Beautiful little park with a humble, but free, hot springs pool house. The state run pool house was clean (from a woman's point of view) easy to access, nice views of the mineral pools and surrounding hills. The park; also clean and nicely maintained, kid safe and fun volcano like things to look at.

The park is free and beautiful. I would recommend putting on some sunscreen and walking a lot of the natural paths, including the swinging bridge. It's really cool to see how the hot springs flow and how they used to flow. There's a buffalo range and it was beautiful in of itself, let alone when the buffalo's are roaming! We... More

What a lovely park! On one side there's all the traditional picnic tables, flower beds, lawn etc, and on the other side all the volcanic stuff. It's totally immaculate! Amazing mineral domes, volcanic terraces and great views across the Big Horn River. There are some pay-for swimming pools there, but if what you want is a mineral bath soak, the... More

Nice hot springs, but one pool was too hot, so beware. Also as these are "natural" hot springs, there is lots of moss in the water. However its free, and there are change rooms and showers right next to the pools.

The State of Wyoming Bath House is a free attraction and one we went back to during our visit to Wyoming. Soaking in the healing waters was a true comfort for this family of travelers. It wasn't crowded. The facility was clean and the employees we met there were not just nice they were helpful. We ended up spending extra... More

I love the Hot Spring State Park. Been going there since I was a child - and still love going there. Hope it stays as wonderful as it has always been. Going there again in 2 weeks. Love to do early morning drives out through the buffalo preserve and by the Big Horn River. So quiet and peaceful!

We spent a night in the park and walked on most of the trails. We also took the short driving tour where we were able to see the small herd of bison and see more hot springs. It was fascinating seeing the limestone that had been deposited by past hot springs, and also to see the hot water joining the... More
