While the Western United States has hundreds of known natural hot springs, very few cater to individuals with RVs. At Belmont Hot Springs in Garland, Utah, guests can park their rigs just steps away from hot springs lakes with the kind of access that most campers can typically only dream of.
Belmont Hot Springs is a year-round campground in Northern Utah. Only 21 miles away from Logan—a beautiful outdoor destination for hikers and outdoor enthusiasts alike— and around 100 miles from Salt Lake City, Bear Lake, and other destination spots, Belmont is a great place to park your travel trailer and spend a few days.
Belmont used to be called Udy Hot Springs but has since undergone some renovations, updates, and changes in ownership, leading to the renaming. The park has three levels. Two of the levels are designated spots for rigs and the first level has everything else: the hot springs, the office, the fishing pond, and the start of hiking trails.
Hot Springs Lake and Scuba
There are two mineral water pools for guests to enjoy. They are both large pools; one is even used for PADI-approved scuba training. While the bigger pool is 97 degrees, the other is 104 degrees Fahrenheit.
The hot water flows from a fractured portion of limestone between the higher portion of the Malad River Valley and the flood plain. There are several springs near the large pool and each has been nicknamed. You can visit “Indian Pool,” “Morning Glory Hole,” and “Mud Pots.” All of the spring water at Belmont flows into the Malad River.
The lake used for scuba diving is around 30 feet deep, and 370 feet wide, and has a platform for visitors to have easier access to its depths. Belmont Hot Springs is one of the few places in the Western United States that offers inland scuba certification, and it is a great choice during the winter months.
There is a sunken boat for scuba divers to explore and water temperatures that make for a very comfortable swim. There are even small tropical fish that divers can admire. In the summer, the water temperatures can get too warm for scuba diving. The summer months are filled with families and visitors enjoying the warm water and beautiful scenic area.
There are two levels for rigs to park. There are picnic tables available, 30/50 amp hookups, water, sewage, and electricity. There is complimentary WIFI that guests can use as well. The office has a community area where guests can visit the snack bar and try different types of ice cream. Games, books, and a few convenience items are available to purchase.
With on-site laundry and free showers, this place is a cheap option for travelers. Take a dip in the hot tubs on-site or try out the 9-hole golf course. There are a variety of activities to keep any type of person busy.
Utah is well known for having many hot springs. Around every corner, you can find a new one; however, there are not many hot springs in Utah that are as large as Belmont. For those looking to swim in a natural hot spring, Belmont is unique and available.
