Very short drive off of Interstate 40, a beautiful spot in the desert. Free to the public, but small fee to scuba dive. You will definitely need to check out the visitor center. During the summer they have small outdoor concerts on the stage. Fishing...More

This amazing little artesian spring is right in town and easy to access. We were pleasantly surprised by how few restrictions there are...the risks are clearly stated, but jumping off the low cliff is allowed and an access point is provided. Since its cool weather,...More
