We did not camp here overnight, but came here during the day to enjoy the springs. Be warned, the drive out to the springs is 12 miles of terrifying one-lane dirt and gravel road that snake along and over some steep mountains. I'm amazed we made it there and back with clean shorts. The springs are absolutely lovely and worth the drive. They are crystal clear and a perfect 103 degrees. A hut with an open roof for star gazing is built around the deepest pool. The campground looked nice, room enough for about 3 or 4 groups to enjoy. If you want middle-of-nowhere camping this is it.

The mountains in the background are what you drive over to reach the campground. 12 miles, a good portion of it on a narrow one-lane road.Bridge near the edge of the campground that leads to the hot springs.Inside the hot spring shack.Crystal clear water with a sandy bottom.
