Located right along on the Thousand Springs Scenic Byway, five miles east of Hagerman on U.S. 30, Thousand Springs Resort has a very large pool – 60 feet wide by 120 feet long – heated by geothermal water where you can take a nice, soothing swim with friends or family.
Thousand Springs Resort also has 15 private indoor hot tubs, overnight accommodations with two cabins that sleep 4-6 people, and 18 RV camping sites with full hookups, and 40 tent camping sites. In the main pool, the resort has two diving boards, a water slide, a 2-foot-deep kiddie pool, a basketball hoop and a large log to play on.
If the long, winter weather might be causing a little cabin fever among your family, try visiting Thousand Spring Resort to enjoy the hot water pool in an indoor environment, out of the weather.
“It’s a perfect time to visit right now, and it’s nice that you can swim indoors,” says Brenda Henslee, owner of Thousand Springs Resort.
The main pool is kept in the 95-degree range, but the geothermal water comes in at 168 degrees, so the water in the private hot tubs can be set to your personal preference.
Thousand Springs Resort operates from 11 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. on Tuesdays – Thursdays, 11 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, and noon to 6 p.m. on Sundays. It is closed on Mondays.
Aqua Zumba and Aqua Aerobics classes are offered weekly in the evenings. See web site for details.
