Enjoy a Picnic in the Park

Hot Springs National Park recognizes that there's nothing better than enjoying a family picnic under the awning of the trees with a gentle breeze blowing the leaves.

We have picnic tables located throughout the Park at the following locations:

  • On the South end of the Grand Promenade, located off of Reserve St.
  • At the Mountain Tower off Hot Springs Mountain Drive
  • At the West Mountain Pavillion on West Mountain Drive
  • The Gulpha Gorge Campground Day Use Area

You may also bring a blanket and have a picnic at Arlington Lawn.

Please note that picnicking is not allowed in the following areas:

  • On the lawns of the historic buildings on Bathhouse Row
  • At the park’s official entrance, between the Maurice and Fordyce Bathhouses
  • On the grounds around the Park Administration Building
