I went there 2 times already and it is one of the best camping spots in California. There is a river, a lake and a natural Jacuzzi.

Beautiful hot springs all different temperatures very clear water. Lots of nudists and drug use within the area, we minded our own business and had a great time. Everyone was very friendly and locals very comfortable being fully nude. Fun and unique experience! Will go...More

Deep Creek is not for everyone. It's not for me. I find that that trash left behind and naked strangers walking by and sharing the same water is a bit disconcerting. Must be my age. I wish I was more "liberal" or relaxed about it...More
