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.

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.

Camping near Pomona guide

Overview

For nature excursions in the Los Angeles area, Pomona is an ideal basecamp. The city sits at the foot of the San Gabriel Mountains, just a 30-minute drive from the range and the surrounding Angeles National Forest’s crisp air, alpine hiking, waterfalls, and summit bagging. West of town are classic SoCal beaches with surf, sunsets, and soft brown sand, while those who head east will reach the Mojave Desert wonderland of Joshua Tree National Park. Come winter, you can even ski and cabin camp outside of Pomona at Big Bear Lake.

Where to go

Pomona Surrounds

Camping destinations around Pomona include the Frank G. Bonelli Regional Park in San Dimas, home to trails and lakes, and Chino Hills State Park, which features over 90 miles of hiking, biking, and equestrian trails through Southern California chaparral and sage scrub. RV campers can book spots at RV parks and RV resorts in Pomona and nearby San Bernardino, many with full hookups, free wifi, and other amenities.

San Gabriel Mountains

The San Gabriel Mountains are practically Pomona’s backyard with numerous hiking trailheads, including one to the summit of the 10,064-foot Mount Baldy. The surrounding Angeles National Forest also has many scenic driving routes.

Big Bear Lake

Further east of Pomona in the San Bernardino Mountains, Big Bear Lake is an awesome year-round escape from the city. At 6,752 feet of elevation, the lake is a prime spot to beat the summer heat or hit the ski resorts for a snowy winter getaway.

Pacific Beaches

West of Pomona, the Pacific coast beaches of Orange County, Los Angeles, and Malibu are world famous. For beach camping, check out Crystal Cove State Park and Leo Carrillo State Park, both home to beach campsites with picnic tables, showers, restrooms, and dump stations.

Joshua Tree

Joshua Tree National Park is about two hours east of Pomona. With incredible rock formations, otherworldly flora, and high definition stargazing, this desert playground is an incredibly popular destination from Pomona.

When to go

The Pomona area is good for camping year-round. Winter has the highest likelihood of cold weather and rain, but is an excellent time for desert camping. Spring visitors may find running waterfalls and blooming flowers. Summers can get hot with poor air quality in the valleys, but the beaches and mountains usually offer a cooler, cleaner reprieve.
