The Star Plunge
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 2, 2013

We've been coming to this pool for years and years. Indoor pool, outdoor pool, fun water slide, giant hot tub, steam room, girls and boys dressing/locker rooms, lots of sitting areas, snack bar, towel rental...you name it, they have it.

We spent a full day here with our four kids, 18, 18, 14 and 6. Everyone had a blast! The three water slides were a big hit with the kids of all ages. The water was a nice temperature and even though it was in the upper 90's outside, we still enjoyed the warm water.

Reading some of the other reviews I was expecting the place to be a dump, but it was clean and well kept. It isn't a fancy spa, but I would hardly call it run down. The locker rooms were clean and usable, even had a swim suit dryer. We liked the history of the place as well. The price is what I would expect and in line with other hot springs we have visited. We would visit again!

The area is surrounded by a park and a trail which are nice as well.

Grumpy, grumpy lifeguards! Nice counter girl. Next time think we'll try the Teepee next door. Smell was so strong it made our son sick. Might want to check before you head in.

This facility is really not worth your money. It is very old and run down and very poorly maintained. De inside slide is downright dangerous! It ends in a sort of concrete slab, with all loose concrete gravel which ruins your bathing suit and your skin (my husband had a big scratch on his back). The outside slide is kind off cool, but overall this place doesn't deserve your money, it needs a good restoration (or should be torned down completely, in Europe the Government would shut this place down).

We laugh at the less than good reviews for the Star Plunge. Come on folks, this place is over a hundred years old! Yes, it's funky, but that's the charm. Complaints such as: it's too expensive! Really? Visit other mineral pools scattered around the US and get back to me. It smells! Really? What natural hot spring doesn't? Rude employees? Sure, you'll run into them everywhere, call them on it, they'll respond. If they don't talk to the owner/manager.
We always "take the cure" once a year and enjoy coming to Thermop. This is not a luxury town so get over it! Enjoy the slow pace, the small shops and the average restaurants. The Star Plunge is a gem!
