It's like a mini Yellowstone. The pools and flows are fascinating. The boardwalk and bridge across the river are fun. The free public pool is really hot, especially next to the outflow. The grounds are nice. There's a loop drive to go up and see old sinkholes where springs used to be, and a rumor of bison. The original treaty... More

Picnicked in the park with our kids. Nice shelters, picnic tables and BBQ grills. Great place for them to wander around and see the mineral springs. The bridge and the falls were fun. They also enjoyed the playground. Great empty place to view bison up close ( in your car) without crowds or traffic.

We went to the State Bath House, where you can take a 20 minute soak in the hot springs free of charge (except for a towel fee - bring your own towels!). There's an indoor and outdoor pool. Very strong sulfur smell, which is to be expected with natural springs, but it may surprise some with how overwhelming the smell... More

We went to the State Bath House and it was really good. It was super clean and the pools were great. It has open showers and I didn't really see where you could change besides the bathrooms, but overall we enjoyed our visit. I think if you have children maybe you should go to the others near it, because this... More

This isn't what you think of when you hear state park. It's more of a little city park where you take kids to picnic. You can drive the whole "park" in 20 minutes. It mainly consists of the free public soaking hot springs, a pay play hot springs, a picnic area and short drive up the hill to see two... More

We had a little time to kill so we went to the hot springs. The springs themselves flow into the Big Horn river and the scenery with the river is quite nice. We also took a long soak in the water from the springs. The water in the soak part is 104 degrees. They also have a bigger swimming pools... More

We stayed at the Best Western next to Hot Spring State Park and walked through the park. It was very interesting and we loved the Hot Springs and walking paths.

This part should have a little bit more for things to do when it gets a little colder the sidewalks in certain areas need a little attention and it's pretty much like all other parks you would think that they would have more winter like things like maybe a Museum inside for people who go to this park on the...

The bath house is free! There is a lot to do if you are outdoorsy. We drove 21 miles to see the petroglyphs. Well worth it. We spent time in town. Many good places to eat and some nice shops. One Eyed Buffalo has great bloody Mary's! Black Bear Cafe has a good breakfast and home made desserts. Our hotel... More

This facility is fantastic and free. We arrived early in the morning and there were only three other people there. The staff person was friendly and helpful.The dressing room and pools were clean and well kept. I hope this park can maintain the hot springs for the public to use. We wondered why they do not charge a small fee... More
