- General info
Lolo Hot Springs Indoor and outdoor pools are located on a private resort and open to the public year round with an admission fee. Lolo hot springs has a history longer than Montana. The first written record of visitors to Lolo Hot Springs were Lewis and Clark in 1805. In journals, Captain Clark described the wildlife, hot water, and bathing hole made by local Indians, but did not have time to linger. They were desperate to cross the Continental Divide before winter set in. On their return from the Pacific Coast the following June, Clark wrote about the soaks and bathing when the members of the Corp of Discovery enjoyed more leisure time. The hot springs and trail were later named after a French fur trapper, Lolo, who trapped beaver in the nearby streams. The springs were popular through the 1800s and 1900s closing in 1964, and reopening in 1988 when the current owner purchased the resort.
