Among the many reasons to visit Ouray, Colorado and the neighboring areas, hot springs are certainly among them. As you’re looking for things to do when you aren’t relaxing in your Alpenglow rental, a little exploring will reveal plenty of exciting activities.
Today we’re highlighting Orvis Hot Springs located over in the town of Ridgway. It is a clothing optional resort comprised of natural hot springs ranging between temperatures of 98 to 112 degrees that have not been treated or heated in any way. For those seeking some soaking activities, there is plenty to see and do. “The Pond” spans over 35 feet and is five feet deep. It provides gorgeous views of the massive Mount Sneffels. The Island Pond is a smaller option just twenty feet long with a wonderful vista of a waterfall. Smoker’s Pond is even smaller at eight feet yet it just as picturesque.
Besides its many areas to enjoy a good soak, Orvis Hot Springs can also be used for unreserved camping, both tent and vehicle. If you’ve ever wondered what it’d be like to camp with the mountains as a backdrop, it may be worth considering as a complement to your relaxing stay in one of our Alpenglow rentals in Ouray.
