Getting to Hot Springs National Park

Driving to Hot Springs

The park is located in the historic district of the city of Hot Springs, Arkansas. Busy city streets mix with historic bathhouses and the hot springs. AR-7 passes through the heart of the area. It can be reached directly off of I-30 from the south, or via US-70 west from Benton or US-270 west from Malvern. The roads in the area can be confusing, so a detailed map is useful.

If you’d like to plot directions from your location use the interactive map below. The marker shows the location of the Fordyce Bathhouse, which serves as the visitor center for Hot Springs National Park.
