Take a Dip in the Meadow Hot Springs

Utah Meadow Hot Springs

Added by Eric Bennett

There are 3 warm pools to soak in and it is open all night...hopefully with little to no crowds.

These hot springs are located on private property but the owner allows anyone to come and take a dip. You can camp overnight and also have fires in the several pits near the pools. He just asks all the visitors to keep it cleaner than they found it and Leave No Trace of course. There are 3 different pools, but the first one is said to be the warmest. They are super deep and the water is very clear. Bring some glow-sticks or lights to drop to the bottom if you want, it is also cool to scuba dive here if you have the gear.

Take the Meadow exit 158 just south of Filmore on I-15. Turn left at the stop sign and go under the freeway, passing a Shell station on the right heading south. Keep going until you pass the last buildings on the left. Shortly after passing the buildings on the left, you will see a well maintained dirt road on the right. You will cross a bridge over the freeway and continue straight on the same road until you reach the fence just about 100 meters in front of the first pool.

How to Get There

about 2 months ago

Go at the right time with the right attitude and its worth it

Yes it is crowded on weekends, of course look at this place its awesome. All you have to do is either go in the winter or go on a weekday at sunrise. Sure people can be disrespectful and leave trash but when we went we spent about 15 min picking up all the trash and left it the best we could.

Used To Be A Hidden Gem, Now Overcrowded

This place used to be a wonderful spot for locals, and the few passer bys that heard it through word of mouth. Sadly because social media this place blew up, and now has too many disrespectful people. It has been ruined by trash and just plain too much traffic. Still a neat little hot pot area. Easy to get to, I guess is why it has gotten so beat up.

Used to be great, quickly going downhill

Getting there is a bit of a trick, go with someone who knows how to get there. Been here several times over the years, each time I go it gets more crowded, more trash, more loud annoying rap music or beer chuggin rednecks blasting luke bryan. I'm not from UT so I don't mind the more "colorful" language and drinking, but these are the same people that trash the place and are sometimes pretty rude shining lights in your eyes and peeing in the hot springs. I'd highly suggest avoiding the weekends. I'm going to try going in the snow when it's too cold for most of these folks.

New Update

Update on these hot springs. The previous owners have sold this property and the new owners are very careless. They have removed the fences allowing cars and cows to come right up next them. These hot pots are very dirty and ugly now due to tire tracks, cow pies, and tons of trash left by inconsiderate visitors. Really sad to see the way some people desolate nature. However, there are some awesome camping and four wheeling spots to the East of this location!

Awesome pots!

The hot springs were quite crowded when we went on the weekend. They were fairly warm, and you had to trek through mud to get there, but it was worth the drive. I'd recommend trying a weeknight and going out to see the stars!

Looks Cool!

It looks and sounds cool, I've never been there, but I'm wondering the same thing; is it still open? More details as far as if there's and open and close schedule?

This spot was open last night. The larger of the 3 pools is the coolest. The other 2 are really warm but not super hot. We stopped by and tested out the water on our way back from Vegas. There is an abandoned pick up truck with a "Redneck" window sticker that seems to be stuck in the mud, that was kind of creepy to see at night (it was just the girlfriend and I .... sounds like the beginning of a horror movie....). In order to get to the most eastern pool, you'll need a vehicle with relatively high clearance. We were driving a newer Outback. Normal clearance cars will do just fine getting to the other 2 pools. Wasn't too muddy, but it was also 20 degrees F. Once it warms up, I bet it gets pretty muddy.

Pretty cool spot. The pools smaller pools are warmer, but the big pool is impressive, and a apparently is 75 feet deep! Lot's of little (and bigger) tropical fish in the big pool. Fun spot to stop on your way north or south on the I-15.

Is this place still open? Heard a rumor that this place is not open any more. Hoping there is someone that can tell me otherwise. Thanks.

Hike to the Klondike Bluff Dinosaur Track

Utah / Klondike Bluff Road, Moab

I think these tracks are the best in Moab. Take route 191 north out of Moab for about 13 miles (mile post 142). Klondike Bluff road is on the right. If you pass the airport, you went too far.
