Hot Springs State Park

After a day of vigorous hiking or biking, Hot Springs State Park is the place to recover.

This day-use park at the edge of downtown Thermopolis is named and renowned for hot mineral springs credited with palliative powers. Visitors may soak in these restorative waters at the State Bath House free of charge (there is a nominal fee for towel and swimsuit rentals).

A sculpture commemorates the signing of a treaty with two Native American tribes that first established public use of the springs.

Hot Springs State Park is also known as the home of one of Wyoming's state bison herds. Motorists, hikers and cyclists use the four miles of roads through the buffalo pasture to view the shaggy animals.

The Big Horn River is another recreation resource for the park. A walkway follows the river. Canoeists, tube riders and boaters use the boat ramp on Pioneer Street.

There is also a fish pier, from which anglers try for brown and rainbow trout, among other species. The boat ramp and the fish pier are wheelchair-accessible.

The park's flower beds are another attraction, as is the Swinging Bridge over the Big Horn.
