Thermopolis has a number of motels and campgrounds with a little age on them, so if you're arriving in the busy summer season you should have a reservation, or risk landing in a room with the amenities of a closet. Recently, chain affiliates have taken a new interest in lodgings here, so the choices are growing.


The Fountain of Youth RV Park (tel. 307/864-3265; has tent and RV sites available year-round and is located 1 1/2 miles north of town by the river on U.S. 20. The campground features a large hot mineral spring pool, barbecue grills, showers, laundry room, dump station, and camp store. RV sites cost $33 to $35 for two people (tent sites are $30 for two). When things are busy in the summer, you may find yourself overhearing the unmuffled conversation of the Harley riders parked in the next slot. Open April through October, the Eagle RV Park (tel. 888/865-5707 or 307/864-5262; offers RV sites for $31, tent sites for $20, and log cabins for $40 to $70 -- and peace and quiet.
