Great hiking all through the park. Make sure to go up in the Mountain Tower. Good views and so much history about the area that you can easily spend an hour there. Rangers are very knowledgeable and friendly.

I have been to most of the national parks in the mainland. This one needs a little help. Worth visitng but needs some updating.

Beware. This park isn't like any I've seen. It is like a town. Private businesses along the main strip. Traffic. NO parking for RVs. We had to leave it without seeing much .

Enjoyed the museum and walking along Bathhouse Row. Each house offered similar services. Some have gift stores with wellness products and souvenirs. I used the bathhouse services several years ago also and felt great afterwards.

It’s hard to explain how beautiful this place is. And to consider that the water we see bubbling up and out the side of the mountain is from the time the ancient Egyptians ruled the world is even more mind boggling. Hiking trails everywhere. Elevators...More

One of only two national parks set within a city, Hot Springs is so interesting and so historic. The entire park is so accessible and points back to such a great time in our history. One bathhouse is still operating, others are museums or businesses....More

Everywhere you go is beauty and much of it is in the National Park. Windy Roads with great places to stop and look out over forests. The tower overlooks the town and the country side. A must do, but make sure you bring your National...More

We had a great time recently in Hot Springs. It is a cool blend of nature (walking in the park) with the great food options offered in town. I've been coming here for years and the revitalized downtown is really something with easy parking just...More

The bathhouses in the park (downtown area) have ramps, so you could tour the historic Fordyce Bathhouse (park Visitors Center) and one bathhouse was a nice gift shop. There are also sidewalks along both sides of the downtown... More
