We found the Fountain of Youth RV Park very relaxing. Yes, it does need some work however, the owners are very pleasant and are trying hard to bring it up to a better standard. They’ve only owned it a year and there’s a lot of...More
Great place to stop with the family. Has new owners that are working hard to bring it back to its glory. Super friendly and helpful folks. Hot pools are great, and close to town as well. close to train tracks, but the trains roll through...More
This little gem of a campground is the place to be during the winter months. Both of my children have learned to swim there and the adults enjoy soaking for hours on end. The NEW and IMPROVED owners are very friendly and they have done...More
My sons and I were traveling cross country with our Ford Ranger and a tag-a-long canned ham trailer that we had rebuilt. Jay was looking through a travel guide and saw there were hot springs in Thermopolis. We headed north off route 20 and came...More
We stayed 2 nights in Thermopolis at this RV park and wished I had only paid for 1 in advance. It is an extremely run down and OLD RV park in need of a lot of repairs. I read a few negative reviews that stated...More

When I went several years ago the price for my very small camper and 3 adults was $40. We all embraced the fact that this place is a natural hot spring environment therefore there will be an odor, not always. The facilities are dated but the surrounding hills, the ride in from route 20, the staff, the Camp shows on the stage at night, the other campers all added to an experience that screams of 1950’s and for that I very much enjoyed this place. My expectations are usually low since I’m camping of course. This is a place where you can shed pretensions and you have to do some things yourself. Overall, when you consider how well the pools have been arranged, the constant flow of the pools to keep them fresh and the safety of the pools this is a pretty good deal. I’ve been to hot springs that were in their natural state and there was jeopardy of getting in too deep and hurting yourself.
I highly recommend Fountain of Youth because of it’s corniness above all and it is just another of the many adventures on your vacation that will be with you the rest of your life, a good story to tell. As many of you already know, many things you experience while camping are much better when the season is over and you’re talking about it over Thanksgiving dinner. Go off the beaten path and savor the slow pace of getting to and from Fountain of Youth and then continue on your trip knowing you have stepped back in time.
Happy trails campers,
