  • Deep Creek is not for everyone. It's not for me. I find that that trash left behind and naked strangers walking by and sharing the same water is a bit disconcerting. Must be my age. I wish I was more ...  read more »
  • Went to this place with some couple of friends and it was superb. The fun was great. My friends wanted us to go there some other time. 
  • There is no particular reason to go here, but if you drive near the 15th roads must roll and a couple of hours for relaxed vacation in mestnvh sources that comprise the natural baths in the rocks. Very cool of the sensations.

  • DO NOT go to the so called 'private entrance' this guy is really off in the head, he will shout at you to give him money which he does not deserve and you will need to walk an hour to get to the spring anyways which is dirty and polluted... GPS does not work here at all, do not expect much from this place and do not goto the private entrance and pay a fee to this scammer.
  • Great spot to hike into and soak. Clothing optional. The weekend usually brings lots of local partiers, but I've never had any issues - everyone is always nice. One of my favorite spots, only a few hours from Los Angeles.
  • This review is for the place and not for some weirdos that come here purposely to do drugs... On hot summer day when you hike up and down for about 45 minutes from the parking it feels like oasis! Natural formation is truly fascinating! Hot springs offers variety of sizes of temperatures, you can actually make your small pool with rocks. Just wish people kept it cleaner and didn't unload their rubbish there
  • Any meet up groups going here ? Send me a message in Facebook for someone's info thanks.
  • I've been here several times and at one time I thought the place was magical. It's not like that anymore! There are some very shady people camping down by the pools and the place is dirty and it smells. I was told by the guy up in the parking lot that there have been 5 deaths there within the last year, including a shooting! It was scary and I will not go there again!
