Highly recommend a nice soak in the outdoors after a day of skiing, MTB, hiking etc...Or just go for a soak. Unfortunately, dressing rooms are a bit tight for the crowd that is welcome. They do keep the count down but it still can get a bit crowded. No private rooms. Beautiful views.

A Good Introduction to a Hot Spring and Mineral Water Soak First, this is not cheap at $10 per person. And, it's not very “natural” in that it's two man-made swimming pools, one with cool water and the other a “natural” warm pool. But, it's also less “commercial” than some of the others. There are locker rooms for you to... More

I have been to over 100 hot springs in this country,and this is not one of my favorites.free flowing natural hot water does not need chlorine.You might as well put a hot tub in your backyard if you like chlorin

Bathing suits available if you forgot yours. Located in a snowy valley--first we took a hike up the valley in the snow to a frozen water fall, then came down and luxuriated in the hot pool.

We came thru here on our ride down Hwy 395. What a great stop! Yes, the mineral pool is green, but it's a mineral pool. The cool pool felt great after a nice, long soak. I like the way the control the amount of people allowed in. Granted, we went about 11am so no big crowds but you could see... More

We did not camp here, though camping is available. We just came for a visit to the hot springs. Do not expect it to be rustic. For health and safety reasons the springs are fed into two swimming pools, one hot and one cool. The hot pool is great on cooler days, and if you want to play (kids?) in... More

The hot springs are perfect for relaxing the tired muscles after a long hike. While the pool complex was a bit crowded, it was still a welcome respite for us tired hikers. We enjoyed hopping from the hot pool to the cold pool immensely. The Hot Springs Valley is beautiful and picturesque, and surrounded by 9,000+ ft. peaks. We took... More

We stayed in both sites 24 and 70 with a 25ft travel trailer. Both sites were ideal for hanging a hammock and fairly level. We were able to stay hooked on in 24 but needed to unhook in 70. The truck barely fit with the trailer at 70. Both sites had nice meadow space. The restroom near 24 had showers... More

We first came here ~25 years ago when our kids were little, and we did a lot of car camping. Now we're empty nesters coming back for a bit of nostalgia, and we were not disappointed. Admission was raised to $10 for adults, which gives you in/out privileges for the day. Because it's shoulder season, it wasn't crowded, and there... More

I've been coming to Grover Hot Springs since I was a kid, and nothing much has changed, except for the entry fees. This is a great hot spring destination for families. They have a large shallow soaking hot pool that is feed by "treated" hot spring water, and a cold water swimming pool, which is great for the kids who... More
