Instead of bashing this park, please take the following in to account... All of April and may we had rainy bad weather to get anything worked on. Oh, let's talk about potential flooding upstream and why the river was over the banks in some places. You want to bash this park due to acts of nature delaying progress. Get a... More

The bath house is free. You can soak for 20 minutes. Granted it's hot water, but I'm not interested in being in a big bowl of people soup without chlorine. There was a little construction going on when we were there, but it didn't affect anything. There also wasn't a lot of people wandering around the springs, so I guess... More

Construction going on in peak season, sidewalks torn up or no access, needs more access for persons with disabilities as I am the father of an adult child with significant disabilities. Potholes in the roads in the buffalo pasture. This is NOT the state park I grew up with and loved back in the 80's!!

Why do we decide to fo any type of upgrade to the state park during peak season? To say the least when you vanf even get to everything to see it due to the irresponsibility. Not to mention the watering in the dead of the heat to burn up the grass and waste water. Maybe if there was a man... More

I went to the park in the middle day and was disappointed to see the sprinklers by the big spring running. Not only could I not enjoy walking through the area, it seems like a very wasteful thing to be watering in the heat of the day

This a such a great place. First it's free, there is a $1 charge for towels. It's the perfect way to sooth a tired back from hours of driving. The kids liked it but it's more geared towards the adult age group.

Very unique area of formations. The park itself is very well groomed and is very accommodating for walking, picnics and special events.

We by chance went on a random walk and followed a sidewalk we found but we ended up at this park. The river is very high right now so be carefull espically if you have children. We had a nice walk and saw some cool things along the way!

The hot springs state park at Thermopolis is free to all comers. We had heard of the hot springs from relative who had been there. There are two chain hotels inside the park, more outside the park as well as camping. Inside the park are three swimming locations, one free (very basic) and two that you pay for. Both of... More

The park is quite extensive with lots of lush grass, beautiful trees, picnic pavilions and walking trials.
