Where to soak in Arizona

The best hot springs in Arizona

Looking to shake off the dust and relax? Visit one of the amazing hot springs in Arizona, where people have been soaking in the all natural heated mineral water springs for thousands of years. Here are our picks for the top three hot springs in Arizona.

Arizona Hot Spring

This eponymous hot spring is located at Lake Mead, at the base of a gorgeous slot canyon, just south of Ringbolt Rapids. Please note that the hike can be strenuous, and the park does not recommend it during summer, for heat safety reasons.

El Dorado Hot Springs

Billing itself as “an oasis in the desert,” this rustic facility also offers gift certificates, on-site massage, and several private soaking areas for rent either by the hour or overnight.

Kachina Hot Springs

Located just outside Tucson, this resort has natural mineral baths in Roman-style tubs, and also offers massage and reflexology treatments.
