Private Soaking Pools
The private pools are available anytime we are open! Please see our calendar.
Enjoy soaking in privacy in our hot mineral spring water, collected underground and piped 8 miles from the source high in the majestic Rocky Mountains. This sparkling clear and odorless water was originally enjoyed by the Ute Indians, who believed it healed mind, body and spirit. The hot mineral spring water flows continually into the various Salida Hot Springs pools, refreshing and warming them naturally.
Minerals in the water include: Silica (54.1 ppm), Aluminum Iron Oxide (1.7 ppm), Sulphate (207.4 ppm), Calcium (19.7 ppm), Bicarbonate (223.1 ppm), Potassium (16.5 ppm), Chloride (57.4 ppm) and Sodium (108.5 ppm). After every use, each private soaking pool is drained, sanitized and yours to refill with fresh chemical free water as hot as you wish.
Reservations are not required, but highly recommended, and can be made at the pool or by calling 719-539-6738. All reservations must be paid in advance. If you cancel your reservation at least 24 hours before your scheduled time, we will refund your money minus a five dollar processing fee. If your reservation is not cancelled within this time period, or you fail to show up, you will not be given a refund.
Come relax and unwind; escape and enjoy the therapeutic value of our natural water.
