The Saratoga "Hobo Hot Pool" is a
favorite among locals and visitors alike.
Open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and FREE to the public, the pool is
owned and maintained by the Town of Saratoga. The newly remodeled bath
house is complete with
showers and bathroom facilities at the Hot Springs.
The addition of a "not-so-hot" pool has greatly
increased the enjoyment of the facility. This smaller pool has an
average temperature of 100°. This is perfect for younger children or
those who just prefer a slightly cooler temperature.
Original inhabitants of the Valley, the
American Indians, used the hot springs as a neutral area and believed that
the hot springs had a healing power. The hot pool averages around 106°
F from its coolest part to 119° F to its warmest part of the pool. The
pool is now used as a place to relax and enjoy.
The Saratoga Municipal Swimming Pool, one of the few
remaining outdoor pools in Wyoming, is located adjacent to the Hobo Pool.
The municipal pool is open seasonally from late May until early September.
For pool hours and swim rates, please contact the Town of Saratoga
