About Hot Springs

Rising from the Fall River Canyon are the mineral-rich hot springs that gave this city its name. Hot Spring, South Dakota, is a delightful location to unwind with nature and relax with the springs.

Start by enjoying the natural wonders of Hot Springs. You can swim behind the falls of Cascade Falls, explore the caves at Wind Cave National Park, and drive the wildlife loop at Custer State Park.

You may want to visit the Moccasin Springs Natural Mineral Spa for soaks in the hot springs or a yoga class if you are traveling solo or with your significant other.

Let the entire family enjoy the springs by visiting Evan’s Plunge, which features a swimming pool and slides! Your kids will never want to leave!
