Granite Hot Springs Swimming Pool – Bridger-Teton National Forest WY
In 1933, Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) workers stationed in the Bridger-Teton National Forest constructed the Granite Hot Springs Swimming Pool recreational site by building a deck, changing room, and campground around the natural springs.
Today, the Granite Hot Springs Swimming Pool is used by tourists and Wyoming residents alike. Water temperatures range from 93° in the summer to 112° in the winter.
A historical marker placed near the site describes the CCC’s work on the swimming pool.
No doubt, the deck has been renovated over the years.
