    So satisfying
    This naturally fed pool is a great respite after a day of travel or hiking. The crowd is eclectic, from twenty-something local seasonal workers to families to retirees. Personally, I could have sit in front of the jets in the main pool all day, but the hot and cold side pools have their respective places, too.

    Yellowstone Hot Springs Experience
    Beautiful atmosphere and hot springs experience. Three separate areas for hot pool at 106 degrees, cold pool at 66 degrees and a larger pool with temps varying from 96 to 100. The natural minerals made it a very relaxing and regenerating experience after a long day at Yellowstone. We visited twice during our week stay in Gardiner and only wish we had found it sooner! Highly recommend.

    Nice for a little relaxation
    *Disclaimer-we stayed in July 2022, but I kept getting busy with life and kids and kept forgetting to review, but they deserve the good review. Marked as Sept 2022, but we were there in July, early August. This place was pretty cool! We were on a multi day trip to Yellowstone and after traveling all day the day before and whitewater rafting earlier in the day, this was a welcome relaxation! The water was deliciously warm and it was nice to just sit and relax for a while. We would love to come back if we are in the area again!
    We're thrilled to hear that you found our place cool and a welcome relaxation during your multi-day trip to Yellowstone. It sounds like you had a delightful time enjoying the warm water after a day of travel and whitewater rafting. We would be delighted to welcome you back if you find yourself in the area again. :)

    Amazing little hideaway hot springs. We went at night just as the sun was setting and it was just amazing. Mountain View’s from every angle. Lights in trees, gas fire pit going. One large pool, one small hot hot pool, a cold dip pool. Lockers to rent for .50 cents, towel rental $4. $15 all day pass so you can come and go with stamp. We will be going back again tomorrow! The stars at night are amazing as it is so dark out.

    Very nice facility. Nicely landscaped, variety of water temps and great views of the mountains from the pools. Large pool about 98° to a hot 105° pool and much colder one for the brave. Zero entry available, benches below the water level. Changing/shower rooms were clean. Prices were reasonable. Lounge chairs and covered tables available..a fire pit for colder Temps. Nice, relaxed facility. No alcohol allowed.

    Beautiful setting!
    Beautiful setting. Feel like you’re nestled in the mountains. Pool area was nicely laid out - plenty of chairs and a fire pit. We went mid-Oct and it was not crowded (about 30 other people). We took our three teenage boys and grandma - we spent about 2.5 hours there on our way to Yellowstone, but could have stayed longer!

    Relaxation Beyond Expectation
    First, ignore the one star review below. It is the first and only review they have written here. I wonder if they were even here. I HAVE been here on my wife's birthday. We were camping here on the other side of the road and had a great time. See my campground review on RVLife web site. This place was amazing! When I entered, temperatures for the various pools were listed on a large board. The pools were great, but there is so much more here. There are four gazebos large enough for 20 or more people each with tables and chairs. There are lots of deck chairs and lounge chairs around the pools. There are grassy areas for kids to play, and corn hole set up as well. It made for an excellent relaxing afternoon. I will be back when I am in the area.

    Relaxing
    We spent an afternoon relaxing at the Yellowstone Hot Springs after several busy days in Yellowstone. Really enjoyed the water and the beautiful mountain views. Definitely recommend spending some soaking time here! Easy drive from Gardiner with wildlife sightings along the way.

The pools and surroundings are lovely and clean. Hot, warm and cold baths await you. Clean locker rooms with showers and lockers. The baths made me feel like a million bucks. Slept like a log afterward. The problem is the lack of supervision of children both by parents and staff of the hot springs. Screaming kids, rough housing, jumping and the use of pool toys when it stated that they were not allowed. It was similar to a community pool. Incognito parents and staff. You couldn't relax if you tried. This is not a place for young children and they shouldn't be present or at least the staff should have supervised. I would not return.

We are happy to hear that you enjoyed the pools and cleanliness. So sorry to hear that you found it too busy. There are times during some evenings and weekends that we get really busy. We are a family friendly place where everyone can come visit, so there are children here. We DO listen to our customers and will discuss your concern with management. You might also try the mornings and during the week when there are less people.

We spent one afternoon here and the pools were wonderful and relaxing, although the price of admission is a bit pricey. Is is a full day pass. So when a late afternoon thunderstorm rolled through, we took a break went to dinner and came back to enjoy the pools again in the evening. I believe they were open to 9 pm!

