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.

Below you will find an interactive map showing the location of Fordyce Bathhouse, which serves as the visitor center for Hot Springs National Park. Following this are the official park maps provided by the National Park Service. You can view either the original PDF file or a simple JPEG image file (some of these files can be quite large). The map links will open in a new tab.
