Hot Springs Trailhead Camping
The campground is huge and there is plenty of space to spread out as it is a 6 mile off road drive to the entrance of the ranch. We stayed in the Oasis and it had a permanent structure being built which will be lovely once completed. A few things to note, it is on a active cattle ranch so we had herds of cows and bulls wandering through our site frequently which resulted in us sleeping in the car for safety and peace of mind. Additionally, the pool at the campsite was more of a watering hole and there were many wasps and yellow jackets using it as a watering source throughout the entirety of our visit. The owners of the campsite were very lovely and we bought firewood from them both nights we were there. This place has wonderful potential for a great camping trip just be cautious of the things listed above. Mostly the bulls.

Off-Grid Hot Springs Glamping Tent
The property was beautiful, and we stayed during the 100-115 degree heat wave. We adventured out to Apple Valley and ate at the Rusty Bull, and then got back to the tent just in time for the AC to turn on at 8pm. The power did cut out around midnight- but it was cool enough that we didn’t wake up sweating. Took on the Deep Creek/Hotspring hike around 7am and took us took about an hour to get down to the water. Really enjoyed the water, a forewarning there are some nude swimmers, but everyone was friendly and respectful of each others space. The hike back was about hour and half, and was steep but doable. We brought a gallon of water each and drank all of it. The showers back at the glamping spot were really refreshing and definitely needed after the hike. Really lovely people at check in, helped with any questions we had and even offered to extent the power for 7 dollars an hour.

Private Hot Spring Oasis Cave Cabin
Brent was so welcoming when we arrived (easy with the really detailed directions on how to get there). Our whole party of 10 had no problem finding the camp site. The site itself was absolutely stunning. The attention to detail was awesome. We loved the hot spring pool along with a cooler pool for during the day. The decks were awesome additions that we got to lounge on during dinner and breakfast. Would absolutely return for another trip!

Off-Grid Hot Spring Glamping Tent
Website is mu
Place was not as described on website. Nearest water was about an hour hike away, electric service only available 8pm to midnight, no store or office, just a couple of run down trailers at the entrance. Worse part was we paid $7 an hour extra for electric and they shut it off anyways.

Hot Springs Trailhead Camping
Loved the fire pit and patch of grass at each campsite on the trail head side. Purchasing firewood was easy.

Off The Grid Furnished Tent
AC was not on for the duration
I could be wrong about this, but I did not read anything in the notes and the amenities that the AC would be turned off after midnight. The gentleman named Brent told me that the power was supposed to be off by midnight, and he kept it on till 3:30 AM and then after my party, and I realized it was turned off and shortly later meeting up with Brent I had let him known that the AC was off to which his reply was, it was supposed to be off by midnight, but left it on until about 5:30 in the morning, not knowing, and being aware of the AC being turned off my group, and I were very disappointed in the fact that we were not aware that the AC was not for the whole duration of the time that we rented it out for. Brent had told me that it is expensive to keep the generators on to keep the AC running to which I replied. I thought that is what we are paying for to his reply was well, I will turn it back on for you guys, not knowing that he set a timer to have it shut off at a certain time and that time ended up being around 5:30 AM, and because the weather was so hot out, my guests and I were not able to sleep for longer than three hours, because the tent had gotten so heated up and stuffy that it was unbearable to keep resting through and so we packed up our things and left before the checkout time because it was getting so hot that we couldn’t even stay in the tent any longer. It was cooler outside than it was inside the tent. We thought that this was Brent’s way of getting rid of gues
