Family fun time. A phrase with seemingly infinite possibilities.

When a plan comes together and all involved end the activity with smiles or in need of a nap. You found a winner. But occasionally, you have the ability and opportunity to rediscover a hidden gem in our great state that you forgot existed. Recently, I had the fortune of doing just that.  Crystal hot springs in Honeyville Utah. Exit 372 off I-15. East on hwy 240. Left on hwy 38 and in a few miles, you're there. Originally named Madsen Hot Springs. The facility was open for business In 1901. Often a stop for visitors traveling to Yellowstone. And a frequent for locals. The natural hot springs are believed to be well over 20,000 years old and draw water to the surface from 8,000 feet below. Ranging in temps from 120-134 degrees F. And contains the Highest mineral content in the USA.

Crystal Hot Springs

Three hot tubs of varying temps. A large soaking pool. Olympic size pool. And two 365' water slides. All with constant flow of water. The largest pool renewing it's water naturally approximately every 4 hours. 

I was pleasantly surprised at how affordable this outing was for my family of 4. Although not on family night, (Monday) a family of 6 can attend for $20.

Regular pricing as follows: Adults $7 | Kids ages 3-12 $5 | And the wee ones 2 and under are free.

Thrifty tip: a 10 punch pass is $50. $40 if slip and slides are not your thing. Two people can use the pass per visit. A little quick math, and you know that's a great deal. Pass is good for two years. 

My kids and I thoroughly enjoyed our few visits this month. They have asked to visit again. Even going on a Saturday night, there was plenty of room for all to enjoy. I was able to rest and soak.

Kids splashed and enjoyed the water slides. Silent ride home, and a little snoring sounds from the back seat, confirms a night well spent.  Staff was more than accommodating and professional. Pools were very relaxing. Family friendly atmosphere. And welcoming facility.

Crystal hot springs is a place I will visit, soon, and often.

Just can't get into those paid public hot springs. They're like DNA stews. But I have been known to hike to Diamond Fork once in a while. ;) http://pcskigal@yahoo.com
