How Hot Are the Hot Springs In Arkansas and How Were They Formed?

The Hot Springs in Arkansas are really hot, about 147° Fahrenheit.

The world famous Hot Springs in the Ouachita Mountains are made up of 47 separate springs that put out about 1 million gallons (3.8 million 1) of steaming water a day.

Hot Springs is now a national park, but back in the early 1800s people began coming to Hot Springs to “take the waters” for health reasons.

Springs are places in the earth where water flows to the surface from underneath the earth.

The water in hot or warm springs is heated as it travels past hot rocks deep in our planet.

Other famous Arkansas springs are Mammoth Spring, which is one of the largest in the United States, and Eureka Springs, both in the Ozarks.
