Strawberry Park Hot Springs

A great way to relax on a Thursday afternoon
in a natural hot spring pool in the mountains of Colorado

Is located approximately 7.0 miles from beautiful downtown Steamboat Springs and is by far one of the most attractive mineral springs in the world. Hot Springs Creek is nestled between Rocky Peak and Copper Ridge. This is the point where a series of hot springs spew from the hillside at temperatures of approximately 150 degrees fahrenheit, and flow down into the creek.

A fabulous display of masonry architecture divides the creek into cells where the water temperature is controlled by adjusting rustic style gates.
The largest hot pool is approximately 19'x 16' and is kept at a temperature of +/- 104 degrees fahrenheit. The next pool down is slightly smaller and cooler. The cool (creek) pool is larger than both of the other cells put together. It offers a comfortable contrast to the hot pools and sports warm spots due to geothermal venting in various places. The masonry walls were constructed to create 5 waterfalls. In addition a small private pool was created for Watsu; warm water massages. Most recently a beautiful stone stream house, a warm changing area, and picnic area have been added.
