“Great place to relax”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

Lava is such a cool little town. Good place for families and for the younger bar going crowd. Something for everyone. Lots of fun shops, you can float the river in the summer, go to the swimming pools or relax in the hot pools. Great atmosphere.

“Great water!”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

We always have a relaxing time when we visit Lava's hot pools. They are beautiful, well maintained and there are several pools with varying degrees of water. Plus there is no sulfer smell in the water!

“A very nice break from driving”
Reviewed 6 April 2014

A highly recommended stop on your drive between Salt Lake City and Jackson. Simple, clean, inexpensive, convenient. A slightly larger temperature spread between pools would be nice but that's a very minor complaint. And if you are really into thermal waters, there's a number of lodging options nearby.

“Amazing As Always!”
Reviewed 2 April 2014

Been coming to the Hot Pools pretty much my entire life. The most recent visit was with my husband on a weekend getaway. Love the different pools and different temperatures, very relaxing and definitely worth the visit.
