Tecopa Hot Springs
There is a resort here, and I know that the owners have a very pleasant establishment, however the public baths in the town of Tecopa is in the middle of no place and consists of two, count them two, enclosed mineral pools, and a parking lot. There are no phones, so no one can answer your questions. It is essentially a public bath. One pool is for women and the other is for men. Some times they close one of the enclosures, so the operation hours are 3 hours for women and then 3 hours for men. Its nice but a little primitive. If roughing it to you means a motel room with an ice machine, and you want to actually spend time in a place where you can get some pampering, try the Tecopa Hot Springs Resort, just up the road.

Getting There-
Las Vegas to Tecopa Hot Springs

Head south on I-15 until you reach State Route 160 then travel west. You will drive through the desert and pass by the southern portion of the Red Rock National Monument. Continuing up the mountain side you will pass Mt. Potosi on your left. This is the mountain that Carol Lumbard's chartered plane crashed and where she died. You will descend into a different desert valley. This is the Parhump Valley. A sign will appear that says Tecopa. Follow the road into Claifornia. At some point you will end up on the Old Spanish Trail. Follow the signs into Tecopa and on to the hot springs.
