I have used the hot springs without camping, and lately I have been camping without soaking, so I'm breaking them into two spots. This is the camping spot.When the hot springs road turns left, take a right and park at any of the several rough camping spots. The hot springs is a little less tan a mile further on.
Friday night in peak fall color season, there are five groups of campers within sight. Lucky for me, exactly the same spot I had last spring was still available, so I hopped on it.
On the downhill edge, facing into the valley, so it still feels private despite the crowd.
So far, nobody camping but me.
I've been here an hour-ish, 4:30-5:30. Five vehicles have gone in, two have come out, so there ya go.
There's a moon tonight, so I'm looking forward to walking over the hot tubs around sunset.
Now I can say I have camped here as well as soaked many times. At the right turn of the road to the springs, going from east-ish to south-ish is a spot, level, off the road, outside the "No Camping" perimeter. Got there at basically dusk, parked, walked to the springs. Beautiful evening!
