The Waters

  • Deep below the surface of the earth, the heat of volcanic rock is released through countless fissures that spread out through the earth’s crust.
  • At Iron Mountain Hot Springs, there are several natural springs running up to the surface that have been flowing on the grounds for hundreds of years, surfacing between 102 and 109ºF.
  • Large amounts of hot mineral-rich water flow through our 16 mineral pools every day, at controlled temperatures from 98º to 108ºF.
  • The iron-rich waters contain calcium, sulfate, chloride, lithium and sodium, along with 8 other natural minerals.

The Pools

  • Family Pool – This is the largest pool, about 75 feet long, filled with 86,000 gallons of fresh water which has been geothermally heated. For the handicapped or those who avoid steps, there is a gentle ramp with handrail, providing a soft entrance into the family pool.
  • Whirlpool Spa – Located right next to the Family Pool is a smaller, slightly elevated Whirlpool Spa with jets which provides a massaging soak at a temperature of 102ºF. Here parents can soothe in warmer waters while watching their children play in the adjacent Family Pool.
