Hot Springs to Visit in Colorado

Sponsored Content

Fall and Winter Break are the perfect times for students to de-stress after all their hard work. A great way to relax and let your worries and stress melt away is to visit one of Colorado’s many hot springs. Because there are tons of hot springs available in Colorado, here are three of the closest to Fort Collins.



  • Located 92.6 miles away
  • The drive is roughly 1 hour and 52 minutes

Located only 30 miles west of Denver, Indian Hot Springs has pure mineral water flow from its springs directly into the pool and baths. The pool sits at an average temperature of 90 to 100 degrees and is a favorite of both adults and children. Along with the pool, there are Geo-Thermal Caves that are located directly into the side of the mountain. The temperatures in the caves range from 104 to 112 degrees and the caves are gender specific and bathing suit optional. Therefore, children 16 and under aren’t permitted in the caves. There are also outdoor jacuzzis that sit at 108 degrees, hot mineral water and indoor private baths that are equipped with a shower and a bench filled with hot mineral water at a temperature of about 106 degrees.


  • Located 163 miles away
  • The drive is roughly 2 hours and 35 minutes

Saratoga Hot Springs Resort boasts a 70-foot-long mineral hot springs pool along with many teepee-covered hot pools. Located in Saratoga, Wyoming, the hot springs are said to have natural healing benefits for certain skin disorders and arthritis. It is also said to rejuvenate and detoxify the skin. The approximate temperature of the teepee hot pools is 100 to 112 degrees and the 70-foot mineral pool is around 96 to 98 degrees. But because the heating of the pool is 100 percent natural, the temperatures can vary based on Mother Nature.


  • Located 157 miles away
  • The drive is roughly 3 hours and 7 minutes

Hot Sulphur Springs Resort and Spa has seven natural springs that sit at temperatures between 104 and 126 degrees. Born from these springs are 21 natural pools and baths that have controlled temperatures of 95 to 112 degrees. The water contains minerals that are good for both inside and outside the body and it has no abrasive or harmful elements. Because of its location in Grand County, Colorado, Hot Sulphur Springs can be enjoyed by skiers and snowboarders looking for a nice place to relax after hitting the slopes in the neighboring ski resorts of Winter Park and Granby.
