DescriptionA treaty between the Shoshone and Arapaho nations and the United States specified that the waters of the hot mineral springs at Thermopolis would be available to everyone free of charge. The agreement continues to be honored at the State Bath House in Hot Springs State Park. Petroglyphs, 30 miles northwest of Thermopolis and about 8 miles off SR 120, are etched on a south-facing cliff at Legend Rock State Petroglyph Site.
Thermopolis is a favorite destination for hunters in search of pronghorn antelopes, game birds, elk and deer. South of Thermopolis on US 20 is Boysen Reservoir, with developed recreational facilities at Boysen State Park.
Thermopolis provides access to two scenic highways—US 20 along Wind River Canyon and SR 120 traveling north to Cody.
