Just outside of Steamboat Springs nestled alongside Hot Springs Creek lies one of the most spectacular mineral springs in the world. Imagine relaxing in 104 degree mineral water while Steamboat’s famous Champagne Powder gently collects in the surrounding forest. Enjoy a massage in one of our beautiful private massage huts or a watsu therapy in our private pool. The pools are perfect for relaxing after a long day of skiing or hiking, and after your first visit you may want to come for the entire day!
The vision of Strawberry Hot Springs is to maintain the beautiful natural environment while keeping the park accessible to all. Restrooms and changing areas are available as are picnic areas.
