The natural springs on site are very special, with water coming out of the ground at 168 degrees Fahrenheit (75 degrees Celsius) and at 200 gallons/minute. As the water flows, the minerals cool and form layers of rock. This spring has been flowing out continuously for millions of years. Over time, the mineral buildup has created a mound that is a mile across, 200 ft deep, 200 yards wide. As the water travels through a channel, it cools down, and it is then contained in eight bathtubs and two concrete pools. The pools and tubs are kept between 98 and 110 degrees Fahrenheit (37-43 degrees C.), so you are bound to find something you like. The temperatures can always be adjusted as necessary. The bathtubs are cleaned every morning. The pools are cleaned once or twice a week. The water contains lots of calcium, magnesium, and iron, which makes it best for soaking. It is not recommend for drinking, however, if you would like to drink it, it is advised that you acquire it from the source in a glass container and drink 1 oz per day at the most. Tubs 7 and 8 are usually the hottest. Five minutes in them can do wonders on aching muscles. People come here, and after soaking they experience wonderful feelings of well-being! Our water is amazingly soothing and rejuvenating. The view from the tubs is incredible, and you can even watch the sunset from them! The tubs are also the best place to gaze at the beautiful stars. You can watch a meteor shower even in the winter! It's also beautiful to see the moon rise over the mountains. The shallow pool is 3 feet deep, so it is a nice depth and suitable for children.

Location + Surroundings

The area surrounding this property in Utah provides a wealth of outdoor activities and excursions. The Indians that were in this area were nomadic bands from the Ute, Shoshone or Piute tribes. They would make their camps on the warm ground near the hot springs. They would soak in the springs for warmth and comfort. It is told that the Indians would paint themselves with the red mud to keep them safe. Later as the settlers arrived, the hot springs became popular as a resting place along the "Old Spanish Trail." The property creates an authentic environment which raises self-awareness by direct experience with nature, art and antiquities. It is a one-of-a-kind place – some say it's like stepping back in time to the 60s or 70s when things were imperfect. Read More
