It's always a good day for a soak in the clear warm waters of the Ouray Hot Springs Pool! The hot springs of Ouray have been enjoyed since at least the 14th century when native Ute Indians used the naturally hot clear water for healing. Settlers came to the area in the late 1800's in search of gold and precious minerals, and many found comfort in the natural hot springs. The current swimming pool was constructed in the 1920's and has been a favorite destination ever since. Seven different springs supply the pool with water. At the source some of this water is 150 degrees! The pool consists of several sections maintained at different temperatures for different tastes. The hot section is approximately 104 degrees, and a soaking section, perfect for families and prolonged soaking, is typically 95 degrees, or so. The lap lanes and deep section are usually about 80 degrees in the summer and fall, and cooler than that in the winter months when there is snow on the ground. The Ouray Hot Springs Swimming Pool is an outdoor pool open all year. Many people enjoy the pool the most in the winter, after a day spent ice climbing, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, skating on the local ice rink (skates are available to rent at the Hot Springs Pool), or simply as a place to relax and enjoy the splendid scenery of the San Juan Mountains.

This is a great pool for small children. Water is so warm and shallow depth for soaking. Fun slides and activity area also. Highly recommend.

After the renovations, the pool is even better. 360 degrees views, several temperature options, great new slides, just a crowded bathroom. The building is yet to be renovated, which they are going to do, but the pool options are great! Not a ton of lounge...More

I visited the pool with my family, including my 3 and 6-year-old children, and we all loved the pools. We were in Ouray for 3 nights, so the first night we visited the hot springs and bought the 10 visit punch pass, knowing we planned...More

If you have young children you are only allowed in 3 pools. Slides cost extra on the already ridiculous prices. If you can stay at a hotel with their own hot springs, do so, worth it not dealing with the crowds!

Went in the evening as it was packed during the day time hours. Lifeguard says 2000 people per day. When we were there may have been 75-100 as we went at 830 pm.

We come every year and the remodeling made it much nicer. The only negative is the new water slides are expensive. I would think with what they charge to get in the hot springs it would be included

Just at the end of Main St a short walk from any and all the hotels in Ouray. Pools were ok.... and the setting absolutely stunning, but don't for "His" sake try diving off any of the diving platforms or you'll be told off ......More

When we were there last year they allowed us to bring in lunch and drinks. They do not allow glass containers for obvious reasons. Adults are $12 a day or you can buy punch passes and save some money to go on multiple days... More
