Nice place for an overnight

This park is well maintained and has places for picnics, walking paths, easy parking and nice grassy areas. Close to both pools.

Thermopolis is a small, quaint, relaxing destination. Not a lot to do, but relax or have fun outdoors. Try to catch a festival in the park, much fun. However, I've heard there are plans to renovate the park, eliminating the water park attractions, so we shall see.

The views through this park are definitely one of a kind. The natural hot springs and geysers have transformed the land into quite a marvel. There is a board walk throughout the park so you can walk and enjoy the entire area. The swinging bridge offers great different locations for wonderful pictures of the canyon and river.

Not much... More

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
