Get back to nature in a carefree atmosphere that lies within the boundaries of a positive energy vortex generated from the flow of the local springs located on and off of the property and from the ancestral energies of the indigenous people that once pilgrimaged to this area for centuries, seeking the healing qualities of the springs, both physically and spiritually. You can relax & recharge with us here in the desert as nature envelopes you and gives you permission to release yourself from the burdens currently placed on you and forget all your worries for a brief moment. Staying on this rural 160 acre slice of nature allows one to escape the sounds and stresses of the city and become one with nature. Choose from 10 different campsite areas that are loosely situated in the far corner of the property, bordering 1000's of acres of natural undeveloped BLM and USFS land. The property's rural location provides abundant opportunities to view unique and spectacular wildlife right from your campsite or on one of the numerous hiking and OHV trails in the area.
The Juniper Flats campsites are located within the Deep Creek Hot Springs Campground property, but are located in a separate secluded area of the property with a limited amount of campsites and upgraded amenities. The Juniper Flats campsites have instant hot water showers compared to the general camping area's solar showers, and there are 2 flushing toilets and a dry composting pit toilet all within proximity. The number of campsites in the Juniper Flats area is limited to 6 to help provide a more rural and private camping experience compared to the general camping area by the original trailhead and kiosk. There is an alternate hot springs trailhead located near the Juniper Flats campsites, which quickly meets up with the main trail after 1/3 mile, and is a bit less steep.
Located in the mountains of the Mojave Desert, this property is only 1.75 miles from the Deep Creek Hot Springs, with the trailhead located right on site! This property is surrounded by 1000's of acres of pristine undeveloped land managed by the BLM & USFS, creating fantastic views of the natural desert. With 160 acres, there are always lots of sites available in the general camping area, and each site has plenty of space to spread out. Bring your tent and come camp out under the stars, or make it easy on yourself & rent one of our furnished glamping tents. Cots are also available for rent, which make a perfect addition for night sky watching on those clear starry nights or during those spectacular meteor showers!

Great place for a weekend away
Friendly staff, great atmosphere. We had a fantastic stay here. Also, the owner has a dope-ass Unimog. I highly recommend staying here.
I and my girlfriend enjoyed our time camping there. The campsite is clean. The 1 hour hike was rewarding. The stars looked amazing. And finally our host led us to our spot and then was our of our hair for the rest of the trip. Would definitely recommend and do it again.
Crazy remote location. The 6 mile dirt road is longer/bumpier than you think but we loved being away from it all. The temp was almost 100 degrees and there is no shade - come prepared. We also did the hike to the hot springs which was magical, almost died on the way back. We appreciated the showers! All round - great camp, just be prepared.
Quite the adventure
Oh man. This was an interesting experience for us.
Upon arrival we met Jessica, super nice. She definitely tried to deter us from the hike down to the hot springs and after doing the hike yesterday, we can see why! She told us reduced happen weekly and we witnessed one in our first night. We didn’t realize the hot springs were such a party spot. So we can see why people get lost.
With my GPS watch, the trip to the springs and back was at minimum 5 miles round trip. So be prepared!! I’m 7 months pregnant and I was able to do it but it was not easy! Bring plenty of water.
The campsite we got was probably the best one. I really liked how they provided a padded turf section at each site and tables. There was a fire pit, but fires are currently not allowed. The trees provided us some shade but holy cow it was hot!! I never experienced a pit toilet before, but for what it was, it was fairly clean. And it was nice they provided showers. They are at the base of a big hill so you get dirty walking back to your camp site. After our hike yesterday, there was a drunk guy basically asleep in the shower. So it made us wonder if the owners are aware of who is on their property.
It was quite the adventure, but I’m not sure we will be back to this location.
A bit hard to find but once we got there it was wonderful. Super nice people, fast easy checkin, lots of great sites to choose from. The hot springs were fantastic. We lucked out with the weather too, as it was cloudy enough to keep the temperature very nice for the long hike to and from the springs.
Great trip with my kids and uncle!
Some confusion when I got there, but a lady who worked there got on an ATV and led me personally to all the possible sites and let me choose. She also informed us about a spa filled with cold water (which my kids loved), gave us info about the local wildlife, a little bit of history about the area, and was extremely helpful and friendly. Five stars for her alone! Loved our location despite nearby glampers getting a little loud at night, really appreciated the photos of landmarks in the directions on the website, and a wonderful experience overall!
Much needed time with nature
We had a wonderful time. There was plenty of space and even though the temperature creeped above 100 degrees, there was a nice breeze that helped cool us off. We met George and Matt on arrival and they were very helpful. The hike to deep creek hot springs was challenging at times but definitely worth it. We brought a pop up canopy for extra shade and it was definitely needed. The nights did cool off so sleeping was comfortable also. We definitely recommend this place for camping!
Campsite and location were fantastic and we would def come back with a group of friends. Privacy and great amenities. The hike to the creek is not an easy hike, be prepared for no shade, loose gravel, and at least
1 hour down from parking lot kiosk and 1.5 back up the mountain to parking. It is not a stroll or a moderate level hike for the average hiker..... The creek WAS AMAZINGLY beautiful and should be enjoyed and respected. Its a special place.
Very loud and disrespectful crowds
Overall this was a cool, but poorly run campsite that draws a disrespectful, party crowd. Loud music from the camp next door was blasting until 11pm and started up again at 7am. ATVs and trucks revving all night. We paid for firewood and was told it would be delivered to our site, but didn’t come. Disrespectful campers and hikers littering, blasting music, and camping at the hot springs against the rules. There are showers, picnic tables, and fire pits which are great, and a trailhead to the springs, but just feels a little too free for all here. Apparently the campsite near door, the original ranch, has a much more peaceful, respectful vibe for a lower rate, which could be worth checking out. Just overall was not the peaceful weekend in nature I had imagined.
