“Beautiful area but my dog almost died. ”

Reviewed Jun 28, 2018

Overall Rating

We stayed here May 16-18. I don’t usually write reviews but I felt compelled to in this case. I definitely don’t want to warn everyone off of this beautiful area. The area is very remote (which is normally something I like) and the dirt road out there is very, very washboard. It’s fine for smaller vehicles, but we have a 29 ft motorhom... more

“Beautiful stars!”

Reviewed Sep 27, 2017

Overall Rating

We stayed here for one night in mid sept. It's a great free site off highway 50, there is lots of space and room for people to camp and spread out. The hot springs are nice, not exactly "natural" because they are rigged up with tubes and tubs, and some were kind of gross with scum on top, cigarette butts and beer bottles floating in th... more

“Boondocker's Bathtub”

Reviewed Sep 17, 2017

Overall Rating

We liked this place a lot at first, by the end of the weekend, we had seen two separate groups of people use these hot springs as a public bathtub. Hair washing, leg shaving. There wasn't enough turnover of the water to remove the soapy film so we didn't use it after the first two days...No one else seemed phased by this so use at your... more

“Abundant views and silence”

Reviewed May 25, 2017

Overall Rating

This place is way off the highway but with that you get views and silence. We are off roaders and the area has lots to explore. We enjoyed the hot springs and camped a ways aways so we could see if it was occupied or not. There are three good hot springs here and during the week we had one of them to ourselves. We felt very safe and ... more

“Nice Hot Spring with plenty of camping”

Reviewed May 17, 2016

Overall Rating

I enjoyed this spot quite a bit. There are some good hot springs, which are possible for sitting in if you find them not too hot at the time There is plenty of camping all over the roads, varying largely in size from the size of a single car to larger rigs. The backdrop of the Taiyobe mountains to the west is very beautiful, especially... more
