SPECIAL COMMENTS & PERSONAL OBSERVATIONS
O F THE TWO RV GYPSIES

 

This campground is open mid-May through September only. Canyon Hot Springs is one of the few campgrounds in this area that could handle a 40 foot RV. The road was gravel/dirt. The sites were grassy and close together and had a picnic table. The two RV Gypsies had 30 amp and water, no sewer. NO TV. NO AT&T cell phone service of course. Wi-Fi was ONLY at the office, and even there it was super slow. The water pressure was good.

Trains were close by, right behind the next row of RVs. The trains were usually long and very noisy, and they went by often. They didn't blow their horn every time, but the tracks were squeaky, and of course since the tracks were so close, the noise was awfully loud.

Mineral Pool & Hot Tub: When the two RV Gypsies first arrived in the afternoon, the pools weren't too crowded. But in the evening the smaller pool (the hotter one) was standing room only, and people were shoulder-to-shoulder. A single swim ranged from $9.50 to $11.50 depending on age. A day pass ranged from $13.50 to $16.50. Family prices (2 adults & 2 Juniors were $29 to $39.50). Pools closed at 8 p.m. or 9 p.m. depending on the month. Way too early to please the two RV Gypsies. As far as the two RV Gypsies' opinion goes, it was just like a heated swimming pool that cost in addition to the camping costs. The two RV Gypsies did NOT use the pools here, but instead went to Crazy Creek Hot Springs. It was a bit of a drive, but so very much nicer, bigger, and worth it. There is a separate page on that hot springs on this website and it can be seen by using the link at the bottom of this page.

Most of the rules at this campground were standard. It is bear country though, so that means there are extra precautions that must be taken.

No washing RVs or vehicles. One vehicle per site. There were coin operated showers (not free). The two RV Gypsies have their own shower, thank goodness. No tents on serviced sites. Check-out time was 11 a.m. or there would be an additional charge. There were also cabins available, but some did not provide bedding or towels, and some did, depending on size and type. No TV or phones in any cabins. Most don't have a kitchen. Prices vary. None of this concerns the two RV Gypsies however.

It was confusing when the two RV Gypsies got there. There was no room for Lee to park the RV to go into the office, and he had to block the entry. The first building was the wrong building, so Lee walked around the corner to find the office. Even the directions and map they gave him to find his site was confusing. Because of the RV being so big, he had to go a different way than the other RVs did. But he did find his site OK, eventually. Breakfast and dinners were served but quite expensive. The two RV Gypsies did not eat there.

The hotter pool is behind the pool seen below and neither one was very big.

Below: The site of the RV Gypsies, which was way too close to the other site. There were tree branches hitting the slide-outs on both sides of the RV. Later when Lee checked out the pools, the hot pool in the back was standing-room-only with people standing shoulder-to-shoulder. Too bad Lee didn't carry a camera to get a picture of that. Anyway, that was enough to discourage Karen from going there. So they drove their toad to Crazy Creek Hot Springs instead, which Karen found to be much nicer.
