Our AirBnB host recommended this place to my husband and I since we wanted to experience a hot spring. The drive from Colorado Springs was not bad- in fact, it was beautiful and scenic. We arrived to the Well and found the lady at the...More

It seems a little run down (mainly the huge pothole at the entrance), but It’s a nice place & the price is right! Clothing is optional on most days, so if you’re easily shocked might not be your cup of tea. I would recommend it...More

This is a very down to earth, not fancy hot springs about a 30 minute drive from Colorado Springs and 15 minutes from Canyon City. The large pool is well used with a very hot tup in the middle where the hot spring water flows...More

The pool was full of dead grass clippings and the poolside had overgrown weeds all around plus sucker trees growing thru the fence. It looked as tho the place had been deserted. Wouldn’t spend money to go here again.

The pool is large and has different temperature areas. There is a hot area in the center that great to hangout at. It is nice not to have wear a bathing suit.

New management or owners have made a world of difference to the place. Cleaned up and ultra relaxing experience!

Went back on a Wednesday. The pool isn't as hot as it used to be as I guess that they lost one of their wells. The changing room was cleaner as was the bathroom and I didn't walk into a cloud of cigarette smoke. However,...More

Here, you can bare it all if you like, it is swim suit optional, except on Tuesday. People working there are nice, and admission for a couple is only $20, $15 for singles. Not far from Colorado Springs.

NO! There are signs posted regarding this and the owners are pretty strict about it. I've seen them warn people to stop doing what they're doing and have been there when folks were asked to leave. Besides, sex in public... More
