We had a great time visiting the dry lake bed. The gal running the place did a great job. She is very helpful. We hope to come back soon.

Quiet and awesome views of the Alvord Playa. What more could you ask for in a hot springs soak? I soaked four days in a row and 3 of those days I had the place to myself.

We stopped here on our way through this area, it was early morning and it was empty. The springs were hot and clean, and we loved it. Another cool spot in the area is Willow Creek (Whitehorse Ranch hot springs). Also we drove down to...More

This place is weird and creepy. Really odd, as well. The soaking "pools" are two cement squares. You sit on metal cans. Changing house is made from rusty corrugated metal. Not my cup of tea.
