Hobo Hot Pool
There is a larger hobo hot pool and another “not-so-hot” pool. The former has varying temperatures between 106°F to 119°F in the warmest part of the pool. This larger pool is perfect for really relaxing your muscles and recovering your body from a long day of adventuring in “The Cowboy State”.
The latter smaller pool has an average temperature of 100°F. Its cooler water allows for slightly longer soaks and opens up the use to a younger family-friendly audience.
