town.tecopa hot springs

The first time I camped here I was in college and didn't know any better. The whole place kinda frightened me - it was so minimal and barren. Tecopa is not much of a town. The desert here has small rustic resorts, RV camping & mineral springs baths, along with triple digit summer heat. I visited during winter and stayed only one night. A dozen years or more later, I returned for a busy holiday weekend - to stay at one of the resorts (and I use that word loosely). Rooms were small, unkept, and expensive. I thought to myself - I would rather be lying on a sandy desert wash, camping out under the stars than to pay for this again. But, I have also met people who love this funky desert hot springs location. To each their own.

description:
If you're expecting a gorgeous palm oasis hot tub resort, forget it. Not luxurious, old outdated cinderblock bath house. No green lawns, no lush trees, very barren, minimal services. This place is a sleepy, quiet haven for desert escapees w/ trailers & RVs, who wanna soak under the open starry skies. Minimal rental cabins and motel rooms. The vacant scenery in town is quite minimal, so you best plan on visiting nearby Death Valley National Park, Dumont Dunes or China Ranch for some better visuals.
