  • Description : Penny Hot Springs sit on the banks of the Crystal River, a short drive south from Carbondale. The set up consists of three shallow pools where the hot spring water mixes with the river water. The larger pools are accessible when the river water level is down otherwise only the smaller pools are accessible.

    The larger pools near the river tend to be cooler as more of the river water is mixed in. There is enough room for about 10-12 people, but there is not a lot of shore space so this isn't somewhere you could bring a bunch of chairs and set up for the day.

    A diverse crowd to be mixed, individuals, couples, families. Clothed as well as nude bathers. These springs are free, convenient with no hiking required.
  • Location : Penny Hot Springs, Colorado, USA
