Just 30 minutes west of Logan and 90 minutes away from Salt Lake City, this year-long hot spring is a favorite family getaway location because of the variety of activities they offer. Crystal Hot Springs is situated in Honeyville in northern Utah, about 27 miles drive to the Idaho border.
Built-up in 1901, the healing water of Crystal Hot Springs has a purported 39 times more minerals than the famous Lava Hot Springs in Idaho. Compared to the Hot Springs National Park in Arkansas, the water here has a reported 178 times more minerals. There are already a lot of stories that support the richness of the water at Crystal Hot Springs.
Natural Mineral Springs Pools
Crystal Hot Springs has cold and hot pools for swimming and soaking. Pool passes are counted per head (including children). For kids two below, they can enter for free.
The management is adamant about providing information about the benefits of the hot springs. The pools are noticeably dark or reddish, and this is caused by the rich iron content of the water. The build-up on the pond is calcium.
During an interview with Utah local channel show “Long Way Home,” the managers noted how people are not usually aware of the insufficient minerals we need in our bodies. By soaking in the most luxurious hot springs in the region, visitors can replenish that much-needed mineral, and they come out feeling refreshed and satisfied.
Note that outside food is no longer permitted at the resort and they will check your coolers and bags.
Crystal Hot Springs also offers other recreational activities like fishing, which visitors can do in their pond. The fishery is purely recreational and is on a “catch and release basis.”
“Spearing, stoning, shooting or any other form of fishing, crawfish, or wildlife harassment is not tolerated.”
Crystal Hot Springs has a lot of camping locations. They can accommodate travel trailers under 30 feet and RV/5th wheels under 35 feet, as well as tents. Campers will have access to water, sewer, electricity, and fire pits.
In 2018, the management launched a new lodge building – the first building since they renovated back in 1914. There are more options for suites that have similar features to a traditional hotel.
