Hot water stream now cold?
Jun 2021 • Family
Spa park and hot water stream has always been a family favourite, however after walking the picturesque track from hula falls to spa park found the stream to be luke warm??? It has been redeveloped recently which looks good and shouldn’t affect water temperature but was not swimmable now in winter when usually very hot. What a disappointment.

A very pretty place to visit and costs nothing .
May 2021
There is a medium downhill track to the river which my husband and I (both 70) were able to walk with ease. The river is very pretty and you can sit underneath the small waterfalls which run warm water into the river. It was a cold day when we visited so we didn't try the waterfall.

Plenty of dog friendly areas

Advised to go here for dog friendly areas and were not disappointed. Great walking tracks, hot water area was beautifully done, cafe down the bottom was a bonus.

Great Warm Pools AND Cold River Swim
Mar 2021
Well laid out scenic reserve adjacent to Waikato River, with warm thermal water pools .......flowing into Waikato River. So you get both a warm thermal soak, and a cold fresh water river swim....and all for free!.
Clean toilets and changing facilities on site.........also a cafe selling drinks and ice creams, etc managed by the really friendly and helpful Kirby!

FABULOUS SCENERY.

It is a beautiful sparkling blue hot water stream which flows into the Waikato River. Fabulous scenery surrounded by native forestry and mountains.

Nice swimming spot
Jan 2021
About a 5 minute walk from the carpark is a lovely spot for a swim whether in the warmer stream pools , lower down where it's cooler or in the river. Changing rooms and toilets as well as a small cafe/coffee stand there also

This was a wonderful experience. Even the rain did not put us off and we tried all pools and got to know some lovely people. People did distance as much as they could. Cost of $25 was worth the time and very relaxing. Although the have a bond fee on the towels and lockers u did get it back, some people do forget the they have them. Staff were very helpful and kept and eye on everyone via camera's. Every enjoyed being there.

lovely hot pools

don't forget your towels. Because of covid we couldn't hire any towels and you couldn't use the lockers and you couldn't have a shower. Found that a bit strange.
