We took the walking tour of the springs and suspension bridge. Great place for pictures of the Big Horn River and hot springs merging. Water coming from spring was very hot. Later we went to the state run pool where you can soak for 20 mins, no charge. Felt awesome! If I lived here I would come everyday. Strong sulphur... More

We stopped by to do a free soak in the public bath house. It was well run and very clean. You get 20 minutes, then you get out. The soak was amazing. The bison loop was ok but we saw no bison. When we left we did see a few on the side of the road. This place is full... More

We went here after the Star Plunge and I wish we'd have gone here first. This is a soaking facility and more for adults than the pool next door. It's free and twenty minutes is a plenty in good water.

The lady at the visitor's center was nice and helpful. The walk along the boardwalk was interesting and pretty. The drive through the hills had us bump into buffalo. And a dip in the hot springs was unique.

The mineral springs are FREE for a 20 minute soak. The water temp is checked on a regular basis and the pool seems to be kept up. We went to the outdoor pool, they have an indoor pool also.Other features of the park are a suspension bridge that crosses the river, it sways as you walk but not enough to... More

While fishing in Thermopolis we stopped and walked the hot springs. Of course if you go on into Yellowstone you will see many more but for a easy roadside visit, it is worth the 1/2 hour stop. Nice place to picnic and there are some nice pools and slides in water parks for the kids. No cost except if you... More

The Intruders Park needs a little work it's rather dated you see a dog park and it's weed infested and poor parking. I went that night too so I could see the new swinging Bridges lights they are very nice but I noticed that the lights by the flower gardens are in need of repair so why should they have... More
