Three of these: the Ouray Hot Springs Pool, the vapor caves and outdoor pool at the Wiesbaden Hot Springs Spa & Lodgings, the pools at the Twin Peaks Lodge & Hot Springs and the naturally landscaped pools at Orvis Hot Springs in Ridgway are open to the public. Guests at the Box Canyon Lodge & Hot Springs can also enjoy private hot springs during their hotel stay.

Ouray Hot Springs Pool Information

Since 1927, the Ouray Hot Springs Pool has served the local and regional communities and its guests as the premier destination for relaxation, family fun and amazing views. 

After almost a century of use, the Ouray Hot Springs Pool is undergoing a multi-million dollar renovation and the new pool facility is sure create lasting memories for future generations to come. While the historic oval shape will remain, every other feature of the pool will be getting a complete overhaul, from the leaky infrastructure to new soaking pools, waterfalls, lap lanes and a climbing and diving platform. A new bathhouse will follow the pool renovation.

The City of Ouray plans to have all renovations complete by late May of 2017, close to the official 90th anniversary of the pool (the original opening day was July 4, 1927!). Click here for information on this new era for the Ouray Hot Springs Pool.

With the pool renovations underway (keep up with them in real-time via the live "Construction Cam") and the City is 78% of the way there to completing its capital funding goals. Help us get over the top and be a part of your favorite hot springs destination by donating today!

Spend the day with family and friends enjoying a day of old-fashioned fun surrounded by the stunning beauty of the towering San Juan Mountains.
