Orvis Hot Springs

Orvis Hot Springs is your destination for relaxation in Ridgway, Colorado. We invite you to our clothing-optional, natural hot springs resort at the base of the San Juan Mountains, just down the road from Ouray and Telluride, where you’ll enjoy fresh mountain air and spectacular scenery while soaking in our ten unique pools and ponds.

Our natural lithium water, never heated nor treated in any way, enhances rest, relaxation and rejuvenation. Indoor and outdoor soaking areas feature water temperatures ranging from 65 to 112 degrees, to soothe your body and bring tranquility to your mind. When you’re wanting a deeper experience, we have a talented team of massage therapists to help you release tension and accelerate healing.

To make the most out of your visit, stay overnight in one of our beautifully appointed rooms, each with custom furniture, decor and linens. We also have a campground where guests can set up tents and a parking area for camping vehicles. All lodging and camping guests have 24-hour access to the hot springs, so can enjoy peaceful late nights or early mornings when you can quietly observe a star-filled sky, a sunrise or perhaps a meteor shower.


Whether you come to Ridgway specifically to soak in our natural hot springs, or you are here for an outdoor festival, mountain adventures or a vacation with family and friends, Orvis Hot Springs is a special oasis for refreshment under radiant Colorado skies. We look forward to welcoming you!

I’m torn between not wanting to post about Orvis because I don’t want to share this wonderful place with anyone else, and wanting so badly to tell everyone how great this place is! If I could give it 10 stars, I would! The pools are clean, hot, and varied, the water is relaxing, and the surrounding gardens are lovely and inspiring. The staff is always friendly, and the little extras like the community kitchen and free lockers help to make the experience here convenient, compared to some other natural hot springs I’ve been to. I can’t say enough good things about Orvis!!!
