Gulpha Gorge – Area Recreation

Of course the big attraction at Hot Springs National Park are those delightful soothing thermal waters.  The hot springs have been used by native Americans, settlers and modern day folk for hundreds of years. Today, you can take a dip at the Buckstaff Bathouse (first-come, first-serve), or have one of those fancier modes spa experiences at the Quapaw Baths & Spa (reservations required). At the Park you can also tour some of the historic sites and bathhouses, picnic, hike and bike.

Keep in mind that Hot Springs National Park is in an urban area, surrounding the north end of the city of Hot Springs. The hot springs only emerge in the Bathhouse Row area downtown because the town grew around the hot springs.

  1. Kay Hardin says:

    A favorite. Beautiful wooded setting on a creek. Full hookups. No reservations. Not a bad site to be had. Minutes from Hot Springs.

  2. Mark Brugner says:

    Do you have a senior rate for staying at your compground?

    • Hi Mark,
      Gulpha Gorge should have a senior rate, but you should probably call the campground directly to confirm at:(501) 620-6715.
      FYI – all sites are first-come, first-serve.

    • They do. Currently (Oct. 2020) payment is done through an automated kiosk that accepts only debit/credit cards. It will ask you if you are eligible for the senior rate, which includes anyone holding the Senior/Access/Lifetime passes, and you can make that selection. With the 50% discount, sites are $15/night.

  3. Becky Cummings says:

    To get a senior discount you must have the national park senior access card.

  4. Mr David L Smith says:

    Starting Feb. 1st 2022 the Gulpha Gorge Campground is taking camping reservation at, reservation.gov. This is a beautiful campground, very peaceful, sometimes the road noise is a bit loud but otherwise one of our favorites.
