Fish Lake Valley Hot Springs - Hot Springs in the U.S.

07/05/2019

The camping ground is in the desert near the border between the state of Nevada and California.

The amount of the hot springs water is so huge that makes a koi pond.

Savage Scenery

Fish Lake Valley is located in the northwest  of Death Valley; next to White Mountain Peak that makes state line between Nevada and California.

Dirt Road

The middle of nowhere has impressive sceneries of a deserted landscape.

It is around 30 minutes’ drive along the dirt road.

Water Tank

The road surface is so firm that it is accessible for a normal vehicle.

This water tank is the landmark; there is a fee-free campground.

The place provides a pit toilet, garbage cans, and BBQ grills.

Hot Well, Not Oil Well

Fence

In 1970, thirteen wells were built for oil-drilling.

Hot springs water was found in the only one well, which is located next to the pool.

Hot Well

This area is called Great Basin; no rivers flow to the ocean.

Pool 1

Such geological structure tends to accompany with the artesian groundwater, which makes a flowing well.

 

Pool 2

The pool is around 12 by 6 feet.

Pool 3

The depth is 3 feet, so I dipped in the water while standing inside.

Impossible to see it when soaking.

Soaking 2

The amount of water is 50 gallons per minute, which makes it clean enough.

I was about to be washed out of the current, because the surface of the pool was really slippery covered with moss.

Soaking 1

You may use a scrub brush equipped if you want it.

The water is 40 degrees F water, without taste and odor.

Outflow 1

It flows out in a great deal from the rift of the walls.

Outflow 2

Cars can be parked right next to the pool.

Pond 1

It takes time for hot springs water to leak in the desert, so that there is a man-made pond with colorful koi swimming.

Pond 2

Definitely it will be great camping, while soaking in the beautiful scenery, and playing in the warm pond.
