Relax in the Saratoga Hot Springs

Saratoga Springs Parking

The Saratoga Hot Springs, located just off the northwest side of Utah Lake is a perfectly heated hot springs. The hot springs have easy parking and are open all year round.

Awesome all year round, but one of the best places to chill out during winter. The water is just hot enough to feel amazing and escape from the cold. This place is public and not supervised. It does close from 10pm-6am and police have been known to pass by and enforce it.

Pulling in to the parking lot, just take the first pathway which goes out past the bathrooms. Follow it for about 10 minutes and you will see the pool on the left. It's really easy to access and the hike is a quick walk. This is an awesome place to take a date or to recover after a long day of hiking. You can hang out here for hours; the water is less smelly than most hot springs and it doesn't get too crowded. Weekends do tend to get more crowded than weekdays.

You can get some awesome views of the sunset as well. If you go in the winter, make sure you take a backpack to keep all your stuff in. It's also a good to have a tarp to lay your stuff on because it can get very muddy around hot springs.

Private community- look for public access

To the location that MAPS took us, we went to a private community that appears that the hot springs have become their community pool and club house. There is a gate to get into the community, when we went the game was open. But super pretty to look around!

Warm, But Dirty

Not a bad set of hot springs, but it has become somewhat of a tourist spot and has become crowded and dirty, at least when we visited. Still, not a bad choice if you want to go check out some hot springs but don’t have time to travel very far!

Stinky

It stinks, and is super mucky and gross! I would rather hike to the diamond fork hot springs
