Camp, Hot Springs, and Swim

This from a report: Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) constructed Granite Hot Springs Pool. While the hot springs have attracted visitors for thousands of years, it wasn't until the mid-1930s that the thermal heated water was captured in a cement container found there today. With the temperature varying from 93 degrees in the summer to 112 degrees in the winter, the Granite Hot Springs Pool is a year-round attraction. Between the river, pool, flush toilets, and several family focused activities, the Granite Creek campground is one of the more popular stops in the Teton National Forest." It is a hot water concrete swimming pool operated as a concession from the Forest Service - a fee is charged.Courtesy of swimmingholes.org

Fees: Yes, about $6.00 in 2010

Be careful. Pay attention to posted signs and always test the waters before you get in. Some hot springs can get up to boiling temperatures. Be sure to drink plenty of water to combat the dehydrating effect of the spring. Be respectful of other soakers and the hot spring. Don't hog the pool. Camp at least 200 yards away and keep fires in designated areas. Keep your pets out of the water and never pee in thermal feature. Glass bottles should never go near a hot spring.

  1. Plan Ahead and Prepare
  2. Travel & camp on durable surfaces
  3. Dispose of waste properly
  4. Leave what you find
  5. Minimize campfire impacts
  6. Respect wildlife
  7. Be considerate of other visitors
