We called and made a reservation at a price of $35/night. Upon showing up, the new owners charged us double without ever contacting us, and told us there were no cancellations allowed. They claimed they did not have our contact info to tell us about...More
New owners, very nice, helped us find a spot with afternoon shade. Sites are very close to each other but was a pull through so easy for us to get in. Excellent wifi. Older park but everything was working well, Pay showers. Enjoyed the hot...More
Other than the horrible camper in site #20 with 2 brown dogs who leaves their poop wherever they go this is a fantastic campground. Great pull through sites with fire pits and mounted grills, coin op showers, natural hot springs are really wonderful - different...More

When I went several years ago the price for my very small camper and 3 adults was $40. We all embraced the fact that this place is a natural hot spring environment therefore there will be an odor, not always. The facilities are dated but the surrounding hills, the ride in from route 20, the staff, the Camp shows on the stage at night, the other campers all added to an experience that screams of 1950’s and for that I very much enjoyed this place. My expectations are usually low since I’m camping of course. This is a place where you can shed pretensions and you have to do some things yourself. Overall, when you consider how well the pools have been arranged, the constant flow of the pools to keep them fresh and the safety of the pools this is a pretty good deal. I’ve been to hot springs that were in their natural state and there was jeopardy of getting in too deep and hurting yourself.
I highly recommend Fountain of Youth because of it’s corniness above all and it is just another of the many adventures on your vacation that will be with you the rest of your life, a good story to tell. As many of you already know, many things you experience while camping are much better when the season is over and you’re talking about it over Thanksgiving dinner. Go off the beaten path and savor the slow pace of getting to and from Fountain of Youth and then continue on your trip knowing you have stepped back in time.
Happy trails campers,
