To visit the site, you must obtain a key from Hot Springs State Park headquarters at 538 Hwy. 20 North, the State Bath House or the Thermopolis-Hot Springs Chamber of Commerce. To get to the site take Hwy. 120 from Thermopolis toward Meeteetse for 21 miles. Turn left at the second Hamilton Dome turn-off (Cottonwood Creek Road) and drive west about five miles. Once you arrive at a crossroads, you will continue west on Cottonwood Creek Road until you reach the second of two cattle guards. Turn left immediately after the second cattle guard. Follow that road until you reach a fork in the road. Stay to the left and the road will lead to a locked gate. Use the key you obtained in Thermopolis to open the lock, continue on the road and down the hill until you reach the dirt parking area.
