Hot Springs State Park has been named to Wide Open Spaces picks for the top 25 best state parks in the U.S.

According to their website at, state parks don't get quite as much love as national parks, but there are still some absolute gems out there if you do a little research.

They have this to say about HSSP, "When it comes to thermal features, Yellowstone National Park is king in the U.S. and Wyoming. But there's another cool and lesser-known thermal area in Hot Springs State Park in Thermopolis. This park, Wyoming's first, is unique in that it offers a mineral bath house, petroglyphs and even a small bison herd. There's something for just about everyone to see at Hot Springs."

HSSP is the only state park in Wyoming to make the list.
