Stopped by in the evening for the first time in 20 years and it is so worth it. The cool crisp summer nights are perfect for the hot pool. After soaking for a while you're guaranteed a relaxing nights sleep.

What a gem in this small Wyoming town. HOT, free, open 24/7. A fun experience but I would not recommend it for very small children. Just too hot for them. Also walk a few yards to the North Platte River and sit in the cove...More

I think it's great that these hot springs are free and always open. That's a very good thing. As other reviewers have said, it's very barebones. There's a very hot pool and a less hot one -- also fine. However, there's green slime on the...More

This was a great stop for our family. We wanted to try a hot pool, and this wasn't very far out of our way. It is free, but we left a donation. There are dressing rooms for men and women. (There are no doors on...More

Wide range of temperatures in the three pools. We were told that there was a recent renovation but we couldn't see it. Basically, it was dirty!

Yes. At the Hobo Pool, there is an ad for a local store or two that sell swimming suits. As well, you could likely find suits for purchase at a number of places in town, or at the motel/hot springs inn across the river... More
