The hot springs of Ouray have been enjoyed since at least the 14th century when native Ute Indians used the naturally hot cl...ear water for healing. Settlers came to the area in the late 1800's in search of gold and precious minerals, and many found comfort in the natural hot springs.

The current swimming pool was constructed in the 1920's and has been a favorite destination ever since. Seven different springs supply the pool with water. At the source some of this water is 150 degrees! The pool consists of several sections maintained at different temperatures for different tastes. The hot section is approximately 104 degrees, and a soaking section, perfect for families and prolonged soaking, is typically 95 degrees, or so. The lap lanes and deep section are usually about 80 degrees in the summer and fall, and cooler than that in the winter months when there is snow on the ground.

The Ouray Hot Springs Swimming Pool is an outdoor pool open all year. Many people enjoy the pool the most in the winter, after a day spent ice climbing, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, skating on the local ice rink (skates are available to rent at the Hot Springs Pool), or simply as a place to relax and enjoy the splendid scenery of the San Juan Mountains.

I do not live here. but I do love Ouray and its people. I have been to the Ouray hot springs. What I DO NOT love is the west coast tourist with their unruly screaming children. Rude, Pompous, Arrogant A-Holes. You know the one who do not keep their kids in line. These people make this place non enjoyable. My motto is " If it is not yours, LEAVE IT ALONE"!!! As for the slides. They have not operated for years. Every time I have went, they have not working. Not sure what is up with that. If you are an adult and want a nice relaxing evening (checking your west coast attitudes at the door) go to Orvis Hot Springs in Ridgeway down the road 8 miles. Be forewarned it is "Clothing Optional". And they have an area for all the prudes out there too (clothing only).

For a dirt bag climber, this place is a great way to clean up. The price is just right for a shower that is clean and warm. The staff and community are very nice. Sometimes after a long hike, a good climb, a heroic activity, a shower is just what you need to feel human again.

Very relaxing. One of the many reasons we keep coming back to this awesome town! Located right next to the City Park and within walking distance from everything. Check the schedule to make sure they aren't closed for cleaning!!!
