“Feels great after a day outside!”

Glenwood Hot Springs Pool
Certificate of Excellence

Attraction details
Owner description: Located between Aspen and Vail, you'll find the World's Largest Hot Springs Pool. The Ute Indians called it Yampah, meaning "big medicine." Soothe your muscles after outdoor activities year round. The large pool is kept at a comfortable 90°- 93° F and the smaller therapy pool averages about 104° F. Additional amenities include a lodge, spa, athletic club, grill and shopping. Relieve muscle and joint pain, or just relax and feel the wonder of a soak in our hot springs. Soaking in hot, highly concentrated mineral water has many health benefits. Increasing body temperature helps the body naturally kill harmful germs and viruses, eliminate toxins, and increase blood flow. The absorbtion of essential minerals gives the body a natural boost. You will feel the difference within minutes of stepping in. Jump in the large pool, at over 400 feet long, and "cool down." Swim laps or practice your form on the diving board. Water slides, mini golf, and kiddie pool are available in the warmer months. Bring your own cooler and snacks, or stop by the poolside Grill to grab a bite.

“Feels great after a day outside!”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

We went during the last hour (they were open until 10pm) and it cost a little over $11. When I first walked in it look like a huge pool but looking closer it was made if stone and super warm! The pool wasn't not empty but not crowded and everyone was staying until closing :-)
We spent a short amount of time but we felt great!!
Bring a towel, as I'm told you will get charged if you need one. And 0.25 for the lockers.

“Super fun, but be ready to fork out cash”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

This is one of our favorite things to do. We are only 5 hours away, so usually make the trip two or three times a year. Our favorite time to go is winter mornings. Very few people are there, and you feel like you get the pool to yourself. I love when it is snowing or raining. So Fun! We don't like to go at night. The crowd is teenage boyfriends/girlfriends. Not our favorite. The summers are crowded, but fun. I would recommend planning a 4 hour stay to try and get your money's worth. Watch your little ones close, the life guards seem distracted, and there aren't that many of them. I haven't ever found a coupon to this pool.

“Great hot springs, BUT EXPENSIVE”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

It is hard to imagine traveling to Glenwood Springs and not stopping at the hot springs pool - lile going to Washington DC and not seeing the White House. It is expensive, and it can be crowded, but if yiou have the ability to plan for an early morning arrival - the pool opens at 7:30a - I think you will enjoy it. The crowds increase rapidly as the day progresses, so claim your spot early and hang out. The entrance fee allows you to leave and return if you want a full day experience. The north side of the pool has a shaded area with lounge chairs, which is the premier spot but it won't be available for long. There are also very large trees and a wonderful green lawn that you can spread towels on and relax, but is a few steps farther from the water. The water slides for the kids are extra $ and don't open until 10a. I saw complaints about the sulfur smell, but compared to other natural hot springs, it is inconsequential, and remember, this is a natural pool, not a chlorinated, heated water. The grille opens at 7:30a and provided a very economical and freshly prepared breakfast that we loved. The locker/restrooms were large and clean. My recommendation - do it.

“If you're looking for a greed ridden tourist trap, this pool's for you.”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

Our July, 2014 visit proved a big failure due to relatively high charges and the potential unsafe pool conditions. Could we adults lounge while our children swam? Yes... Adult SITTING prices range from $12 - $20. Could we feel comfortable with two lifeguards working? NO! My husband is a licensed lifeguard trainer and immediately noticed one life guard walking the deck (half the swimmers to his back) and one other solitary guard. Greedy up-charges for empty water slides made for a dreary, uninviting feature...Much family friendly excellence in Glenwood Springs... Simply not here!

“hot springs pool”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

once you get over the sulfur small, it's very relaxing, but either get there early or got late in the day - it's gets very crowded and $20 to get in seemed overpriced unless you spend the whole day there
