Deep Creek Hot Springs near Hesperia.
« on: January 16, 2020, 08:34:20 PM »
I haven't been to Deep Creek for several years and am planning a trip in the fall.  I recently read that there is an alternative entrance to a new camping area near Bowen Ranch.  According to some reports the step off area of the new place is actually the same lower parking area of the Bowen Ranch.  Apparently Mike the owner is retiring or leaving the area.

I read the new campground will have running water with bathrooms and hot showers.  This could be good or bad depending on the crowds the place could draw. Deep Creek's remoteness and lack of facilities tended to keep the crowds down.  It seems to have been discovered on the web.

Has anyone been to the new place and has anyone heard if the new campground will be clothes free like Bowen?

The website for the new campground near Bowen Ranch is up and running.  They've yet to install the wells for showers and other amenities.

deepcreekhotspringscampground.com     The campground and parking area will be about 160 acres.  At the bottom of the info page on parking and camping they state that nudity is accepted in the camping areas and request cover ups for the common areas so I guess clothing will be required in the showers. I'm assuming nudity will be okay to and from the camping and parking areas.  I'll try to get out there this spring for a look see when it is more developed.
