You won’t find many soaking experiences as serene and lovely as a visit to Strawberry Park Hot Springs in the hills above Steamboat Springs in northwest Colorado. Surrounded by pristine forest and impeccably landscaped, this hot springs is a true Colorado gem. The pools are all centrally located, so bathers can hop from pool to pool easily. Visitors can camp or stay in a rustic cabin or even in a renovated train caboose. Bathing suits are required until dusk, but when the sun sets all bets are off.
Recommended season(s): The hot springs is open year-round.
