Hot Springs State Park owes its beginning to a treaty between the Shoshone Indian tribe and the federal government. The Indians deeded a one square mile area that included the World's Largest Mineral Hot Springs, for the use by all--but with the proviso that a portion of the mineral water from the springs would be available free to anyone that...

By choosing hot springs to follow down the spine of North America into Mexico we've found some tremendous places, some I care to keep a secret. But the State Park Hot Springs in Thermopolis are a treasure if for no other reason than the springs are open to the public for free as part of an 1896 treaty signed with... More

The bisons might not feel like being on display, but that is the fascination of nature, isn't it? After driving around for a while, we managed to spot them.

There are many things to do in Thermop. You can swim, even when the weather is freezing, restaurants galore and the Hot Springs Park is fun to go through.

I would give the State Bath House no stars if I could. Every time and I do mean every time I have ever been there I have been treated rudely. They treat me like I am a child. The workers won't even let me look at what they have to offer. It's always something that they think I am doing... More

The park is convenient to town and hiway; very well kept; unusual mineral formations; good inexpensive pools for adults and children; good hot mineral baths. A special attraction is the "FREE Pool" which has both indoor and outdoor soaking. Again, fairly clean and has invalid access. The free pool is by Indian Contract for furnishing the land.

The Hot Springs are a wonderful creation of nature. The history surrounding it from the 1800's and the treaty from Chief Washake to the white man is very interesting. A lot of history here in Thermopolis!

A nice stroll around the hot springs with interesting birds makes a nice journey break. ANd there are a lot of local cafes in town.

My husband and I stopped here on our way to Jackson Hole on a whim. We loved it! When you've been stuck in the car for a few hours like we had, the hot springs were so refreshing! There is a soak limit of 20 minutes and you can soak inside or outside - but it's free, and you can't... More

You are in a historic spot when you visit these Hot Springs as the Native tribes already saw them as healing powers. There is no entrance fee for the Hot Springs following a treaty signed in 1896 with the Shoshone and Arapaho Indian tribes You can walk over the huge mountain of travertine deposits from the centuries of flowing hot...
