Hot Springs National Park, being an urban park in the center of the city of Hot Springs, is very different from your typical larger national park preserving some special element of our natural environment. Although Hot Springs cannot compare to a Yellowstone, Zion or even...More

Husband and I stayed three nights in Hot Springs (HS). We typically visit larger national parks, but decided to stay closer to home this time and I am so glad that we took a chance on HS. Yes, the park is small, but that makes...More

This is as one-trick pony as you're going to get with a National Park. No need to plan a vacation around visiting Hot Springs; swing by if you're in the area. You can get what you want from a day there. Maybe even a half...More

We enjoyed the small campground with full hookups and 50 amp. Right on a creek surrounded by trees very nice. Bathrooms but no showers. Self serve pay kiosk at entrance very accessible to downtown

The national park is a different kind of park. It’s in the middle of town. You can walk in different trails behind the bathhouses or you can tour the Fordyce bathhouse at no cost. The history of the bathhouses is very interesting.

More interesting than expected and real insight into America 100 years ago. Extensive use of private enterprise to provide services. Plus a look at some weird equipment from the past and beautiful craftsmanship.

Spent two weeks here on business and got to see some beautiful fall colors. While Bathhouse Row is a definite see, make sure to get up on the mountains and walk along some of the trails.

We went to Hot Springs over Veterans Day weekend. Although it was quite chilly, there were a number of other visitors about town, too. The walk down Bathhouse Row was beautiful, and the self guided tour through the Visitor's Center was one of the highlights...More

After visiting parks like Yellowstone and Rocky Mountain this is a totally different kind of park. It is part of downtown Hot Springs and part of Bathhouse Row. You don't have an entry fee-you just walk around the town. Kind of weird! There are parts...More

Yes, many of them. While I did not use one, we did go into a couple and checked them out. Many were not open on Sunday. I'm sorry it has taken so long to respond.

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
