    Park at the Deep Creek Hot Springs Campground 1/4 mile past Bowen Ranch for the best experience. Secure parking right at the trail head in areas no longer accessible through the ranch property. New closer parking area & hot spring access trail in the works to be finished soon. Deep Creek Hot Springs Campground is a beautiful place with its own spring on the property being developed for public use. The owners of the new campground & parking area are very nice and helpful too, unlike the people at the ramshackle Bowen ranch next door who are well known for their inhospitality and aggressive behavior, especially if you don’t get off the property before dark when they close their gate.

    Bowen Ranch is closed and does not allow camping overnight. The Bowen Ranch property is fenced off before the trail head and no longer has access since the real owners of the property asserted their rights and withdrew permission for access as they develop their own parking area & campground on a much larger piece of property that was part of the original Bowen Ranch started in 1925. A private spring is located at this new parking & camping site as well.

    Loved this place the very first time I went… for the land and the hot springs experience, but very other time it has been too busy and more of a party place. I would only go back during the colder/slower seasons.

    I have visited Deep Creek Hot Springs several times. Love the options offered by the different pools. Nudity has been the norm every time I have been there. Make sure you stay on the trail when returning to your vehicle at the trailhead. It is very easy to get lost if you don’t. I thought I was smart by trying to take a short cut. I was not prepared for the two guys with a rifle that I encountered. They eventually took me to my car and released me after relieving me of my money.
