O my goodness, what a wonderful, beautiful, relaxing place. The grounds are so well-kept, with flowerbeds planted and cared for by someone who knows what they are doing. There is a rose garden which impresses me, as my roses don't look anywhere as nice as these. We admire the colors and varieties chosen in all the beds, and see that... More

I admit I go to Thermopolis mainly for the hot springs. I always stop at the 2 commercial hot springs in the park. The Star Plunge is my favorite, and the one I usually go to on the first day. However the park offers other things such as picnic areas, and hiking trails to break up your time in the... More

I've visited Hot Springs State Park many times over many years, and I always enjoy it. It's a great place for families, couples, and individuals. Stop and have a picnic, enjoy a walk, and take in the scenery.

We loved this place for walking, exploring, and soaking in the hot springs. Lots of free parking and easy to get to. Our hotel was right in the park which was really nice. A great fascinating place for all. Bring your camera.

Thermopolis... It's name gives it away. Except it's more than just hot pools. To start with its just beautiful scenery, there are Bison in the park which was incredibly exciting as we hadn't seen any up to this point as we were on our way to Yellowstone. The road wound around the park and the Bison were easy to find.... More

The roads are in need of maintenance so do somethe lighting this parks flowers are nice some. The walkways have very bad cracks and need repair people in wheelchairs find some of the walkways not very easy to go across. Along with terraces and behind the state bathhouse

A friend's recommendation changed our Wyoming itinerary to include Thermopolis on a road trip to Yellowstone. We LOVE this place! The rugged beauty surrounding the town holds the green valley surrounding the hot springs that pump out millions of gallons of water daily into the Bighorn River. Hot Springs Sate Park surrounds the spring's source; after touring the springs' terraces... More

Had a great visit to the state park. Walked across suspension bridge & around hot springs. Went to Tepee hot pool & spa. Meet lots of locals and attended a water aerobics class, too. Drove around in park where bisons roam.

Passing through in our way to Yellowstone, we stayed in Thermopolis and visited the park late one afternoon in Sept. It was pretty and peaceful and the hot springs were interesting, although we did not immerse ourselves in the bathhouse. Drive and walk some of the lesser known parts of the park for some great views.

This is a nice roadside attraction, but no much to do. It is a nice place to visit even better if you take a dip in the hot springs. If you want to have a picnic also good place.
