Hot Springs Like None Other

Soaking in Ouray’s natural hot spring waters has been a tradition for generations. Our hot waters begin deep in the mountains that surround Ouray, Colorado.

The intense heat of the subterranean geology, and the high pressures that accompany it, combine to push the waters to the surface at sites all along the Uncompahgre River in Ouray. As it bubbles up from the earth, the water is as hot at 140 degrees. It is this crystal clear and Sulphur-free water that makes Ouray one of the best places in the state to enjoy a soak.

The Ute tribe, the area’s original inhabitants, believed the land to be sacred. The hot waters present throughout the Valley were used for ceremonies and spiritual regeneration. With the coming of the miners in the 1870s, the Utes were forced from the land and their access to the sacred waters. However, the miners and the tourists that followed were happy to have access to the pleasures of hot water soaking, especially in the middle of winter.

Hot springs in Ouray is nearly synonymous with the Ouray Hot Springs pool. Our naturally hot Sulphur-free pool has been welcoming soakers and swimmers since 1927. A visit to the Hot Springs Pool is one of the must-do activities for both visitors and locals. It offers opportunities for kids of all ages to play, swim, or just soak the afternoon away. The best time for hot springs soaking--- a winter day with the snow coming down and the spectacular San Juan Mountains all around you.

Following extensive renovations in 2017, the Ouray Hot Springs pool reopened with a whole new look. Active pools with water slides and a climbing wall are separate from the lap pool and family friendly shallow pool. The most popular pool continues to be the hot soaking pool where temperatures range 100 to 106 degrees F. The continuously curving pool offers plenty of private soaking places.

Ouray Hot Springs Pool also has been included in Colorado’s Historic Hot Springs Loop. https://www.colorado.com/hotspringsloop This newly designated tour features five premier hot springs destinations in the western part of the state. Take the 720-mile Colorado Historic Hot Springs Loop, which showcases the hot springs in Glenwood Springs. Pagosa Springs, Steamboat Springs and Chafee County as well as Ouray.
