There are things to see and so, but the park is not worth a drive just to see it. If you are in Thermopolis fir the Hot Springs, by all means block out some time for the park. It is well maintained and a pleasant place to picnic or just relax.

The State Park has not been kept up as good as other parks that I've been to the sidewalks are in bad shape and the terraces don't look as good as they used to. At least the two pools look pretty good the TP has a brand new roof on it and it looks great. I have always loved going... More

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.
