Middle of Nowhere Surprise!

This funky little private resort and campground, on the way from nowhere to anywhere, has more than you might expect from first glance. The large, dry camping area offers a large field for folks to spread out without being on top of each other. While there are a handful of hookups sites for RV’s, we preferred the less expensive field option.  They have a couple of pit toilets near the field, as well as a full bathroom and shower area.  With our solar powered system, we were able to keep our battery topped off while taking advantage of all that the springs have to offer, which is just a short walk away. 

They also offer some tiny cabins for rent, each with its own unique rustic charm. The public bath house has a large indoor swimming pool, clean changing rooms, sparkling bathrooms and showers. The outdoor, natural pools are what make this place so unique. Three pools, three differing temperatures helps folks find their own “just right.” The springs have a decidedly rustic charm, with lots of converted farm buildings and antique features, so you might want to adjust your city expectations to a more rural and rougher edged setting. But hot water on a very cold night with views of the starry sky above are just the right about the right cure for whatever ails you. 

The springs are located about midway between the larger towns of La Pine and Lakeview, around 70ish miles from each, where you can find large grocery stores and services. A few convenience stores, gas, and post offices can be found in the tiny hamlets along the highway. It is a remote, lovely and quiet spot on the edge of this large lake.
