Riverbend HOT Springs for families?

How receptive is Riverbend Hot Springs for families? Children 8 and 2 1/2? Would it be possible to have a relaxing time at all or would we be a nuisance for other guests. I read where kids were allowed and can use the community pools, but want some past guests take on this. We would be staying on-site.

Thanks

They have a large community pool that would be awesome for a family and you cannot beat the view Riverbend is right on the river. If you can sneak away for an hour rent a private tub for just you two rent the one with the stone tub and the hottest temp. If people want privacy they can rent the private pools the community pools are for everyone to enjoy.

They are pretty open to families. The 5 public pools range in temp from 100-101 up to 106-108 depending on time of day/year, and you can move about freely among them. So cooler temps for kids leaves hotter temps for grownups. I have been there when there were no kids, and lots of kids. Plus they have a nice patio area if you wanted to 'picnic' there instead of eating at a restaurant or in your room. Plus they are a non-smoking facility, even outdoors, so that's good for families. As an aside, if you go when the river's up and weather warm, consider a float down the river in inflatable kayaks!
