Located just north of Thermopolis, the Fountain of Youth RV Park boasts the largest mineral pool in Wyoming, and the third largest in the world. The pool is fed by the Sacajawea Well, named for the Indian squaw who led Lewis and Clark to the Pacific. At an elevation of 3,947 feet, our bone warming 100 degree pool will make you forget your worries. The well was drilled in 1918 by C.F. Cross in search of oil. Instead of oil, hot mineral water was struck. The pressure was so great that it destroyed the derrick when it came in. Currently, the well flows at a rate of 1.3 million gallons of 128 degree water each 24 hours.

Eventually the water formed the colorful travertine formation you now see. The pool measures 235 feet by 72 feet and holds 84,600 cubic feet of water. With 1.3 gallons flowing from the Sacajawea every 24 hours, the water in the pool is exchanged every 11 hours. The hot mineral water have been known to help many physical disorders, are wonderfully relaxing, and they serve to greatly ease tension and occupational fatigue. Many have found that, though not actually being sick, the benefits from the pool make such a big difference in the way they feel, that they extend their one day getaway into a hot water week.

The Fountain of Youth hosts between 75-100 Baptisms each year from local churches and conventions and is the summer home of many "snow birds". The "liars" tree, the oldest Chinese Elm in Wyoming is a great place to enjoy swapping stories with your new-found friends. But be careful, the tree has ears.
