McGill Pool

McGill Pool Overview

Summer in the desert means finding the best place to go beat the heat.

One of my favorites in Nevada is located in the small town of McGill in White Pine County near Ely, Nevada.

McGill Pool is fed by a natural hot spring this has been a destination for locals since its opening in the 1930s.

This small watering hole has everything! warm water, sandy beaches, slides for the kids, and even a DIVING BOARD.

Everyone in your family will have something to do in this small paradise.
