And I think Mystic is tilted a little more on the dumpy side, unfortunately.
I can appreciate some of the things, but there is just too much bonified junk lying around, and too many things that need to be fixed/touched up. Things that would cost little to no money, only a little labor time and motivation. My advice is to start with getting realistic about what is trash and what can be used... and fix the little things.
That being said, it still has a charm about it.. the hot springs are nice, although my wife and I had very dry skin after soaking a few times. That has never happened to us in any of the numerous hot springs we've soaked in thru the years... the minerals usually leave your skin soft and silky. The view from the top tubs is nice, if you can block out some of the dump below in some spots.
The deeper pool was nice, even though there is nowhere to sit and it's too deep to kneel. The larger shallower pool was hotter, and this was pretty nice... but it was very silty/slimy.. probably because they were doing some digging and clearing of the water line above that pool, and while we were there in the other pool, drained about 10 gallons of mud/water into that pool. Kinda lame.
We stayed in the Grow Cabin... a very small, but nice little cabin with electricity.. by far the nicest 'lodging' on the property, although I didn't look inside the buses, but they didn't look too appealing from the outside. It was clean and cozy, beds were a touch saggy, but not too bad.. Unfortunately the flannel sheets were horribly scratchy and uncomfortable. The bathrooms were about 150 ft away, which was fine.
The camping area is nice in that it is all grass... however, there aren't really individual "sites".. only a couple picnic tables scattered about.
All in all, a unique place that I'm glad my wife and I went to. If you keep your expectations in check, it is worth a visit. As had been said, this place has alot of potential.. while still keeping it funky. It just needs some better attention and care. I wish MIke the best in trying to get this accomplished.
