The Granite Hotsprings are a great way to end your day when visiting the Granite Creek area or if you just wish to take a nice warm soak. The hot springs flow out of the surrounding rocks and into a swimming pool that was built by the CCC during the 1930's. The pool is very family friendly and is a great place for the kids to swim and splash around while the adults relax sore muscles. The views from the pool are amazing with the surrounding mountains overlooking the facility like sentinels.
The Granite Hotsprings pool is located at the end of the Granite Creek Road and is situated just above Granite Creek Falls. If you aren't camping in the area, be prepared for a long scenic drive to the pool on a bumpy dirt road. During the winter months the hotsprings are accessible only via snowmobile, dog sled, skiing and via fat biking. No alcohol is allowed in the pool area to protect public safety, prevent drinking and driving, and preserve the family-friendly character of this special place. Please respect the no alcohol rule and plan accordingly.
There are two different seasons when the hot springs are open, summer and winter.
Summer season usually opens May 20th and ends October 31st. In the spring, make sure to call ahead to confirm they are open, as late snow melt-off can delay the road opening sometimes up to two weeks. Operating hours during the summer are 10am to 6pm.
The winter expected opening day is Sunday, December 6th and runs until April 3rd. Operating hours are 10am to 4pm daily until mid-February/March when it changes to 10am-6pm until April 3rd. During the winter months the hotsprings are accessible only via snowmobile, dog sled, skiing and via fat biking.
