a review of both town and 'park' .We have traveled to many national parks as my wife is national park freak.we decide to stop in here because we were in area and it had the "national park" title.we had heard it was small and insignificant but we were pleasantly surprised.The town was quaint and lovely.The bathhouses were an interesting part of history.We hiked and enjoyed the entire day.

Awesome day trip to take the dogs. Hands down a must if you're in the area. You can have an easy to difficult hike depending on where you go. Try the hot spring water while you are there.

We met a great park ranger at the front desk who was very helpful. We were pleased to find the exhibits open and a passport stamp was available for us avid stampers! Parking was relatively easy because we went during a down time.

If you are expecting amazing panoramic views and wildlife like most other natural parks, change your expectations! Hot Springs National Park, while it has a few hiking trails and scenic drives (which you can find many other places), the highlight is the historic bathhouses that’s line bath row. We spent a few hours there and went into the museum at the visitor center, checked out the couple springs you can see, and got some lunch. It’s an interesting town but the history is fascinating. You don’t be disappointed but don’t expect what other national parks typically offer!

Actual hot spring interaction is almost none. There’s one place they direct the springs for tourists to touch and see, it’s very small and crowded (in December). It wasn’t as I imagined, not very nature based, however there are many hiking trails on the mountain if you want to hike and view trees and plants. There’s a lot of history, the Junior Ranger program is neat (ask at visitor center about it).

Nice rangers, lots of great information and a few things to purchase if you are looking for that. Definitely worth the stop in.

Most different. One way traffic up and down the mountain. Basically goes to the tower. Very curvy and you cannot take a long RV up it! Believe me! We saw someone try and they were stuck for a very long time. We had to leave before they got unstuck. Picnic areas. Nice drive even if you don’t go in the tower. Fee to go up tower, but it’s worth it. Muesum and indoor viewing area on one level and then the top viewing area. Be warned elevators are small and the tower sways. You don’t notice it until you start reading the plaques. Not bad though unless you have those issues. Nice gift shop. Parking up at the tower. Lots of walking trails to the top.

A lot of the recent reviews disparaged this Park but I enjoyed it 100%. There were lots of good signs, interpreters, and everything was free! ARRIVE EARLY if you come on a holiday or a weekend! We arrived at 9am and got perhaps the last free parking. By the time we left town, around 11:30am, the town was getting packed, and we do not like crowds. We mainly walked around the town and visited the Fordyce Bathhouse. The hot springs down at the fork of Central and Fountain are VERY cool, or should I say hot! And there's lots and lots of walking trails behind it that we did not have time to explore. I would recommend a whole day here! The Mountain Tower BTW does cost $$. If you have a National Park pass, you get a discount, as do kids.

Beautiful place for a family get away. Have fun hiking and spending time in the bath houses. We came the last week of November and the trees were spectacular!

We only had time to visit the tower, west mountain and the bath houses. We did not get any spa services from the bath house, but everything else was free- from the parking to the bath house museum. They have local stores around the park area which are very cool. I enjoyed the magical scenery, the atmosphere and the drive. It’s a small town, but it has a lot of things to explore.
