The water is wonderful, come on in!

Really enjoyed a soak in the awesome mineral water. After 400 miles that day on the motorcycle it was a god send. People are really nice and the area is beautiful.

Marked 1 thing off my bucket list. 1 off my husbands list also, and he didn't even know it was on his list. Enjoyed the soak in the hot spring, they volunteers were very knowledgeable and helpful. We did not have towels and they had them for rental for visitors. It was relaxing. Went for a drive around the park... More

What an amazing place. It is a very special experience to cross the bridge that is built there. We got to see lots of water creatures. It was just very peaceful.

While in Thermopolis, a must visit to the Hot Springs State Park. It's a very mini Yellowstone where you can see the source of the Hot Springs. There is a boardwalk to walk around The Terraces on your way to the Suspension Bridge over the Big Horn River. Of course, you will want to take a dip in the refreshing... More

We walked around the Hot Springs and across the suspension bridge. The state park representative was very friendly and helpful. We did not take the 20 min hot springs soak at the bathhouse, but it looked neat. We took a drive through the back of the park and saw the heard of bison. Overall, a great start to a visit... More

I absolutely loved walking around the hot springs! I could have stayed so much longer. I was unable to go to the bath house to soak in the water, but there was something so tranquil about being here! I will definitely be back an next time will plan on enough time to soak in the water!

The state park pools are free (one indoor and one outdoor). The staff is friendly and the changing rooms were very clean. You can rent a towel for $1 and are allowed 20 minutes.

Grounds were very well kept up and clean. The flowers were beautiful. The largest hot mineral spring is located here. The park has three hot mineral pools, two charge entry fee, but the bath house hot pool is free. The park does smell from the hot mineral springs, but you get use to it quickly. They have walking paths, a... More
