In late October of this year, we spent three days at the Fountain of Youth RV Park.
We were drawn to the Park by our AAA travel guide which gave it a 3 star rating and a glowing review. Also, we liked the idea that...More
Avoid this place at all costs. You might as well drive through the night because if you stay here, you will end up leaving at 5 am after having gotten no sleep at all, only now it will be the next day and you'll still...More
Rolled up on it blind not knowing what to expect! Had a BLAST! Didn't you see the railroad tracks following the road to Fountain of Youth Campground? And as far as the only place around that is totally not the case! It's Wyoming. I found...More
I agree with the other review about the train tracks literally running right next to the park. The bathrooms were tiny, not very clean, and extremely dark and rustic. It didn't ever seem that there was anyone there to help you at the store and...More
Look at my photos to see that the trains literally run right next to your RV, so forget about sleeping at night. This is the first RV Park I've stayed at where I had to pay for the shower right inside the shower. The bathrooms...More

When I went several years ago the price for my very small camper and 3 adults was $40. We all embraced the fact that this place is a natural hot spring environment therefore there will be an odor, not always. The facilities are dated but the surrounding hills, the ride in from route 20, the staff, the Camp shows on the stage at night, the other campers all added to an experience that screams of 1950’s and for that I very much enjoyed this place. My expectations are usually low since I’m camping of course. This is a place where you can shed pretensions and you have to do some things yourself. Overall, when you consider how well the pools have been arranged, the constant flow of the pools to keep them fresh and the safety of the pools this is a pretty good deal. I’ve been to hot springs that were in their natural state and there was jeopardy of getting in too deep and hurting yourself.
I highly recommend Fountain of Youth because of it’s corniness above all and it is just another of the many adventures on your vacation that will be with you the rest of your life, a good story to tell. As many of you already know, many things you experience while camping are much better when the season is over and you’re talking about it over Thanksgiving dinner. Go off the beaten path and savor the slow pace of getting to and from Fountain of Youth and then continue on your trip knowing you have stepped back in time.
Happy trails campers,
