Mystic Hot Springs

To celebrate our five year wedding anniversary we decided to head down to Mystic Hot Springs in Monroe, Utah. It was so relaxing and we're so glad that we went! It feels like a blast from the past, like you went back in time to the 1970s.

It was about 2.5 hours away from us, so we were able to go there and back in the same day. Be prepared to lose cell service for some of the drive. We took screenshots of the directions beforehand to make sure we knew where to go.

It's located in a little town called Monroe. When you get there, you'll first go into the office to pay for your tickets. It's $16 per person and your pass will get you in for 6 hours. You really don't need it for that long there though.

There are bathrooms and changing rooms in the office, as well as a gift shop. I hate being in the car in my swimsuit for a long time, so I recommend changing when you get there. Don't forget to also bring a towel. They have some you can rent, I think for $2, but I definitely prefer to bring my own.

They have the main hot spring that you'll see first. It has a big orange rock with a waterfall down it. That's how the hot water gets into the pool.
It's only about 2-3 feet deep, which we loved. We were about to just hang out in it without having to swim around the whole time. The water was the perfect temperature. It was warm enough that you didn't get cold, but it also wasn't so hot that you would overheat and have to sit out of it to cool off.

From there, you can go up a hill a little and you'll find 6 bathtubs scattered around up there. When we were there not all 6 had water in them. I'm not sure why or if that's normal, but only 4 had water. The bathtubs are really big and can easily fit 2 people in them.

The water in the bathtubs isn't as warm as the main hot spring. We wished that it would have been just a little hotter, but it was still really nice. 3 of the tubs are in a row, but the other 3 are more spread out.

We loved how clean everything was. They clean the main pool once a week and the bathtubs everyday. 

Mystic Hot Springs is a must-do activity in Utah. We had so much fun and felt very relaxed after. We spent about 2 hours here and can't wait to go back for another visit.
