For thousands of years, Wyoming’s natural hot springs have been revered attractions and used by Native American tribes, mountain men, early pioneers and settlers who found a welcoming oasis in the healing waters of the mineral springs. Today, you can visit the various hot springs in Thermopolis, Saratoga and Jackson Hole. Located in the charming town of Thermopolis, Hot Springs State Park is home to three soaking pools, including the Wyoming State Bath House (which is free and open to the public), Star Plunge and Hellie’s TePee Pools. Hot Springs State Park is also home to remarkable rainbow terraces, the state’s bison herd and a swinging bridge that provides beautiful views of the park. Nestled in Southwest Wyoming, Saratoga has an established hot springs resort, as well as a free public soaking pool. Combining lodging, dining and natural hot springs, Saratoga Hot Springs Resort offers travelers a peaceful retreat. Meanwhile, in the northwest corner of Wyoming, just south of Jackson, Granite Hot Springs and Astoria Hot Springs offer serenity in the heart of nature. In the winter months, Granite Hot Springs is only accessible by snowmobile, dog sled, skiing or fat biking.
