$10/per dog at the gate.  Humans get in free, humans are not allowed in the pool. 

Lava Hot Springs Foundation invites dogs and dog-lovers to Lava Hot Springs!  Our goal is to maximize the joy that (somehow) accompanies wet dog smell and a totally exhausted pooch at the end of the day!  Fun for the whole family!  Contests for chances to win cool prizes and watch your best friend swim.
