14 Parks near Tecopa Hot Springs, California
Mar 2016 - $29.00
This place is old and looks it, but it's not a bad place to stay in an area where there are few options with hookups. The connections worked fine, and there is wi-fi, although it only worked on and off. No Verizon service at all and I don't think any cell networks work either. Manager was very nice and friendly. Cash or check only. The best part is the bath house. There are two private rooms with a shower and a soaking tub with water directly from the nearby hot spring. Very soothing and relaxing. Shower, tub and room were very clean. The shower is standard size, but the soaking pool easily accommodates two people. Restrooms were very clean too. Very quiet place. There is no town per se, though, so don't expect to gas up or do any shopping. There is a convenience store, didn't check it out though. The café across the street has great food. Worth stopping on the way to/from Death Valley for a quiet night and nice soak. - Pdxjoanne

We were planning on staying in Tecopa for one night...and it stretched into four as we waited for some general deliver mail....We moved here from another park as this one was $7 cheaper per night and is the only one in town with wifi. Which worked great, by the way. (There is no cell service in the entire valley) The park is simply a gravel lot with full hook-ups, but they have two private hot baths that were a terrific way to end the day!
The people here were some of the friendliest we have met in an RV park. We got a tour of the area from a couple that has been wintering here for 15 years! They gather for coffee each morning and cocktail hour and cards each evening.
There are quite a few little nooks and crannies to discover in this area, if you spend some time here.
NOTE: There is no drinking water in the valley. Nor is there any water to fill your tanks. The only water in the valley is the same water that fills the hot pools and it is chock full of minerals. We were able to run water through our system, avoiding the water heater, with the full hook-ups. Come prepared! The nearest water is in Pahrump, 35 miles away. The good news, is we never needed to use our shower as we soaked in the hot pools each day and showered there... - ALbums
Dec 2015 - $12.00
The $12 is based on monthly rates. We have been staying here for 15 years and it just gets better each year. We have a home about 40 miles from here yet we prefer to spend Christmas and New Years here with great friends and the healing hot springs. Trips to old gold mines, Death Valley and then a soak in the springs....it just does not get any better!
Morning coffee is accompanied with bakery goods donated by some of the campers. Happy hour is usually followed by card games and occasionally a communal camp fire. Wifi is good and the restrooms, free private hot spring baths, clubhouse and grounds are spotless. Your cell phone will most likely not work and that can be another reason to visit here. - paulg

We didn't go there for the camp site, but a good stopping off place for the night, a chance to soak/relax in the hot springs and trip to the excellent China Ranch Date Farm. Very friendly owners and staff. Camp sites are very basic in an open lot with pull through spots and OK electric, but no water. No shade. Very quiet and dark. Dump site available. No cell or OTA signal. Would definitely stay again for their hot springs and to go back to the date farm. - RPWAINC

Owner and her staff are very nice and helpful people. It was a joy to be able to stay at their resort. I will stay here again in the future because the tubs for the hot springs were almost always at a consistent temperature. - R. Bowne

Our second time visiting Tecopa Hot Springs (the first time we stayed at Delight's). We chose this place because Pastel's Bistro--a destination restaurant if ever there were one--is on the property. It's fabulous. Other pluses: they have their own labyrinth to walk and the views from the spaces up the hill are quite nice. The bathhouse for the hot springs isn't very good, though. Showers are separate from the small soaking tubs, so bring a cover up. Both tubs are fully enclosed. (Delight's are larger and one opens up to the stars.) Very nice management, though. We would stay again if soaking isn't our priority. - JCLC

This camping experience is certainly not for everyone. The main (only?) reason to camp here is the hot springs. The first thing to be aware of is that you will want to arrive with all of the fresh water that you will need for your stay. The water all comes from the hot springs source. The factors that make it great for soaking, make it not so great for putting into your rig. It is high in mineral content and alkaline, giving it a strong laxative effect. The alkalinity also quickly corrodes plumbing and fixtures. So, the best bet is to bring all of the water you will need. This used to be a county park but fell into disrepair. It is now run by a conservancy that has improved the springs considerably, but not so much the campground. The campground is a not overly attractive field with some long term and some trashed camping units, along with folks like us visiting for a few days. So do it for the water and not for the view. Check in is at the hot springs across the street from the campground and is open 24 hours every day. We had 30 amp hookup and used our tank water only for drinking and cooking. Other than that we used the bath house. There is no cell service. The campground does have WiFi for a fee, but it is quite expensive, so we did not use it. You can also pick up slow internet at the clubhouse in the campground. Satellite is not a problem. The hot springs are described below. The price is certainly right since use of the hot springs, typically $7 per person per day, comes with camping. We would definitely come back to enjoy the hot springs for a few days. - TheJim

We have stayed here on many occasions, the hot baths are absolutely wonderful. This is definitely a place to unwind and de-stress. There are no club houses etc., I wouldn't say its a place you would go if you wanted to party, and not a place for younger children. There is the check in area which has a small seating area with a computer you can access; if you park in a space closer to the buildings you can sometimes pick up their WiFi. They have a massage person who is here at times, that my husband swears by. It gets very very hot in the summer months so make sure your A/C is working!! If you visit, take a nighttime dip in one of the outside pools and enjoy the warm night air and beautiful stars! - Gypsy Lorna

