Glenwood Hot Springs is famous for its enormous outdoor swimming pool—at about four hundred feet long by one hundred feet wide, it’s the largest hot springs pool on the planet! Enjoy swimming, soaking, bubble chairs, diving boards, and two slides: an inner tube slide called Avalanche Falls and a body slide called Shoshone Chute. For hotter soaks, settle into the four-foot deep Therapy Pool, while the kids enjoy the seasonal, two-foot deep Kiddie Pool. Day soakers are welcome at this commercial hot spring, or you can spend the night at the onsite, one hundred and seven room lodge. A luxury spa, restaurant, apparel shop and athletic center provide lots of distractions between soaks. For ADA folks, there are lifts for the big pool and the therapy pool. Alcohol, smoking, and glass containers are not allowed in the pool area.
Recommended season(s): Year-round.
