Swim with the donkeys!

Free/dispersed only.

Great dispersed camping on BLM land, right next to hot springs. One of our favorite dispersed sites as well as hot springs. There are 5-6 different springs within close proximity and at different temperatures so look around and try them all. The abundant wild donkeys and pronghorn also use the cooler warm springs as a drinking hole which makes an interesting soak. The spots around the springs fill up but there are lots of hills and land around to get some space. No amenities of any kind, dispersed/boondocking only.

Between towns of Austin and Eureka on 50. When we were there, these little towns and few others on way to Tonopah believed COVID-19 was a hoax and many businesses & restaurants shunned mask use or social distancing (see photo).

The hot springs are easier to find first time if you come in off 376 rather than 50.

Could not find, no cell service

I went to the coordinates provided in the Dyrt app, and nothing was there except a mine. I had absolutely zero cell service (not even 1x) in this valley with Verizon. I’m pretty confused what the other comments about because I didn’t see anything. If you attempt, definitely download maps offline in advance.

Edit: I moved on to another site but now, looking at the coordinates in the Dyrt app and the location when searching Google Maps, they are very different. Perhaps the Google Maps location is where it actually is.

Remote relaxing hot springs

This place is definitely in the middle of nowhere along Highway 50. I was a little sketched out driving down the dirt road without cell service but the hot springs were easy to find and seemed clean. There were a few other groups there and everyone shared the tubs. Clothing optional! Have plenty of water and take precautions, but highly recommend.

Hot Springs off the beaten path

If you take the road off Hwy 50 there is an area with hot springs and a place to camp. No covered areas but set up fire pits so may be best for camper van/ RV style trips. Hot spring at the top has a silt bottom but very relaxing, and cell phone service! Drive in was packed gravel and got muddy when we were coming in because of rain but our campervan had no issues.
