Warm Springs is a rural neighborhood of Anaconda, Montana, United States, and the site of the state psychiatric hospital, Montana State Hospital. The hospital was founded by the Territorial Government of Montana in 1877. The "warm springs" are located on the hospital campus. Hot water seeps from an unusual limestone cone that is about 40 feet high. The Native Americans called this the "Lodge of the Whitetailed Deer" giving the Deer Lodge Valley its name. There are no community services other than a restaurant and convenience store on the frontage road and a post office (zip code 59756) on the hospital campus. Excellent brown trout fishing can be found in the Clark Fork River just east of Warm Springs and in the ponds on the Warm Springs Wildlife Management Area. Warm Spings is also the name of a large freshwater spring located approx. 20 miles NW of Lewistown, Mt on a private ranch. During the summer, it is a local popular place to go swimming. The ranch charges a small entrance fee for the spring. Amenities include a picnic area shaded by large deciduous trees, boardwalks along a couple sections of the water, a gravel-bottomed shallow area of the spring for little kids, & several port-a-potty bathrooms.
