The cool crisp evenings in Montana and the contrast of falling snow and hot mineral water make the outdoor pool a popular and fun-filled place to hang out, do your laps, have a romantic evening, or just have fun with the family. The pool has a graduated depth with a floating line dividing the shallower from the deeper end. The deck surrounding the pool has chairs and tables for relaxing. A heated sidewalk connects the pool and the bath house.
The swimming pool uses the geothermal mineral water from our springs cooled by our natural well water.
The water temperature is maintained at approximately 96-100°F.
We use no harsh chlorine in our swimming pool and, instead, add a less harmful agent of bromine to keep the pool pure and fresh.
There is no lifeguard and children under age 12 must be accompanied by an adult.
The pool is handicap-accessible with assistance.
A pass to the pool also includes the use of the dressing room and the inside plunges and steam rooms.
Indoor Steam Rooms
The hot geothermal mineral water is piped into our indoor plunges where it is mixed with natural cool water and maintained at a temperature of between 103-106°F.
The women’s plunge has a hot pool maintained between 103-106°F and a cool pool which is usually under 70°F.
The co-ed side has a hot pool maintained at 103-106°F and no cold pool.
Both hot pools are “continuous flow”, completely changing the water in the plunges every four hours. In addition, the plunges are cleaned nearly every night. You will find our plunges to be some of the cleanest and most natural (no harsh chemicals added!) you will ever experience. Both co-ed and women's sides of the bath house have dressing rooms, toilets, places to rest, and steam rooms. The steam rooms are heated by natural mineral geothermal water running through perforated pipes, so the steam baths are natural mineral steam which is very healing and healthy.
