On our journey south, we stopped for a few days in Hot Springs. We originally wanted to stay at the Hot Springs National Park in the Gulpha Gorge Campground, but it is first come first served, and was full. We quickly found a new place to stay: Leisure Landing RV Park. A nice smaller campground that is setup great right on Lake Hamilton. Full hookup site with laundry facilities is only $32/day.
On Friday, we started the day by soaking in the hot spring pools at Quapaw Bathhouse. They have 4 pools at at different temperatures (95, 98, 102 and 105 degrees). We spent a little over an hour in the pools and then had lunch at the café. Very nice. the next time we come to Hot Springs, we want to try a more traditional bathhouse experience at Buckstaff Bathhouse; they have individual tubs vs pools.
After the bathhouse, we hiked the Peak Trail which leads to the Hot Springs Mountain Tower.
We finished our day having dinner at Superior Bathhouse Brewery. We each sampled a flight of 4 beers and enjoyed the food. Great menu of food and beer. Highly recommended to here if you are in town.
