About Eldorado Springs

Eldorado Springs is a small town just south of Boulder. It’s home to Eldorado Canyon State Park and the historic Eldorado Spring swimming pool, which is fed directly from an artesian spring. This spring water is remarkably clear – awarded the Gold Medal for Best Municipal Water in the United States. If the name sounds familiar, you’ve probably seen Eldorado Spring Water bottled and delivered to homes and businesses. 

Eldorado Canyon State Park offers activities ranging from hiking and fishing to picnicking and sightseeing. With more than 500 rock climbing routes, Eldorado Canyon offers “the finest rock climbing in the country.” To enjoy the scenery in a relaxing environment, look for a hot air balloon tour or visit the restaurants in town.
