Springs at Sulphur Springs

A major part of Sulphur Springs National Park is the sulfur springs themselves. They formed from a weak spot in a collapsed crater over 410,000 years ago. Today, the water that exists in the crater is black and about 340 degrees Fahrenheit.

Just down stream from the main tourist area at Sulphur Springs is a portion of water that measures in temperature at a much nicer 110 degrees Fahrenheit. Said to contain the healing properties of the iron, calcium oxide, sulfur, copper oxide, carbon, and magnesium mixture, many tourists take a dip and give themselves a mud bath.
