“granite falls is a treasure”
Reviewed July 13, 2013

Granite falls is unbelievable. Snow covered mountains and you sitting in a very comfortable water. I live in florida near warm mineral springs, north port, fl, not even comparable to the beauty of wyoming. Mountains, water, good friends, the road is beautiful, the river from granite falls is spectacular and we saw elk, moose, bear, big horn sheep, everything you would want to see on the dirt road to the pool. I agree, there are not many places like this left, it has a few necessities, changing house and someone full time on site to pay, answer questions and take care of area. Nice time for all. Highly reccomend.

“Looooooooong drive”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

Is it worth it or not??? Here is my verdict... First of all, it's a long dirt drive (I mean seriously loooooong). The view along the way is amazing. The swimming pool is very small. No shower area. It needs a lot of patience if you plan to go here..... 3/5 for me.

“The Thing Thant " Makes It " Is The Setting!”
Reviewed July 4, 2013

There are not many places like this left. I went there as a kid, and my kids went with us and now we take the grandchildren! The hot water runs out of the mountain and the setting is beautiful. You do have to drive ten miles up the dirt road(yes), but there will be others there!

“OK if you're not accustomed to water activities elsewhere.”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

Look closely at the pictures. It is a natural spring coming out of the mountain which would be really cool if it wasn't damned up into a really tacky man-made swimming pool, although not sure how else they could have done it. It is small. It seemed a bit creepy with middle aged men lounging at the opposite end of the pool anticipating the disrobing of swimmers, yuck. We didn't go in. Instead chose to play in Granite Falls a few hundred yards away which was gorgeous, fun and no fee. Your GPS will not get you there. Call the phone number for a long recorded message with precise directions. It's about an hour driving time from Jackson. Scenic.

“Not easy to find, but worth it”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

This is not a difficult drive on the gravel/dirt road in the summer. It does have lots of twists and turns. The pool is about 92 degrees in the summer (warmer in the winter). There are no concessions or anything so you'll want to bring your own snacks and drinks (no alcohol is allowed). It's odd to have to get out of the pool to cool off. There are changing rooms but the bathrooms are down the hill from the pool. This was a great little adventure! I think admission was $6 for adults and $4 for kids (don't remember the ages).
