The vintage buildings add a sense of history, and the curators were friendly and relaxed. Lots of unique items for sale (spa supplies, books, robes, water jugs, walking sticks). Just up the block from a good cafe.

The national park visitors center is a beautiful building and former Hot Springs spa. The self guided tour allows you to view the baths and showers and parlors used years ago. There was a very informative film about the formation of the Hot Springs. Then, a trip through the park is beautiful. Wish we were there longer. Would have hit... More

A national park that is actually a well-preserved period in time. Very well done in a beautiful setting with attractive old architecture all around Historically interesting and a good collection of "scientific" health contraptions of the time. Well worth the visit.

My husband and I enjoyed this park so much. We have been to so many nation parks across the United States. We will be traveling back to Arkansas this summer and will visit it again!

Nice place to visit with a lot of entertainment options, especially if you enjoy camping, water sports or hiking. There are plenty of nice hotel and place to eat. Traffic can be a hassle if the horse racing is in season, because a lot of the streets are so narrow. However, getting around from one end of town to another... More

Hot Springs National Park is the smallest in the US National Park system; their headquarters on Bathhouse Row is a great place to learn of the possibilities for touring this historical, natural wonderland. The guide we visited with was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic.

I was pleasantly surprised by this national park. Being used to wilderness-type parks, it was refreshing to come upon something set inside a city. I didn't know this prior to visiting and it was a pleasant surprise! Hubby and I enjoyed the mountain trail and the tower; toured the bath houses and just soaked it in in the little bit... More

Our national parks range from Yellowstone to the Grand Canyon to civil war battlefields. Hot Springs National Park is a tricky one to rate. It's not the most scenic, it's right in the middle of the city of Hot Springs, and the much focus seems to be inside (gift shops and bathhouse) rather than outside. However, it does have an... More

We stopped off here on our trip. This is a quite little town with fountains everywhere. Something to see nature at work.

The visitor center in the Fordyce Bathhouse is a great place to start to learn all about the history of the area and the operations of the old bathhouses. The guided tour of the facilities is great for a start and then take time to look around the rest of the building on your own. The Superior Bath house microbrewery... More
