5. Mr. Bubbles Hot Spring
Mr. Bubbles Hot Spring is a wonderful hot spring in Wyoming located halfway down the Bechler River Trail in the southwestern portion of Yellowstone. It’s a 30-mile round-trip hike either from the Bechler Ranger Station or from Old Faithful. From Three Rivers Junction, take a 1/2-mile trail along the Ferris Fork River. The hot spring is on the right. Always check with the Ranger Station regarding the temperature of the water and do not hike this trail at night.

6. Kelly Warm Springs
The view of the Tetons at Kelly Warm Springs is amazing. The water here falls in the warm range and the spring is actually deep enough to swim in. The spring is easy to access and shallow enough for children. Kelly Warm Springs is east of the Grand Tetons in the Jackson Hole region of Wyoming. The spring is on Gros Ventre Road, on the south side. Above is a video of the swimming hole by YouTube user squareglow.

Hot Springs You Can Swim in Near Yellowstone
Where are the best waterfalls in Wyoming?
With more than 500 amazing waterfalls scattered all over the state, Wyoming is a waterfall chaser’s dream come true. Of those 500 waterfalls in Wyoming, almost 50 are located within the beautiful Yellowstone National Park. The cascades at Yellowstone are surreal in their beauty, and we do have a few favorites to share. Head to the amazing Terraced Falls for a time you won’t soon forget, or make the trek to either the Upper Falls or the Lower Falls of Yellowstone River. Some waterfalls plunge into delightful pools you’re welcome to dip your toes into, and others are mostly inaccessible and are best seen from a distance. No matter what, though, these incredible Wyoming waterfalls are a sight to behold.
Are there any cool waterfalls you can swim at in Wyoming?
As we alluded to above, yes, there most certainly are waterfalls you can swim at in Wyoming. A couple of our go-to spots for those warm days when we feel like taking a refreshing dip include the incredible Porcupine Falls, which is a 70+ foot tall cascade careening from a canyon and into a refreshing pool, which is quite the popular swimming hole in Wyoming. Chances are you won’t be alone for that one! Then, there’s the geothermally warmed Ouzel Pool, which is fed by a secondary waterfall in close proximity to Union Falls.
