I have been reading about different hot springs located in Southern Utah. I have always wanted to visit the Meadow Hot Springs in Meadow, Utah. This past weekend I was travelling back to my home in St. George from a fun visit to Snowbird and I found the perfect opportunity to stop and explore the hot springs.
Meadow Hot Springs is located just south of Fillmore, Utah in the quiet town of Meadow, near Kanosh. These hot springs are a unique, natural treasure out in an open field in the area. The hot springs are located on private property, but the landowner has made it accessible to the public. There is a walking path that connects three different pools.
The pools are crystal clear with the main pool getting as warm as 100 degrees. The pool water runs out of the hot springs to a small stream. The area has parking and a welcome sign from the property owner, as well as a reminder to keep the place clean and a donation box if you wish to contribute.
My daughter and I jumped into the main pool and the temperature felt like we were in a bathtub. There are rocks you can explore and sit on. Some people that were visiting the hot springs brought snorkel masks so that they could dive down and explore the caverns below. I am going to bring some the next time I visit Meadow Hot Springs.
We loved finding these unique, wonderful hot spring pools out in the middle of a field. It makes you wonder what else we are all missing. I highly encourage you to stop by and visit these hot springs. Even if you don’t jump in, you will enjoy these one-of-a kind pools in Utah.
Take the Meadow exit #158 on I-15. Turn left at the stop sign and go under the freeway. You will pass a gas station on the right. Keep heading south for about a mile and a half until you pass the last buildings in the town. After you leave town you will see a dirt road on the right. Turn right onto this road that will take you back over I-15. Drive 5 miles on the well maintained dirt road. You will see several roads cutting off of the dirt road, but you just stay on this road until you get to the parking lot. You can’t miss it!
