The drive to Thermopolis Wyoming is an adventure. You will drive in the Wind River Canyon and a half hour later arrive in the hot springs area. It is comprised of two hotels, bison land and an array of parks and springs. There are pools of hot springs you can lounge at, you can walk around the springs, and you... More

The water for this attraction leaves the spring at 128 degrees, It used to fall down the side of the mountain on a stepped water fall. Back in the early fifties, the state thought it would be good to pipe the water into swimming pools leased to operators who could add accoutrements like diving boards, spas, and slides. The result...

Thermopolis Wyoming is an excellent trip. It starts out with the Wind River Canyon (almost 30 miles) which is beautiful and intimidatingly awesome. Once you get into Thermopolis, you get the small town feel with friendly people. As you get close to the Hot Springs, you start to smell that familiar rotten eggs smell that lets you know you know...

We were surprised by this wonderful little park: great little peak with views and local lore, throwback mineral hot springs pool with water slides, lots of green areas. Sweet.

Very different than any other spring you will see or do. Spend the day there plenty to do and say for kids and adults.

The first stop we made was the bison viewing area. There's also a small cemetery and hiking trails in this area. The bison were in a fenced enclosure. I'm not sure if there were more roaming around. There were a spiderweb of roads in this area but no real direction as to where to go. Then we checked out the... More

We did the little walk and climbed Hot Springs Mountain (in the buffalo grasslands) and we were totally excited to get to the hot springs. If you can, I would recommend changing somewhere else and going in "ready to soak" b/c the bathroom gets so clogged up you'll wait 20 plus minutes to change (at least for women). Also, bring... More

Indoor or outdoor, have a free dip in a mineral hotspring pool. The place is spotless, well maintained. Its pretty crazy to sit in the outdoor pool and watch the steamy waters roll off the hillside and get collected into the pool. There is a limit to about 20 minutes, but trust me, that's all you need. We saw many... More

This was a really cool place to visit. Love the wild life. But the springs were the best park. What an invigorating soak.
