When The Sun Goes Down, Clothing Is Optional At This Colorado Hot Springs
By Parker Diakite
If you’re a bit of an exhibitionist and you don’t mind the cold weather as your body is exposed, then consider a visit to Strawberry Park Hot Springs.
Clothes are only required during the day, but once the sun goes down, your swimsuit can, too.
“That’s something that we hope to only see — or not see — after dark,” Joe Stepan, Strawberry Park’s general manager, told CNN Travel. “The nighttime hours come around, we make sure there are no kids around, and it is totally optional.”
Situated on 40 acres of land in Steamboat Springs, Colorado, Strawberry Park Hot Springs has an all-natural theme in the park’s stone-built pools, walls, and wooden railings designed to give visitors a rustic feel.
What To Expect
Entrance into the park ranges between $15 and $20. On your way down to the springs, there’s a place to change your clothes to put on your suit for the kid-friendly hours.
After 9:30 pm Sunday through Thursday and after 10:30 pm on Saturday and Sunday, people under the age of 18 are not allowed after dark.
The temperatures in the pool range from 106 to 107 degrees. The hottest of the four pools is located next to the springs, and the coolest is located lower down the mountainside next to the creek.
In addition to the springs, there are two stone rooms into the hillside where can make reservations for a massage.
Strawberry Springs is a great place to ease the stress of a busy day.
