Crystal Hot Springs
What Makes It Great
Crystal Hot Springs is unique in that it sits at the convergence of a hot spring and cold spring. The hot spring ranges in temperature from 120-134 degrees F and holds the highest mineral content found in the United States. Every five minutes, more than 8,000 gallons of hot water makes its way to the surface and in every 24-hour period nearly 900,000 pounds of mineral comes with it. The cold spring source is only fifty feet from the hot spring. Its temperatures range from 65-75 degrees F and this spring releases over 9,000 gallons every five minutes or 2.6 million gallons each day.
The pool area at Crystal Hot Springs consists of three jetted hot tubs, a soaker pool, lap pool, Olympic-sized pool and two 360-foot water slides. The combination of water from the two springs is used to fill all the pools except the slide pool.
A large stone lodge at the entrance provides changing rooms and meeting spots. On the far end is a sand volleyball court. Surrounding the pools you will find a beautiful grass-covered and tree-lined campground that has full RV hook ups and is suitable for tents as well. Over 100 sites are available. This Utah campground offers fire rings, water, restrooms with flush toilets, showers, and laundry equipment.
On the west side of the campground they also have a beautiful carp pond that is a blast to fish. Try chumming the water with breadcrumbs, then bait your line with bread and throw it into the mix and hold on. You’ve never had a fish bite like this.
