Deep Creek Hot Springs and Campground - Bowen Ranch
No trip to this region is complete without a foray to the Deep Creek Hot Springs in nearby Hesperia. Only a few minutes from Highland, it's a desert oasis. The Bowen Ranch allows primitive camping and RV parking for a small fee, but be aware there are no water, electric or other hookups. Guests are asked to help out and keep the region clean. Pets are allowed. Generators can be used, but guests are asked to be aware of the noise and respect quiet hours at night. The hot springs themselves are a two-mile hike from the parking and camping area and are a series of mid-depth to shallow lakes. Swimming and relaxing are the norm, and expect to see a wild assortment of characters, from clothed to unclothed.
