Mystic Hot Springs

Natural hot springs in Monroe, Utah. Soothing soaking, grassy tent campsites, pioneer cabins, tropical fish ponds, hiking, biking & more!

Mystic Hot Springs - Monroe, Utah, Sevier County, Southern Utah, Health & Wellness, Concerts, Music, Acoustic, Camping, Hiking, CabinsMystic Hot Springs creates an authentic environment which raises self-awareness by direct experience with nature, art and antiquities.

Producer/Director/Artist Mike Ginsburg was traveling in his bus back to Denver from the last Vegas Dead shows in 1995, when he stumbled into Mystic Hot Springs. Instantly he realized that everything he was looking for was right there. Miraculously he was able to purchase the resort. Having worked since 1996, he is still at it! His artistic talent has been used to add new Soaking areas, restore pioneer Cabins, promote many wonderful Concerts, produce DVD’s, create stunning Lampwork glass Jewelery and bring a special energy to this wonderful place.

History of Mystic Hot Springs

The Indians that were in this area were nomadic bands from the Ute, Shoshone or Piute tribes. They would make their camps on the warm ground near the hot springs. They would soak in the springs for warmth and comfort. It is told that the Indians would paint themselves with the red mud to keep them safe. Later as the settlers arrived the hot springs became popular as a resting place along the “Old Spanish Trail”.

Mystic Hot Springs - Monroe, Utah, Sevier County, Southern, Concerts, Festivals, Music, Acoustic, Outdoor Camping, HikingHomesteaded in 1886 by the Cooper family, Mystic Hot Springs (formerly known as Monroe Hot Springs) has gone through many changes in the past 100 years. During the early part of the century a collecting pool was made of wood at the bottom of the hill. Soon a dance floor was added and people would come from miles around in their horse and buggys to dance and soak the nights away. Their motto “The home of mirth and merriment” still rings true today.

When Mike first began running the hot springs, there was only one cabin on the property (the Grow cabin). He knew he needed more of them because he rented it frequently. When he realized how much new cabins would cost, he started poking around the valley thinking he may be able to aquire old shacks from the 40’s or 50’s. The first building he purchased was one of the first Pioneer cabins in the valley from 1865. He was amazed that anyone would want to part with such a unique piece of history. He came to realize that a lot of people in the area see them as eyesores, and many cabins have already been destroyed to make room for things such as parking lots. He started acquiring more of them, especially the ones that seemed to not be cared for.

Festival of Lights

Festival of Lights, Spanish Fork, Utah

Sri Sri Radha Krishna Temple

Classical and folk-dancing, live music, dramas, a ceremony of lights, a huge vegetarian feast, and offering of respects to a live cow.

The Festival of Lights occurs during the lull between fall harvests and the onset of the monsoons. Thus it is a time of thanksgiving, and that corollary festival is called Anna Kuta (literally meaning “heaps of food”). Lord Krishna inaugurated this festival by inspiring the inhabitants of His village (Vrndavan) to worship the cows on this one day per year and to prepare a huge celebratory feast consisting of no less than 108 preparations.

Guests are encouraged to prepare vegetarian dishes at home (without onions or garlic) and bring them to the temple to augment the devotional offerings. Optionally, one could bring fruits, or flowers.
