High Desert Hot Spring Hideout

· Lake Arrowhead, San Bernardino, California
160 acres hosted by Jessica E.
1 RV/tent site
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.Set up camp at this super secluded and unique site in the mountains of the Mojave Desert that has it's very own private cold spring pool! A refreshing pool made of natural stone sits beside a pergola shade structure and patio area, with outdoor seating, a fire pit, and a gas BBQ grill at the site. Private bathroom and shower nearby (shared with only 1 other campsite nearby). Sauna available nearby and 3 Ziplines to ride on property.

Thanks for a great weekend!
Awesome open space, so happy we went here. We were there 2 night and the other campers were respectful and nice. The heat and wind were intense but expected. There was a map at the check-in table to get to the hotsprings. It was really awesome, just beware that a ton of people there were nude lol. The hike back was no joke - plan to bring lots of water!!

Unique landscape!
It was worth the drive out. The trail to the hot springs is no joke but it’s beautiful maybe a little more crowded on a Monday than you’d expect. Car camping was spacious and my partner felt safe there was other cars around. Really beautiful property where you are in the desert and can see the mountain pine landscape nearby from the back of arrowhead. I’ll definitely be back once I rehydrate.

Great spot lots of places to camp and the hot springs are just amazing. Get ready to hike 1000 feet and make sure you don’t go off trail super easy to miss the trail entrance in between the canyons. About 40 min down the short way and a bit over hr to get back. Short way is steep and loose at the end and the long way more chill nice views.
