Worth a stop...and it won't take long.

Very nice, compact park that is beautifully maintained. In about 30 minutes, you can walk the boardwalk trail up to the sulfur springs and the suspension foot bridge. Add another... read more

This park is like an oasis in Wyoming. The entrance fee to the park is free. There are two swimming pools with slides which would be great for kids (there is a fee for these pools). I saw a lot of people picnicing in the park who were also using the swimming pools. The swimming pools are open until 9:00PM... More

This park is large and well kept. You can walk on a boardwalk along the path of the hot springs and walk across a suspension bridge. There is a bath-house where you can sit in the hot spring water for 20 minutes (It's 104 degrees) for free. There are also a couple of hot spring facilities that have varied temperatures... More

Very nice, compact park that is beautifully maintained. In about 30 minutes, you can walk the boardwalk trail up to the sulfur springs and the suspension foot bridge. Add another 10 minutes if you want to read up on the geothermal phenomena that created this gem. Many, of course, will want to change into a swimsuit and enjoy the sulfur... More

This is a nice park thanks to Teepee pools and The Star. This is a below average park because roads are in bad shape and the entry of park looks horrible. The first impression is most important and this park has dropped the ball. No basket ball no tennis.

State park is free. Great place to make lunch, walk the grounds (animals and hot springs.) There is a bath house with indoor and outdoor soaking hot spring tubs- free.

Having grown up here in the summers, and on family reunions, I always enjoy strolling through the state park any time of the year. The smell is always a big issue to those who have never been around springs before, but you'll get over it quick. Cant leave the state park without walking over the swinging bridge as well as...

This is a hidden gem nest to small town America. It's a fun place. There is hiking and enjoying the river area and viewing it. There is also the hot springs to enjoy. We did not enter the hot springs this time. The park does not have an entry fee or parking fee. If you use the hot springs pool... More

One of my favorite places to visit. Very family friendly, have a picnic, ride a bike, take a walk, sit under a tree and read a book, walk over the bridge, so much to do, so little time.

Thermopolis has a number of privately owned hot baths, and I expected that would be how we would enjoy them. I was very pleased to learn that the state has control of the extensive mouth of the springs with boardwalks for tourists so we don't mess up the natural growth of heat-loving organisms that give the area such vivid color....
