High Desert Hot Spring Hideout

13 sites · RVs, Tents160 acres · Lake Arrowhead, CA
This property is the perfect place to escape the city and immerse yourself in nature. Nestled in the mountains of the high desert, we invite you to come stay in a peaceful serene setting, where beautiful natural desert scenery and mountain views surround you. The 40 minute hike to the Deep Creek Hot Springs is well worth the effort, and there's so much more natural beauty to see as you explore miles of hiking and OHV trails nearby and right on the property. Weather can be extreme at times, with Winter temps ranging from 20*F to 40* F, and Summer temps peaking at 112F. The cold creek water in the Deep Creek canyon flows all year around, and the 6 creek-side hot spring pools are always full and consistently hot all year around, ranging in temperatures between 90F-108F. The hike to the Deep Creek Hot Springs is fairly steep and can be difficult for some people, especially in warm weather. In order to be prepared with the correct gear to make this hike and know the USFS rules that apply to the area, please educate yourself before coming by visiting the USFS website page for the Deep Creek area and our webpage for the Deep Creek Hot Springs Campground for detailed driving directions to the official trailhead located right on our property. You won't get lost if you park on our property and hike from the trailhead, so make sure you go to the right address. Know before you go! Generally, reservations are not necessary to set up a tent site, but we have a more private area set aside for hipcamp reservations that has separate facilities from the general camping area. We do not recommend bringing children due to occasional nudity that may be seen in the area and the degree of difficulty for the hike. The hike to the hot springs is fairly difficult and everyone’s physical fitness needs to be considered when deciding to take pets, or have children, elderly people, or out-of-shape/over-weight people in your group.

Off the Grid Hot Springs Camping

12 sites · Lodging, RVs, Tents180 acres · Lake Arrowhead, CA
Located on a rural off the grid property near the Deep Creek Hot Springs, this 160 acre property is the perfect place to escape the city and immerse yourself in nature. Nestled in the mountains of the high desert, come camp and enjoy yourself in a peaceful setting where beautiful natural desert scenery and mountain views surround you. The natural high desert landscape of junipers, joshua trees, chaparral and sages, combined with the nearby San Bernardino mountains in the background, create an amazing 360* view from just about anywhere on our land. This private homestead property is located 6 miles off the pavement, just far enough to escape the sounds and lights of the city, and is surrounded by 1,000's of acres of undeveloped government managed lands. The natural rural setting creates a serene atmosphere on the property that allows one to easily relax and recharge. You can set up your own tent and campsite or rent one of our furnished glamping tents to stay in when you come to visit. Have a special event coming up or just want to celebrate? Check out our private hot spring pool sites and private cold spring pool sites we have available for up to 300 guests. There is plenty of activities nearby to keep yourself occupied, such as nature watching right on the property, or exploring numerous hiking and ohv trails just off the property. With the trailhead starting on the property, the Deep Creek Hot Springs is just a short hike away, and well worth the effort, with nearby fishing and gold panning along the creek as well. Deep Creek flows all year around, and the 6 creek-side hot spring pools are always full and consistently hot all year around, ranging in temperatures between 90F-108F. The hike to the Deep Creek Hot Springs is steep in places and can be fairly difficult for some people, especially in warm weather. In order to be prepared with the correct gear to make this hike and know the USFS rules that apply to the area, please educate yourself before coming by visiting the USFS website page for the Deep Creek area. Know before you go! *Although children are permitted to be on the property, we do not recommend bringing them due to occasional nudity that may be seen in the area and the degree of difficulty of the hike. The hike to the hot springs is fairly difficult and everyone’s physical fitness needs to be considered when deciding to take children, elderly people, or over-weight people.

