What state has the most hot springs in the U.S.?

With 60+ hot springs, you might think Montana has the most hot springs in the country… but not quite! The answer might surprise you: Nevada! Nevada has more hot springs than any other state in the country, with more than 300 occurring naturally. Many can be found in Northern Nevada. If you’re headed that way, we recommend checking out our Nevada Hot Springs Road Trip, which visits 10 of the Silver State’s most noteworthy hot springs!

What are some hot springs resorts in Montana?

Take your hot springs experience in Montana to the next level by visiting on of our many amazing hot springs resorts. Fairmont Hot Springs Resort is one of our favorites. The resort is open year-round, but it makes a particularly perfect winter destination. The resort has two oversized Olympic swimming pools and two mineral soaking pools, all of which are fed by a virtually unlimited supply of 155-degree natural hot spring water cooled to various temperatures for comfort. The spacious guest rooms will comfortably accommodate your family, and your rate includes access to all pools, the fitness center, and the onsite restaurants and bar. Relaxing in these warm mineral pools while snow falls all around you is as magical as it sounds — and an experience for your MT bucket list!

What are some hot springs that are open year-round in Montana?

While there’s nothing that quite compares to a hot springs soak during the cold winters in Big Sky Country, we enjoy our heated pools all year round! This list has some of the best hot springs in the state; Spa Hot Springs Motel is a great one that’s open all year long. Of course, we’d be remiss not to mention Yellowstone Hot Springs, easily the state’s most iconic and well-known natural spring. Settled between two mountain ranges and nestled on the banks of the Yellowstone River, this property simply radiates peace and serenity, and is an absolute must-visit!
