A group of warm water seeps in a side channel of the Madison River, located in the shadow of National Park Mountain. Although they aren’t the warmest soaks available in Yellowstone, the Madison Campground Warm Springs provide a nice place to relax when the air temperature is mild. The river channel itself makes for an enjoyable summer day soak, but most bathers prefer sitting as close as possible to the seeps for hotter temperatures. The thermal water bubbles out of the banks at around 100 degrees F, and the cold water of the Madison River keeps the soaking area a bit cooler (between 80 and 90 degrees F). Like all thermal areas in Yellowstone, it’s illegal to dig deeper pools in the river channel or to dam the natural flow of hot water with river rocks. Respect these restrictions and enjoy the water in its natural state. Primitive.
