Water fresh from the earth fills a huge pool for community use. Fun warm shallow pools for everyone from kids to seniors. Good for arthritis and improves your mood. Great community resource--clean and well staffed.

The Salida hot springs are actually owned by the city and it's a great way to spend an afternoon in Salida if you need something peaceful to do.

The soaking pools are not as fancy as some of the larger hot springs but for $9 I would not expect then to be. Not worth a special trip but a good place to visit if you are in the area for several days. The...More

We soaked in the Hot Springs pool after fishing the Arkansas River. Although the pool is designed mostly for swimming, one end of the pool is quiet and shallow enough to soak your bones. This end of the pool has several hotter inlets, but the...More

This park is directly across the street from Super 8 motel which I stayed over night. I'll start the review by saying the young man working at the store down the street said the 'dog park' was a block away. First, this park doesn't allow...More

I wouldn't exactly call it a "hot" springs. I was expecting there would at least be a small pool of truly hot water, but everything is just kind of warm. Maybe the private rooms have the really hot stuff? The lifeguards seem a little overbearing....More

There are two pools....the smaller pool for younger kids and for parents with tots and soaking is right around 99 degrees. The lap pool, which is larger is kept between 86 and 89 degrees. It also has the diving board... More
