Hot Springs National Park

No matter what time of year it is, there is always a good excuse to indulge in the happiness that is found in a hot bath. Everyone deserves a chance to regroup and relax from time to time. There is no better way to get this accomplished than loading up your Oklahoma motorhome and heading east for about five and a half hours to Hot Springs National Park in Arkansas. Here we’ll explain why this might be the best idea that has come to you so far this year!

Hot Springs, ARHistory

Talk about popularity, this location has been used for thousands of years beginning with Native Americans. With naturally warm waters, Hot Springs has an obvious appeal. The origin of this phenomenon started long before people began to inhabit the earth. It all started with a fault line about a mile down that exposed the above water to some extreme temperatures.

Baths

If the stresses of life are weighing down upon you, bringing your RV out to Hot Springs might be more than just a getaway. Spending some time in the bathhouses of the town could really improve your body! Time and time again, visitors get to experience the healing hand of water therapy by taking part in a traditional bath. The treatment is one you’ll find in European spas where a bath can be both for laying or sitting – whatever is most comfortable for you. Not heard of sitting baths? These are mostly beneficial for lower back pain. While in the bath, hot packs provide heath therapy to any areas of pain. A quick cool shower follows the 100° soak. Want to top off a perfect evening? Opt for a Swedish massage that is full body right as you get out of the baths. There really is no way to feel more relaxed.
