campground is usually 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
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 can be reached through the TOC button above and the
letter H for hot springs.
Most of the rules at this campground were standard. It is bear country
though. No washing RVs or vehicles. One vehicle per site. 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,
some do not provide bedding or towels, and some do, depending on size
and type, according to the campground brochures. No TV or phones in
any cabins. Most don't have a kitchen. Prices vary.
