was just serene, and the hot pools were absolutely perfect temperatures. Do bring some water bottles, camera and sandals or water shoes as they do help if you have sensitive feet on the rocky bottom. Or consider it a free foot massage!

“Interesting adventure”
Reviewed November 6, 2013

Maybe if I were still young and single I would have rated the Strawberry Park Natural Hot Springs higher...maybe not. We were in Steamboat for two days and decided to check out the hot springs. After driving along a very long, deserted, and unpaved road into the middle of nowhere we finally made it to the Springs. The check-in guy seemed nice, although the basket of dirty towels and other items laying around didn't leave me with a good feeling. When he mentioned clothing optional after dark, I couldn't help but think about what went on in the hot springs--argg! We (myself, husband and two kids--9 and 12) decided to give it a shot since we were already there and it was still daylight. It was beautiful. Several pools of varying warmth and beautiful flowers. A drawback, other than the after dark visual that I couldn't get out of my head, was the sharp stones along the walls of the pools and the stairs-- very easy to get cut. Also the stairs and sides of the pools were very slimy. We didn't stay long. I heard from several people in town that they drain the pools and clean them weekly. Definitely not a family destination in my opinion. Better left to the single crowd

“Go During the Day”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

We went twice, both during the day. It wasn't too crowded and no one was rowdy or inappropriate.
The springs are nice and hot, with the hottest 106 degrees. Changing rooms were under repair, so
we changed in the bathroom. There are no lights at night, so it could be quite dangerous, especially on the stairs or getting into the pools. The pools are slippery, so Tevas or the equivalent are recommended.

“Ahhhh!”
Reviewed October 22, 2013 via mobile

It's worth the trip up a crazy drive. Yes it is a bit on the rustic side. But if you go prelared the pools are great.

“Great, natural hot springs”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

This is up in the mountains and you can enjoy the aspens changing colors and it was very peaceful and relaxing since it is out of town. Try a dip in the cold pool and if you can last more than 30 seconds I would be surprised....your feet start getting numb after about 5 seconds.
