Plan Your Visit
Hot Springs National Park is in an urban area, surrounding the north end of the city of Hot Springs. Be aware that many businesses in the area say they are in "Hot Springs National Park" when they actually are not; the city's post office name is Hot Springs National Park.
The hot springs only emerge in the Bathhouse Row area downtown because the town grew around the hot springs.

If you have an emergency while visiting the park, please call our Law Enforcement Dispatch at 501-620-6739.
