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

On our way to Yellowstone we stayed in Thermopolis,Wy. and visited the Hot Spring State Park. They have several mineral hot spring pools, some were free others had a fee. I used the free bath house and found it very relaxing, similar to a hot tub, but better. The Bighorn River flows right thru the park and is a very... More

This is a fabulous, beautiful park area to spend an afternoon. The drive around the back side will usually have buffalo, deer, antelope, rabbits, and other critters to enjoy. The baths in the park are free, but you can only stay 20 min. and the water is very hot. So if you only have a limited amount of time, this... More

The roads are horrible! They need to be fixed before they cause a accident. They need to get on cleaning the park. It's filthy.
