we stayed here a month. We have visited here off and on over the last 19 years and were so disappointed to see its present condition. Made reservations, but were told they didn't have them--this story was told to many of the visitors I talked to over the month. Usually the CG is nearly full all the time with folks staying a month or the summer to enjoy the water.

About cried when we saw the condition of our site. Dried out foxtails and tall weeds. Anyone bringing a pet here should google "foxtailes can kill your dog" to see what to do to protect your pet. Not much maintainace going on here. They owners had fired the grounds keeper. Lawn is only water at the entrance and in front of the owners' house which they spend all their time remodeling. The pool was only cleaned twice in the month we were there, They have no printed CG rules and people let dogs and kids wander everywhere. The CG was never full. even over 7/4. Don't think we'll ever come back. We camped at Fountain of Youth RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Old and tired. At check in, our host endlessly apologized for the state of the grounds. Why draw attention to something that is obvious? Sites are close. Grounds are about as attractive as an ATV recreation track. Glad we were not here in the rain.

OK, that stated, if you want to visit the marvelous funk of Thermopolis, this is your place. We did the state park, home of the world's largest hot spring, and it was good, but this RV park has its own hot spring and pools. The pools are mineral laden and seem unclean but 1.3 million gallons of spring water flow through them each day. The water is hot and good. I often get a sketchy back from the agonies of setting up camp. 20 minutes in their pools and I was ready for Chubby Checker and the Twist.

Net net...stay here and enjoy, for one or two nights. We camped at Fountain of Youth RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Dinner out is not much of an option. Local grocer pretty decent. We grilled great steaks from them. Expect good beef throughout Wyoming.

The main reason to come here is for the onsite thermal pools. The thermal pools were relaxing and historically interesting. As long as the pools are your focus you might be satisfied. The RV park itself is not in good repair. Three of the four dryers had out of order signs on them. The picnic tables are in bad shape. The landscaping consists of weeds and gravel. The WiFi was fairly stable. We camped at Fountain of Youth RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Owner was friendly, led us to our site and helped us park. This park is not big rig friendly. Seems to be a post, pole or tree on all the corners of every site. Sites are gravel and narrow but level. Site was not long enough for my 38' rig plus tow vehicle. No full-timers that I could see but tent campers are allowed. Sewer is at back of site, water pressure is strong, be careful! Interior roads are dirt and narrow.

Big plus is the onsite hot spring with 3 large pools to swim in.

There is a fairly busy train track, 50 yards from the back of the park, but as the train runs thru town, I think the other parks will have the same issue.

Owner advertises 12PM checkout but asked me (and 3 others campers that I asked) to be out by 9AM. We camped at Fountain of Youth RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We are huge fans of all types of hot springs and pools, and that gives a big boost to this place. They have two huge outdoor pools, which we had to ourselves. This is definitely an older park that could use a lot of talc. The sites are very close together and the drives are also tight, so bigger outfits might have trouble maneuvering in here. Roads and sites are old gravel with grass and trees between. Each had a picnic table. The bathrooms were ancient and could definitely have been cleaner. The showers are pay and are little cell rooms that were not very appealing. The owner was very friendly. No cell service, but the wifi was speller with no one else in the park. Despite the negatives, I would do an overnight here again just to soak in the pools! We camped at Fountain of Youth RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

We were on our way home from Yellowstone and needed an overnight stop and found this campground. We were not sure what to expect due to the reviews we read online (not very good), but when we called another campground in the area, which was full, they informed us that the campgrounds had new owners and that the old reviews may not be totally accurate. We were happy we decided to stay there, our site was a nice size (we had a pull thru with full hookups), the WiFi worked well and the mineral hot springs pool was a wonderful experience (though you do have to get use to the smell of sulfurous - common in mineral hot springs). The owners were very nice and are working on fixing areas in the campground, but everything takes time and they have only owned it since March. It was a great experience and would recommend staying there. We camped at Fountain of Youth RV Park in a Motorhome.

New owners rude! Trash everywhere, bathrooms smelled like they haven't, been cleaned in a week, showers slick with mold and mildew, pool slimey, did I mention new owners are rude?!?, sites too close and not maintained between guest visits, new owners threatened to physically harm us for breaking unposted rules ( smoking in pool area), left after 2 hrs, had to threaten to call the police for assistance to get $$ back. Never again!! We camped at Fountain of Youth RV Park in a Tent.

