FOLLOW WILLY COSMO AS HE EXPLORES THE HEALING WATERS OF THE WORLD
JOE: Well this place was a trip and a half! Crystal Hot Springs is located about one hour north of Salt Lake City, Utah in the city of Honeyville. It proudly boasts having the highest mineral content of all Hot Springs and Mineral Springs in the continental United States. Here's the numbers on that:
This place was pretty awesome. It's not the kind of resort where you necessarily get all zen'd out (though you can, of course) as it is one of the most family friendly, laid back hot springs I've ever been to by far. It has two water slides for jimmy crickets, sake! With that said, the water is mighty potent, let me tell you. It's high mineral content makes it a produce a mild odor and makes you very buoyant which is fun because then you can really just float and lounge out while you soak. Joy absolutely loved the water slides and thankfully she was just old enough to enjoy them on her own. I went down with her a time or two and then she was brave enough to give it a whirl herself. It's definitely a great place to take the whole family.
This was a fun place to stay and I would recommend you do so if you're ever in the SLC area. They have several camping sites and RV spots to rent out as well and that is what we ended up doing. We camped out and the camping area is in a nice clearing above the grounds with a great view of the mountains and sunset, too. There's not much in the form of restaurants or any other activities close by though we did end up going to a bowling alley about 20 minutes drive from there for dinner the night we were there. That was fun, it was an air conditioned run of the mill bowling alley with pizza and beer and during that hot spell, it was a very welcome place to cool off and bowl.
In all this place was really quite enjoyable. We look forward to going back one day and bringing Willy Cosmo along, he's going to love it. It's casual, laid back, family friendly, and a whole lot of fun. The healing waters of this place are exceptional, with the highest mineral content in all of the US of A, you really are in for a treat when you visit Honeyville, Utah and go to Crystal Hot Springs.
