On The Way to Yellowstone

Fairmont Hot Springs Resort Halfway between Yellowstone and Glacier National Parks

A favorite midpoint stop on your Yellowstone to Glacier road trip, the resort is really a destination all its own. Enjoy a full-service resort that provides golf, swimming, water slide, lodging and venues for conventions and gatherings.


We hope you brought your swimsuit because when you’re tired from a long day of sightseeing, or when the kids have too much energy, one of the best ways to unwind is with a dip in a hot springs pool.

In Montana, head to Fairmont Hot Springs Resort for a day of swimming and sliding. Fairmont has two Olympic-size hot springs pools—one indoors and one outdoors—plus a 350-foot, five-story enclosed waterslide. It’s an exhilarating ride into Fairmont’s outdoor pool, and you’re guaranteed to make a splash. The 160°F, naturally heated water is cooled to temperatures ranging from 88°F to 104°F.

Kids can recover from a day in the car by riding the waterslide or playing in the large shallow sections, while adults can unwind in the hotter soaking pools.

Pools are open 24 hours a day to registered guests. Public admission hours are 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. (closing time varies seasonally).

Large dressing rooms, steam rooms, fitness room, lockers and a snack bar complete Fairmont’s pool facilities. Just three miles from I-90, 15 miles west of Butte, Fairmont’s pools are open year-round and are part of Montana’s only full-service hot springs, golf, and convention resort.

After drying off, head to the resort’s 18-hole golf course named by Golf Digest as one of the “Best Places to Play.” There’s also a great playground for children on site and tons of green lawn to run on and play.

During the past decade its owners have invested more than $11 million in upgrades to guest rooms, the dining room and the indoor pool, with renovations to all guest hallways and three suites debuting summer 2019.