From the road, this looks like a pretty little place, grass, level concrete pads, so we momentarily forgot that beauty is only skin deep. When we mentioned that the RV Park reviews for the place were a bit dodgy, the lounging host said “Well, you can’t always believe them online reviews.” You can believe these. I am not sure that the electric is what caused my microwave to suddenly go crazy, but it did. After looking at the setup, I did not hook up to the water or sewer, and did not try the WiFi…and there was no cell phone reception. My spouse had planned to try the thermal pool here, but after looking at the restrooms, and at the stuff floating (some possibly swimming) in the pool, she decided against it. She went for a shower, opened the first one to find it full of running bugs, the second to find what appeared to be a used syringe; used the third reluctantly (the fourth had an abandoned scrunchy lying on the bench). The mens restroom had one urinal, one toilet stall, and three sinks. You won’t have to wait to get into the bathroom though, the latch hardware has been removed. There were spider webs on the urinal and on the air freshener, which didn’t. There was an empty soap dispenser, and no paper towel or hand drier. The person responsible for mopping the center of the floor did not extend that effort to the corners. We went through a container of anti-bacterial hand wipes in one night. There is some highway noise, although that is not too bad since you are below the highway, adjacent to the railroad tracks. Have I mentioned the trains? The tracks run just behind this small park. Trains roaring past make the ground shake…literally shake. The owner of this place apparently lives in what looks like a nice, clean, modern house above the premises; it is unfortunate the same effort has not been extended to the campground facilities. We stayed one night in a popup trailer. I’d say a fair one-night price might lie somewhere between zero and fourteen dollars, but we paid $38 for the privilege. In the future, we will stay someplace at least an hour’s drive away from Thermopolis. I gave it a 3 because I've seen one worse campground, and presumably there could be one worse than that out there. We camped at Fountain of Youth RV Park in a Tent Trailer.

This place is pretty junky. Spaces are extremely tight and they were experiencing sewer problems when we were there so you could smell open sewer most of the time. Park is very unkempt and one could easily tell that very little money is spent on upkeep. We would not return here unless it was a last resort.

FOY RV Park. Nice people, fairly relaxed environment, beautiful water. Probably better in your own self-sufficient rigs as showers were not felt as sanitary; but there is a peace that comes with this spring water that cannot be explained. You must stay at least a week to leave understanding what is said. This deep peace seems to be a very we'll kept secret of this mysterious, beautiful area of the world. that is about all I can say because the waters stoled the show. I bottled some up at the source right where it comes out of the ground & we drink it & use it in our hair & on our skin in our creams. Floated around resting for hours on a drooping swim Matt for fun. We camped at Fountain of Youth RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Reason for the low number is the unlevel sites, had to use a board under one side just to start leveling. It was a little tight but I had no problem with my 40 foot 5th wheel, just went slow. The Wi-Fi and staff were excellent. Given what we had and the active train track within 50 feet, I thought the price was a little high. Yes, there is a hot spring pool to use but site cost was still too high. I would still recommend the park and would stay here again. We camped at Fountain of Youth RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Yup, this park has seen its best days long ago. Appliances in restrooms and showers are old and jittery, there is neither paper towels nor a hand dryer in the restroom. Upon check-in there is no explanation where restrooms/showers, laundry etc. are or if there is WiFi and if you need a password to use it - you have to ask for this. Here and there is a little bit of trash around and the sites are not well maintained. You need quarters for the showers. I'm definitely not the spoiled kind and since there weren't any other real problems I'd be willing to put up with all these shortcomings if they didn't charge 34 USD per night. Won't stay here again.

This is not only an RV park, it's an experience! Due to other reviews, we were cautious, so unhooked in town, and drove the 2 miles here to look it over, and decided to come in for two nights. The quirky clerk was polite, but reserved, til I asked his name, then he warmed right up. A friendly woman escorted us to our site. The sites accommodate all sizes, with a few saved for big rigs. Yes, the place is cosmetically challenged, but we had: full hookups, good Wi-Fi, a small patio with grill, and the largest mineral pool I've ever seen. It's beautiful and natural and included in the fee. (As another reviewer mentioned, no long list of rules!) Where else can you float at leisure in therapeutic warm water, while viewing gorgeous Wind River Valley terrain, plus see a train go by?! The trains do not blast their horns, by the way. The laundry room was fine ($1.25 to wash), and we met very friendly and interesting folks from all over, including locals, who come here for the water. We enjoyed Thermopolis: the state park, the dinosaur museum, a rodeo, bison in the pasture, cute shops. Kirby which is 12 miles away, has Wyoming Whiskey distillery with tours, and Butch's Burgers. We would return here. We camped at Fountain of Youth RV Park in a Motorhome.

Wow, this park is really run down. Weeds, junk and trash throughout. The pictures of how this place used to look made me sad because it is now run down and ratty. I enjoyed the hot springs pool, but other than I can't say much good about the place. Showers and restrooms were so bad we did not use them. I would not stay here again.

The park was nice and quiet, the spots a little tight to get in to with a large fifth wheel, but the staff was excellent and helpful. Warning that the GPS directions from Thermopolis are not quite as clear as they could be, do NOT try to go through the Hot Springs Park, the underpass for the railroad is 12 foot and we lost an AC unit by misjudging it. Use the highway to the left and go around the park and it is easy to find: at least now we know! The pools are warm and relaxing, interesting to see the natural hot springs in the park!
