Homestead Crater

The Homestead Crater formed when melting snow on the Wasatch Mountains seeped deep within the earth. Two miles below the surface, the earth’s interior heated the water. As it percolated upward, it picked up minerals, which were then deposited on the surface.

No wildlife. The water stays at a constant 90 – 96 degrees Fahrenheit. Reservations are required to dive.
