Located at a fifteen minute drive away from downtown Colorado in an experiential resort offering five hot springs where vacationers and holiday goers can go in for a dip. The resort aims to stick to a more natural philosophy as much as possible and tries to avoid leaving a huge carbon footprint in many ways such as providing very few artificial light options and urging guests to ring in their own flash lights.  The stone built walls and bridges provide truly rugged appearance which is a delight to any avid nature lover.

"We want to keep the rustic atmosphere. We want people to be able to enjoy the hot springs as if they were in the natural environment somewhere out in the middle of the woods.We've got 40 acres here that happens to have some of the best hot springs around, and we have developed a park in a very minimalistic fashion. It's all built tucked into the top of the valley surrounded by snow-covered aspens and fir trees,”Joe Stepan, Strawberry Park's general manager, told CNN Travel.

The hottest water coming up at a certain gap between the stones is 150 degrees whilst the coolest is at 40 degrees; hence, providing natural temperature regulation.
