• Yellowstone Hot Springs Resort is one of the newest hot spring RV park and campground in Montana
• The resort sits on the northern edge of Yellowstone National Park

Yellowstone Hot Springs is a geothermal mineral water paradise on the northern edge of Yellowstone National Park, 47 miles southwest of Livingston.

The first bathhouse here was built in the 1900s near the springs. Between 1922 and 1940, this spot was home to the Eagle's Nest Dude Ranch. The ranch included a western-themed clubhouse, a dance hall, a nine-hole golf course, a restaurant, and an open-air plunge.

Today, only the plunge remnants are left after the ranch. Construction of the current resort began in January 2018, making it one of the newest hot spring resorts in the state.

Yellowstone Hot Springs is a prime soaking spot next to one of the most significant natural wonders of the USA. It is open for both day-use and overnight stay.

Geothermal Water & Soaking

Geothermal mineral water emerges from the source at 154º F (68º C) and is then channeled into 2 outdoor pools and a plunge.

The hot soaking pool is maintained at 103º F - 105º F (39º C - 41º C).

The main swimming pool is 3,750 square feet with temperatures ranging from 98º F to 100º F (37º C - 38º C).

Meanwhile, the cold plunge temperatures range from 60º F to 65º F (16º C - 18º C).

In addition, all pools at the resort are flow-through, so no chemicals are added.

Clothing is mandatory since Yellowstone is a developed, family-friendly destination.
