Geothermal activity is evident throughout this region, and hot springs can be found in numerous locations along the western slopes of the Wasatch Mountains. Crystal Hot Springs is a resort built around one of these natural hot springs 13 miles north of Brigham City in the town of Honeyville. It is said that the area was used as a winter campsite by the Shoshone Indians of the region. Then, as the transcontinental railroad was being built, Chinese workers found the springs and built cedar tubs to capture the waters to provide soothing mineral baths. The first commercial development of the springs was in 1901. The resort now features modern attractions such as water slides in addition to its traditional soaking pools. Camping facilities are available with and without hookups.
