Hot Springs Information

Hot Springs National Park, a popular vacationing spot, contains 40 hot springs where visitors can use soothing waters to heal and relax.

Originally established by Congress as Hot Springs Reservation in 1832 and later becoming a national park in 1921, Hot Springs National Park represents the oldest protected area in the National Park System. The park surrounds the north end of the city of Hot Springs, Arkansas, and includes over 40 hot springs which flow from the western slope of Hot Springs Mountain. In addition to the hot springs, the park encompasses a wilderness area with over 20 miles of trails and a campground.

For over 200 years, people have been coming to this area ' nicknamed 'The American Spa' - to enjoy the hot springs, and several hot spring bath houses remain open today. Visitors can also tour the historic Bathhouse Row, a National Historic Landmark District, which preserves one of the best collections of bathhouses in the United States, many done in Gilded Age architecture.