What a funky, yet delicious, place. For $33, you get full hookups, desert views, serenades by the frogs in the lake (which, after very silent Death Valley, is a song to be savored), level sites, and 24/7 access to 100-104 degree private hot springs baths. You are allowed 30 minutes each time, but can go whenever. Some rooms are open to the sky, and the night sky is spectacular here. (Star parties at nearby Pastels Bistro--which you MUST go to--are held around new moons.) And how many campgrounds do you go to that have on-site massage as well as luxurious robes for sale in the office? Facilities are a bit worn, but still *delightful*. Dogs won't be too happy here--lots of gravel and mineral y ground--but they'll get over it and you won't mind after soaking in those yummy mineral baths. - JCLC

Very nice park, clean, plenty of green space between sites. Lots of trees but many sites are satellite friendly. Nice walk around the lake but you need to watch out for the bird "offerings" on the cement. - bthomforde

We've stayed here many times. The sites are situated around a pretty pond, there are shade trees everywhere, paddleboats, big swimming pool and walking paths. Security is good. Our only complaint is that the ducks are starting to take over and there is a lot of duck/goose poop around. Otherwise it is a wonderful relaxing, green oasis in the desert. Good idea to make reservations. - toccata

Maybe I hit it at the wrong time but I tried calling to make a reservation on Friday for the coming Saturday and Sunday and called at 5:50pm and again at 6:30 and had to leave a message both times for them to call back.
They didn't. I called again 9;30am Saturday and the same scenario.
I arrived Saturday around 4:15pm and asked why they didn't return my phone calls and was told they close at 5:00pm on Friday. ( there phone message states they close at 7:00pm.) They still didn't call back on any of the 3 messages.
I was assigned a site which I did not like and they did let me move to a ( premium site at a little more which I was told I could pay the difference the next day. That was OK with me.
Although the premium site was not any different from the 2 next to it which were not premium.
It was a weekend and there were a lot of kids riding around and cutting through our site to get to the lake.
We even left after one night even though we paid for two.
They didn't open up until 9:00am so I called and left a message that if I could get a refund for the second night minus the extra cost for the first night that would be great.
Guess what...no return call.
When we checked in they did not mention any code for the wifi so I can't really comment on that.
They do have cable outlets but do not offer it.
I would not stay here again. - twowoofs

I planned on spending a month in Pahrump and I liked the reviews of this park so when I checked in I paid for the full month. I have stayed in this area before although not at this park. The staff was very friendly. All of the sites are pull through and I had my choice. It took a couple of tries to get far enough forward to hook up. The sites are gravel and most of them have grass. First problem - website said TV was available for a charge. I would have paid the charge but they didn't have any converters available. Second problem - the internet was terrible. If I managed to connect the signal was so slow it was worse than being on dial up. I changed sites in the morning so the internet was more reliable but still slow. The road to the park is dirt and when it rained it was very muddy. I ended up pulling out after 5 nights and I managed to get a refund but the manager was very reluctant to give it to me. If you don't care about park supplied wireless, have a satellite dish and a toad I would recommend this park but it wasn't suitable for my needs. (Part of that is my fault - I carry a scooter instead of a toad and I thought it would be warmer. I ended up driving into town several times and my rig was covered in mud by the time I left) - Janshark

If you enjoy drama, and want to deal with someone who is drunk 24/7; then this is the park for you!! When you check in, you have to be here before 9 a.m. or forget it!! The bathrooms are poorly cleaned, the overall maintenance of the park is horrible. Weeds everywhere!! Some people are charged for internet--when it works, and some are not; depending how drunk she is upon check-in. You must also give your ip-address so she can track what you do online. As for "friendly", that is a misused term for this park. There are plenty of reasonable and beautiful parks in town that are more pleasant and enjoyable. Especially for long stays!! I will NEVER stay at this park again OR recommend it to anyone!!! - pahdumpy

This is a great little park. No frills, no clubhouse or anything like that, but is a slow-paced, very relaxing and very well maintained park. The park is set up to handle extended-stay or long-term but also provides for over-night or short term stays. The monthly rate is excellent. They charge $350.00 per month flat-rate including electric, water and sewer in the price for a 30Amp and $375.00 per month for 50Amp. The management is very friendly and helpful. All the sites are pull-through. They have no back-in sites so it makes it very convenient. They are approximately 1-mile down the road from the 5-star Terrible's Lakeside RV Resort. It's a short drive or a nice walk to their casino and to take advantage of their nice lake. The town of Pahrump is small but has all the necessities and is a quaint and friendly town. There are a total of 6 casinos in town and a very wide variety of restaurants to include Mexican, Chinese, Thai, Filipino, BBQ, America, German and three exceptionally good buffets. I would highly recommend staying at this park. The park is clean and there are grass areas and picnic tables at every site. There are only two drawbacks, and they are of minor concern. One, is there are no shade trees and it does get HOT in the summer. Second, the swimming pool is not heated so it is only available during the summer months. - Terry10

