I definitely prefer Cottonwood, but I know folks that like the creek side pools at Princeton better. They are probably inundated currently by Chalk Creek. The Princeton Club is really nice, but something like $30 a day.

Cottonwood has really nice, river rock lined cascading pools, but their facilities are a bit old and run down.

Cottonwood has more of a local vibe; low-key place with a couple of great pools, close to Buena Vista. It's a little worn, but I find that to be part of the charm. I prefer going here.

Princeton is waaayy more ritzy, and expensive. It does, however, have some nice amenities such as a steam room and cold plunge. It's a whole different experience.

It really depends on what you prefer.

If you have time I really liked Wanuita. Followed by Cottonwood.
