Norris Hot Springs is a bluegrass oasis in Southwest Montana

Norris Hot Springs is a Montana geothermal wonder. Travelers discover a unique place to relax, refresh and enjoy in every season. Located in the small community of Norris, Montana, at the crossroads of some of the Big Sky Country’s most scenic drives. West Yellowstone to Helena, Butte to Bozeman, with the Lewis and Clark Caverns and the majestic Madison River minutes away. What’s the pool water like? Expect 105 degrees F all winter (a little cooler in the summer) adjusted by cooling sprays to perfection as the changing weather demands.

Reward yourself after hiking, fishing, floating, climbing, biking or skiing. A long soak in the Water of the Gods is not only good, it’s good for you! On a hot day, have a dip in the naturally clean mineral water, play in the sprinklers and sprayers that cool the pool, or sit in the shade and sip something cold. Enjoy the view from the patio and pool – watch for deer, antelope, and moose in the surrounding wetlands. Eagles, hawks, Sandhill cranes, egrets, ducks, geese, and songbirds are all part of the natural wonder that is Norris Hot Springs.

Delicious and reasonably priced food and snacks, are available too as are fine wines and cold beer. These are served up to lucky soakers and can be enjoyed in the shade of an umbrella or in the No Loose Dogs Saloon. They even rent suits and towels.
