Similar to so many other attractions in Wyoming, the hot springs of the state have a long history of their own. A number of Native American tribes once visited these hot springs, believing they contained healing powers and many settlers used them to soak weary feet from traveling. Today, locals and travelers alike can visit these naturally heated hot spring-fed pools to relax and recharge, as well as taking in the surrounding natural scenery. Most of the Wyoming hot springs are open year-round and particularly great to visit during the chilly winter weather.


We recommend that you call the attractions and restaurants ahead of your visit to confirm current opening times.

The Granite Hot Springs just outside the city of Jackson, Wyoming are tucked away above the Granite Creek Falls. The area includes a man-made swimming pool and a 104-degree, waterfall-fed soaking pool. These pools close to the public around the end of October, however, they open back up in December for winter soaking. During this time, the Granite Hot Springs can only be reached by snowshoes, skis, or snowmobile. Reaching these hot springs by dog sled is also an option and a particularly exhilarating one. Visitors can do so with the half-day or full-day Iditarod Sled Dog Tours.
