This is the number one park in the state. Probably cause the two pools bring people there. The park it self is below average compared to any other state park like in Colorado the park it self needs repair. Been here before and the park was in better shape 20 years ago. Roads cooling ponds terraces need attention. Days Inn... More

We saw buffalo, walked the mineral terraces boardwalk and the swing bridge before going for a soak. We chose to soak outside and the twenty minutes was over way too quickly. Nice way to spend a pretty day.

The park is OK but the kid stuff is better in riverton. The bath house is a joke for family with kids. So thank god for star plunge and tepee I would tell families not to go to bath house cause it is boring.

Thermopolis lies at the center of the largest concentration of hot springs in the world. On that note, it's curious that this state park, since - at first glance - seems almost ignored by the town. The central fixture is the State Bath House, free for all to use as part of a treaty signed by the indigenous tribes of... More

We drove thru the park and saw the buffalo- they came right up to the car. Got some great photos! We also parked and walked around the hot springs a bunch.

Not clean or kept up very well. Was disappointed even though it is a free facility, would rather pay to have better facility.

The Hot Springs park is a tranquil place that is off the tourist route. There are some warm pools to relax in, wildlife viewing, rock shops, a museum, hotels all enjoyable in a small town. We found it to be perfect for our small children. Certainly a welcome change from the hustle bustle of Yellowstone, Cody and Jackson.

This is one beautiful State Park. There are a couple of "pay" attractions in the park, never tried them. We always go to the Bath House for a "soak", walk the park, etc. Just remember to sign the guest book at the Bath House and to shower before you get in, and of course when you get out.

We came to Thermopolis for the hot springs. We knew there was more than just the hot springs, but didn't understand how large the state park really is. It runs along side the Big Horn river (where one can fish for trout) and includes the terraces where the hot mineral water has built up travertine benches and drapery over the... More