So glad you enjoyed your visit. Sorry you thought it was a bit expensive. We thought $15 for an all day pass that allowed visitors to leave and come back was reasonable, but we will consider your thoughts on this. :)

We opted to visit this establishment during our trip to Yellowstone National Park. We need a day off from driving. This place is a hidden gem! We had a fantastic restful half day. Entrance fee 18.00 for adults. The place is very clean and landscaped beautifully. Large changing rooms, showers and clean restrooms. Drinks available on site. No restaurant but I think it would be a great addition! The owners clearly care about this place. There is a main pool that is warm (100) that is 3 1/2 ft deep. It has ledges in it to sit on also. Two other pools at different temps. One 106, and a cold pool (64?) not sure of the temp. There is also a cool feature set up for your feet. You walk through a warm “river” and then immediately into the cold “river”. It felt great on the feet. Lots of lounge chairs and seating around to sit in. There are some tables also. Some under shade. They have a bean bag toss game set up. We saw kids there too but all were well controlled by their parents. We went in late July, it was not crowded. Towels for rent if you need one. Lockers available for .50 cents. Bring your quarters. Would definitely recommend this place!

So we went horse back riding in the morning then river rafting just before lunch and spent the rest of the day at Yellowstone Hot Springs.My wife and I had our two sons 22 and 16 as well as my 14 year old daughter with us and it was raining! You know what is was perfect, sitting in 98(ish) water with cold rain coming down (lightly) was amazing. The facility gets water from a nearby hot-spring, then adds some well water to cool it down. The staff was great and the grounds are terrific! No better way to wind down than a good soak here!

Perfect way to spend an evening after hiking in the park all day. Very clean, not too crowded (for September, it was a little chilly and camp ground was half full). Cost was $15 a person, but there were a lot of discounts. Noticed a lot of locals were there, one showed us how to use the hot and cold pools with the walking pool, a lot of fun. Would have gone again but they had to close to clean the rest of the time we were there.

This was an OK experience. We went later in the day after rafting and it wasn’t too crowded. There were a lot of small kids which made me wonder about the sanitation of the water. There also were no signs about swim diapers and other requirements you usually se related to sanitation.

They only have one hot pool and one cold pool and then the general soaking pool unlike some places we have been where there are a few levels of hot pool.

Overall it felt like an average hotel pool experience nothing bad about just also nothing really great.

Sorry to hear you had anything less than an excellent experience. :( ...We change and scrub the pools 3 times a week and they also have continual flow-through water, so sanitation is not an issue.

This place was perfect to unwind after a few days of hiking around Yellowstone. One of the staff members had us do a series of cold to hot soaks in the pools which felt amazing. I highly recommend this place to families, couples or groups to go to to soak the muscles and soak in the views.

Yes, the cold/hot dip can be great for relaxing muscles and getting the blood going. Glad you enjoyed the views while soaking. Montana mountains are so pretty. :)

This was a highlight of our visit to Gardiner MT and the last part of our trip to Yellowstone. We enjoyed the beautiful manicured grounds and were fortunate enough to have landed a spot under the cabana (it was a hot day).

The employees were very friendly and the vibe chill for the family. I would highly recommend for anyone that wants a respite from the park travels to just relax and unwind.

We were very disappointed when we arrived. The resort is NOT like what the pictures show. We stayed in an RV in the campground, and our site was across the road from the bathroom and shower house. There were only 2 bathroom stalls and only two working showers for the ladies staying at this resort. The mineral pools were not included as part of the fee to stay in the campground. I would strongly suggest staying at a different place.

I've been to Yellowstone NP 8 times since summer 2020 and haven't visited until now (usually just too busy in the park, ya know?) but I made an effort to swing in as the air quality in the park was getting to me and I wanted to try something different.

I went in with VERY LOW expectations, as I had a friend of mine who went here a few weeks ago and said, meh, it's not that great. After visiting here, I say otherwise! I had a great time!

I expected it to be very crowded (it wasn't at ALL!). For a while, I almost felt like I had the place to myself. There is a very large soaking pool, and a hot tub and cool tub, along with a 'walk' for your feet.

I found it very relaxing and enjoyable. Beautiful setting and nice landscaping. I only spent an hour here, as I was by myself and had my dog waiting for me back at my hotel. Had I come here with others, I would've stayed longer.

Very friendly staff - from the woman at check in to the gentleman out in the pool area telling people how it 'worked' (very interesting! I took his advice on how to use these pools and it did help!)

I want to come back here again with my sister - she'd love this place!
