Strawberry Park Hot Springs (Steamboat Springs) - Hot Springs in Colorado


Large outdoor pools surrounded by rocks are fed by free-flowing thermal water.

Clothing is optional after dark.

Be careful of ice and snow

I drove up the mountain from Steamboat Springs, a famous ski resort known.

After a 20-minute drive, I arrived at the hot springs.

Dirt Road

It is open all year around, but a four-wheel drive with snow tires or chains is required from November 1 to May 1.

Please use shuttle services if you have safety concerns.

Waiting Space

This is the carriage porch of the shuttles.

Walk-in is $15.00 to $20.00 per adult for all day (as of this writing).

Office 1

There are camping grounds as well as lodging cabins.

It is interesting that they have a special accommodation in a train caboose.

Air of openness

I found it steaming on the opposite side of the creek.

Closing is required during daylight hours.

This log house is the changing room for both men and women.

Changing Room 1

The room is divided into four by curtains and heated with the wood-burning stove


The large pool in the right side is the kept water of the creek.

Guests can swim in it, which is just cold.

The hottest water is in the left side after going down the steps.

This pool was fed by only the free-flowing water; eventually it was comfortable temperature around 108 degrees F.

Soaking 01

The water was clear, colorless, and odorless.

Under Construction

I found some traces of pools.

Perhaps it might be under renovation.

The hot well is on a hillside.

Spilled water goes down on the slope, and flows into another changing room.

Two large pools were along the creek.

There were water gates that controlled the water input from the creek.

Soakers 2

It was a good option to stay long while soaking.

Simply after dark.

The air of openness at Strawberry Park is really unique and fabulous.
