Antelope (Hart Mountain) Hot Springs

Unspecified • 0 mi • 0 ft

A high-elevation, primitive hot spring located in the center of the Hart Mountain National Antelope Refuge. Situated near the head of Rock Creek in an aspen-dotted meadow, Antelope Hot Springs is a relaxing soak for up to half a dozen people. The soaking pool is about 5 feet deep and 9 feet by 12 feet across. Hot water averaging 100° F. bubbles gently from the natural sand-and-rock bottom. A small ladder at one end of the pool provides a way to ease yourself into the warm water (be careful—the wooden stairs can be slippery). A small sitting bench next to the surrounding cinder-block walls provides a place for your clothes. The 8-foot-high walls provide privacy and protection from winter winds but also block any view of the surrounding meadows and hills. Fortunately there’s no roof over the hot springs, so it’s a great place for stargazing on a clear night.
