How to Experience the Granite Hot Springs
Unwind in the Water
Did you know that soaking in a hot tub increases blood flow and stimulates healing for damaged or overused muscles? If you’re in need of a little TLC, the Granite Hot Springs are ideal. Stop by after a day of vigorous hiking, skiing, or snowboarding and the bubbling water will melt your cares away. As an added bonus, the springs are rich in minerals like sulfur and calcium which can be absorbed through the skin. They’ll give you a refreshing glow for the rest of your trip!
The Granite Hot Springs pool is open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. in the summer and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. in the winter. It closes for about a month in both the spring and fall. We recommend calling (307) 690-6323 ahead of time, as dates are all weather depending.
If you want to spend a night under the stars, the Granite Creek Campground offers 51 sites for tent camping and trailers on a first come, first served basis. Guests will have access to picnic tables, toilets, drinking water, and fire pits. There’s also a swimming pool located near Granite Falls where the kids can splash and play. The campground is open from Memorial Day through late September.
How to Get There
During the summer months, the Granite Hot Springs pools and campground are easily accessible by car. However, the road from US-191 is limited to snowmobiles, dogsleds, snowshoes, and cross-country skis in the wintertime. If you’re planning to visit this winter, sign up for a half day dogsled or snowmobile tour, or enjoy cross-country skiing to the springs. We promise the destination is well worth the journey!
