My husband and I took the guided tour of the Fordyce bathhouse. The park ranger was excellent, telling us about how things were done, between the baths, wrapping and cooling rooms, showing the difference between the men's and women's sides, and the gym. He was informative with humor, and more than willing to answer any and all questions. Since the baths we're considered medical treatment centers there were medical 'treatments' done that we would consider deadly today. Very interesting tour (allow about 2 hours to really see it all including the tour) and I would highly recommend. Best of all it's free!

Did the self guided tour. Able to see many of the rooms and areas of the bathhouse set up like they were in their prime. Interesting visit and look back into the history of the bathhouses.

It's something to see once in your life and nice to stop and see some history when you are walking down the main street area and its free. the state park rangers are really great!!

We enjoyed the tour of the bath house very much. The guide was well informed. The only negative about this visitor center is it wasn’t very helpful regarding other things to do in the city.

THE PARK RANGER MADE a tour that I thought only adults would appreciate. really fun for my two kids by including them in tour with what woud you do questions an answers. my wife and I were really surprised with all there was to learn about bath houses and hot springs in general. so never underestimate any national park treasures or the amazing people that work and share there time with you. makes great family vacations. THANK YOU TO EVERYONE THAT MAKES THIS POSSIBLE FOR ALL TO ENJOY.
