Not fancy, but the water is great. Amenities are clean and basic (took a while to find a women’s shower,) but the price is an excellent value even without the “over 50l discount. The hot pool is not too deep and comfortably holds 10-20 people....More

The actual mineral pool, and cool regular pool, were fine and an enjoyable experience on a chilly December night. The after 5 PM price was reasonable, although there is supposed to be a movie shown after dark, but a good hour after sunset, it hadn't...More

This hot springs has probably seen better days. The waters were clean, but not that hot. The warmest pool was small and crowded. The big pool was much larger, with life guards and floaty noodles. We went as it was getting dark, so that was...More

It's just too expensive for what it is. They either need to fix this place up a bit or charge less. If you're driving through, give it a skip unless you're desperate for a warm soak for some reason, and if you're a local, I...More

This was the first time I ever soaked in a hot spring. Having read their website, I was a little disappointed when I saw the facility, which is quite rustic. However, we did have a good time soaking in the hot spring and talking with...More

This location is a great get-away for relaxation. Whether you get a room or one of the cabins, you will enjoy yourself. The restaurant is delicious too!

This place has been in business for many years. In its day it was probably more amazing. The hot strings are very hot and makes the swimming pool comfortable to swim in. The facility is quite run down and thus a little intimidating.

Lifeguards weren't doing their job. They were messing around pushing another lifeguard in the pool, who was inappropriately wearing a thong. Continuously was going into the room behind the lifeguard chair. Never once saw a lifeguard sitting in the lifeguard chair.

The facility is worn but you do get what you pay for. This is not a fancy spa. It is more of a blue collar campsite kind of place. We stopped by to use the hot springs soaking pool and swimming pool. The staff at...More

I agree with the above traveller. It's $6.00 for seniors from 8:00 AM until noon, and $10.00all day. Otherwise, I'm pretty sure the daily rate is $12.00 for adults and $8.00 for kids.

Yes, they are... for a fee. I think it was $10 per person to get in to the pools and hot springs.
