  • My fiancé and I went there with a little trepidation after reading the reviews. The drive in along the dirt road was bumpy. We only had a Sudan but we made by going slow. The guy at the ranch was a fe...  more »
  • 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 ...  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.

  • 👟DONT TIE YOUR SHOES IF YOUR NUDE Fun place. Lots of friendly people. Pick up your trash and take it with you back to your car, unless your Mommy and Daddy came with you. You can make it in a regular car all the way to the ranch. Once you get to the ranch. Pay $5 person. Kids are $4 too. Not sure about babies. 30 min hike down (add 45 min with kids) 1 hr hike back up (add hr with kids) If you are paying $5, the roads should be better maintained. My first time there, I helped 2 girls get their car out of the dirt. Showing up after 3pm. Take a flashlight or leave at 6pm.

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Really Beautyful but you have to walk
  • 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