Enjoy camping, hiking, bouldering, stargazing, relaxing in a spacious yet private, beautiful surrounding. Contact me for pricing for all-camp booking (limit 32 people), production, photo shoots. Sorry, no drones, no loud parties or music after 11pm - my neighbors get upset. Quiet time is 11pm at camp and you can hang out up the mountain at the big firepit as long as you want. Desert Daisy is 6 miles from Joshua Tree National Park, 4 miles from Hwy 62 shops and art galleries, JT Saloon, restaurants. Less than 2 miles to Joshua Tree Music Festival, Joshua Tree Lake and Campground, the Transmissions sculptures, Noah Purifoy's Museum. Mesa Market is 2 miles the other way and has firewood, ice, water, a taco truck, some of everything, and is open til 10pm. Sites inside the fenced area are Big 6, Site 2, Flower Power Platform 1 and Fencer. Mountain Majesty 7, Lazy 8 and Snowkiss Chalet are outside the fenced area and can best accommodate small RVs and larger camper vans. Windbreaks are at all sites except Fencer and Lazy 8. Parking, firepits, tables and seating, are at each site, and most have a BBQ grill too. The Community Area - shared by all campers - has shade, a windbreak, big tables with seating for 16, 2 bbq grills with coals and basic cooking supplies in the file drawers, a 2-burner propane camp stove, solar string lights, and more. Big 6 is closest to the Community Area; Fencer is farthest. Enjoy a bouldering hike to the top of the mountain behind MM7 and Lazy 8, where you'll find a huge firepit with big rocks to sit on, and incredible views. For entire Desert Daisy booking, you get the whole place minus my owners cabin, private deck and storage RV. You'll have the Community Area, and i can offer a big shade umbrella, a big 2-burner stove with 25 gallon propane tank, pots, pans, extra seating, a hammock with metal frame, games, even a huge 16x16ft glamping tent that fits on Big 6 - at extra cost. Contact me directly to discuss. The Smoking Area is at the far tip of the land inside the fence, by the Fencer site and offers casual seating, a coffee table, incredible views and a bucket for your butts. When Fencer is booked, those hipcampers have the area for their own use. Amenities include a flush toilet, porta potty, big sink with dish liquid and scrubbers, hand wash station near both toilets, water tower with hose attached to refill the dishwashing water canister or to wash your hands, a solar shower stocked with soap, shampoo, body wash. Bring your own drinking water, lights for night, warm clothes. Firewood is available for purchase from my neighbor the other side of the mountain - ask me for his address. Big 6 is a huge 20'x20' raised platform, and is also great for yoga sessions, retreats, acoustic guitar groups, chat sessions, etc. Flower Power Platform 1 has a 10'x10' platform and a big 16'x16' sandy area next to it for more tents, parking, canopy, etc. Fencer is at the far tip of my property and is a narrow 3-tent groundcamp great for car camping or tent plus car. Site 2 has a 10'x12' tent platform, parking for 2 cars or 1 car and a small tent. Snowkiss Chalet is a tiny, Disneyland food kiosk turned into an off-grid, solar-powered glamping pod with a big double-pane picture window, porch with windbreak and seating, screen door, outdoor kitchen, big picnic table, solar shower bag, parking and more tent space. Mountain Majesty 7 is behind the shipping container and is a private groupcamp site with a windbreak, 2 big picnic tables with holes in them for your own umbrella, 3 firepits, plenty of parking, and has Caboose- a unique shipping container deck and lounge area. The native plants, flowers, wildlife and kangaroo mice at night add to the charm, and there are no mosquitos! The fallen branches of the creosote bushes make perfect kindling for your firepit. Be sure to look under your vehicle so you don't drive over any local wildlife enjoying the shade. IMPORTANT: Follow my directions pin which I send the morning of your arrival, or you may end up on the other side of the mountain. Again, bring lights and drinking water and warmth for chilly desert nights. All sites are clean, well-maintained, have incredible views and star gazing and a feeling of serenity as you enjoy the beauty of nature. It is a wonderful space. Please contact me, your Host Judy, for inquiries for production, photo shoots or all-sites booking as we want to ensure that all hipcampers have a pleasant experience.
