Bubbling out of natural underground springs, the hot water is laden with minerals, but has no sulfur and therefore no bad odor.

Over 2.5 million gallons a day course through the hot springs and are diverted into the Portneuf River keeping the springs ever changing and clean. The spring's temperatures range from approximately 102˚ to 112˚ degrees.

On cold winter days, the steam rising from the pools wrap people in a cocoon of anonymity. The heated sidewalks and dressing room floors keep your toes toasty warm, even on the coldest of nights.
