This is a beautiful campground that is great for renting and grabbing a great spot near Ashland as your driving through. Who doesn’t want to stop at a hot spring? Jump in and cool off or just spend the night as you’re passing through. Very interesting place to stay and clothing is optional at the springs. The area we pitched our tent was open with outlets nearby if you needed them. This was a perfect spot to stop on our way north.
We like to pick campgrounds that have extra amenities, like hot tubs or saunas. This one has both. The spa area is a nice add on to your stay. The facilities are old and therefore feel gritty. Which is the feeling that matches the campground. To get to the RV parking you have to drive/walk by the tent campers, which even off season, felt like those staying there permanently live in their tents and cars. Behind the RV parking is the area where full time residents live, which is also a bit rough. We didn’t feel unsafe, but we definitely didn’t feel like hanging out outside our RV or letting the kids play on the playground. If you go, don’t expect a resort. Think transient hippies and you’ll have your expectations aligned closer to reality.
Lots of campers and rv ers. Pool, sauna. Crowded.
This is a great place to stay that has all you could need! Cell reception, WiFi, pool, hot tub, Ashland is like 5 minutes away, restrooms, even a sauna! Clothing is optional in the pool area let at night so be aware if you’re not into that or have kids. tent sites aren’t separated meaning you pitch your tent in an area where everyone else does. Other than that, I Highly recommend!
The hot springs are a fun and relaxing place and the prices for campground are very reasonable. I liked how the campgrounds weren’t in the middle of town and the surrounding area is quite pretty. Downside is a lot of transients frequent the area which takes from the natural beauty. Some beautiful hiking trails nearby in Talent and outside of Ashland.
The camping area is a couple of “meadows” or grassy backyard and you pick a spot to place your tent. The camping fee includes 1 person in the “spring”. If there are 2 people they charge $25/tent and the 2nd person is an additional $15 and dogs are $5. A bit steep for camping in a meadow without a designated area. There were several picnic tables and I was lucky to get one. I don’t know that I’d feel comfortable camping here alone. The “spring” is a pool and a jacuzzi type set up. It’s ok but I prefer the hot springs that are a bit more natural. Also, after 6pm clothing is optional. The drinking water and shower water smell like sulfur which is a bit nauseating. The big plus is that Ashland is 2 miles down the road. There are quite a few long term people and it’s not very organized so it feels a bit dirty. My friend that I was with said he felt like he was sleeping in a junkyard.
Great place to soak and relax
relaxed atmosphere and reasonably priced for car and tent camping, plus camping fees include access to the rejuvenating sulphur-rich hot spring pool, swimming pool and sauna. this is right in the Ashland/Medford metro area so is very convenient for travel days when you have things to do in town. also hosts interesting events like yoga classes and live music!
great hotspring pools and cool lounge areas, I just wish they would stop letting sunscreen in the pools, that stuff is toxic af.