Escapee parks are usually always nice parks to stay at. The laundry room is nice with $1 wash and $1 for 45 minutes to dry and it is not always busy. The people are about the same as people anyplace in the USA, there is the good, there is the bad and there is the ugly even in people that live in any RV park. The park is usually quiet most of the time and the 5MPH speed limit is observed by some of the drivers. This park, as well as most Escapees parks, has mostly full time residents, many being pretty old. The 4x4ing and hiking around the mountains is what draws us to this area for a few weeks a year. - Roger W

Stayed here 12 nights. This is a very clean, quiet, and friendly park. All sites are pull-through and level. The laundry is clean and even has a fenced in area for line drying clothes. Water pressure was adequate. They have a nice rec center that is not fancy, but very comfortable and offers some activities. We will definitely stay here again. The site owners were friendly and we felt very comfortable here. - Mgtann

This park is for Escapees members only. As is usual with an Escapees facility, we were greeted warmly on our arrival by two of the residents. They informed us that since it was Sunday the office was closed, but we could dry camp for free for the first night and then check in with the office the next day if we needed or wanted to stay longer.
This park, like all Escapees parks, has nice amenities. There is a large clubhouse with a well stocked library, a laundry room and a crafts room. Residents enjoy many planned activities and visitors are welcome to join in.
The rate I quote above is for a full hook-up site, but since we just stayed one night our rate was free. We'll continue to use this park when in this part of the country. - BruceandKathyWA

A gravel lot in the desert. Great views but not much else to do while here.
I must say it was cold while we were here, so using the pool or hot tub wasn't in the cards. No green around the sites.
We paid for the month but only stayed 2 weeks because of the cold.
Would not stay here again, there are plenty of nice RV parks in the area to choose from. - bthomforde

We stayed 2 nights to make a day trip into Death Valley NP. The park is located on the outskirts of town requiring a drive through a residential area along 2 lane paved roads. The transition from the city streets to the park required negotiating a significant grade change posing a scraping hazard. Then a climb up a single lane paved entrance road to the registration parking area. Then yet another climb up to the site area passing over several speed bumps.
The park was built on a significant slope. There was an attempt to tier the sites level but not all of them appear level. The interior roads are paved and sites are gravel. The roads and turns were negotiable. There was a mixture of pull through and back in sites. The P/T sites were long enough for larger coaches with their toads attached. Sites had sufficient room for opening slides. They have full hook ups - water, electricity (50/30/20 AMP), & sewer. The utility connections were at the rear of the site requiring parking at the rear of the site to reduce hose/cable runs. The sewer connection was at the ground level so it was easy to establish a downhill flow. Distance and gravel areas establish privacy between the sites. There was not an outside table or fire pit. There seem to be some long term residents.
There were a few trees scattered among the sites so satellite reception was dependent on site assignment. The park did not provide cable TV and there was no information about broadcast channels. Didn't try to get any broadcast channels. The park provided WiFi was "meant for casual use only; emails and light browsing" so we didn't try to use it. It was password protected. Our Verizon WiFi hotspot worked well. Didn't try the NET10 phone so don't know about the reception.
There was fenced pet area in a corner of the park. The ground cover was small pebbles and artificial grass. There was a bag dispenser and waste collection station in the park.
If we returned to the area, we probably would stay at another park in town. - bsb814

Seems to be a fairly new park/resort. Wide gravel back in sites with no shade trees. This is a resort type park with pickle ball courts, work out room, pool, cabins and park models for rent. Nice feature is a place to wash your RV. Resort is associated with a winery on property that offers free wine tasting and tours (decent wines) and an upscale resturant. - RovingRaders

FHU; 30-50 amp; free cable; free wi-fi if in line of sight of antennas and no rv blockages; pull-thrus in middle share pedestial which makes close parking (like 2 ft. away); asphalt lot; can use the hot tub and pool at hotel; $400/month, everything included. - Keith/Ruth
Apr 2016 - $20.00
$20 is based on the weekly rate of $140 all inclusive. It is basically an asphalt parking lot with back-ins around the perimeter bordered by grass and trees, and pull thrus in the middle with shared pedestals (which can make things a little close when two alternate rigs are sharing a pedestal - only inches between slides; having your own pedestal on one of the islands is the way to go). Several gravel islands between pull-thrus with trees and pretty rose bushes. Sites are good size, utilities are convenient and worked well. Lots of cable stations. WIFI wasn't usable at our site. Restrooms always clean, laundry is $1.50/$1.50 but only 2 washers/dryers. It is convenient and clean, walking distance to casinos, food, shopping, etc; a good stop for overnight or longer. - lets move

Great park spaces good size, great place to walk dog and very friendly staff . We had RZR so was able to go on rides straight from the park. Shopping very close. Would stay again. - Elizabeth24
