Take a Dip in the 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 swim to the bottom if you want (but never leave anything behind), 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.

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!
