Located at the northern edge of Carson City, the historic Carson Hot Springs is continuously operating since 1849. Over the years the resort has been completely remodeled, but the healing properties of the Carson mineral water remain unchanged. Currently, the resort offers a large outdoor pool, two outdoor hot tubs, and ten private tubs.

Natural water comes from 35,000 feet below the Earth's surface at 121°F. The pool and hot tubs are drained, cleaned, and refilled every night. Water is not chemically treated. The pool temperature is maintained from 93 to 96°F in the summer seasons and from 98 to 100°F in the winter. The outdoor hot tub temperature is between 100 and 102°F. Swimsuits are required in the public areas.

Private mini-spas in individual rooms can be rented for at least two hours. The water temperature in the tubs ranges from 95 to 104°F. Clothing is optional in the private rooms.

The mineral water of Carson Hot Springs can be consumed internally.
