Long Description:
The Saratoga Springs are on the northwest shore of Utah Lake. An early settler of this area was John C. Nagle who owned the natural warm springs. The ranch and springs were then purchased by the John Beck family who resided there for many years. In 1884 Beck's Saratoga Springs Resort, named for the famous New York resort, opened with several buildings including an amusement park. The park was enjoyed from the 1880's until the foods of 1984 closed the park.
-See Recreation: (visit link)

Today the original buildings are gone, however, a new clubhouse, outdoor pool, bowery with kitchen facilities have been built as part of a private development: Saratoga Springs.

We have fond memories of the old Saratoga Hot Springs & Amusement Park. Family and group outings took us there regularly during the years of our childhood and youth. It was sad for us to see it go.
