“Worst hot springs I have been to.”

Warm Mineral Springs

Attraction details
Owner description: At a temperature of 87 degrees, Warm Mineral Springs contains 9 million gallons of fresh water which replenishes itself every two hours. This natural resource is comprised of 51 minerals, which is the highest mineral content of any natural spring in the United States. The spring has been added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places partly because it is one of the most important underwater archeological sites in America. During exploratory dives in the 1950s, the remains of a prehistoric hunter and seven other humans were discovered in a very well preserved state. Similarly, evidence of several creatures have been extracted from the spring, including saber tooth tigers, giant sloths, tortoises, and even camels. Today, with a goal of increased wellness for everyone, Warm Mineral Springs offers a natural experience to residents and visitors alike who want to soak in the warm waters.

Reviewed 15 April 2014

Far too expensive. Really $20+-, many I have been too have been free like they should be. Run down facilities. Won't go back.

I believe this spring is now closed. There was plenty of parking and the spring is right off the Tamiami Trail.
When you entered the smell would knock you over sort of a sulfer smell. As I remember it was pretty expensive for a one day pass.
Many of the locals who live there would purchase a resident pass.
So, at present the city of North Port is deciding whether to purchase the spring or let it go to developers.
It simply needs a complete revamping.

“Fabulous ”
Reviewed 16 February 2014 via mobile

Authentic old Florida. Over the years the facilities got tacky, but the local government takeover did a nice job improving the experience. My only disappointment was promising my friends who I invited to WS borsch for lunch. Let's start a campaign to get this place back!

“Warm Mineral Springs. wish it were open”
Reviewed 15 February 2014

It's important that Warm Mineral Springs be reopened. Sarasota County and the city of Northport have to find a way. I didn't expect much of the springs, but for at least 2 weeks after I was there, none of my arthritis bothered me. Being there was a wonderful experience.

Very disappointing to here the park is closed, glad I went on line to verify where I was going, was more than willing to pay the fee and make the 2 hour drive, the city could charge at least $20 a person and it would certainly bring revenue and tourism, unbelievable wow.
