Stayed here for 2 nights in July. Initial impressions pretty awful - dilapidated accommodation and no shortage of signs saying what you can't do - but we unloaded the car and settled in to the cabin... Wonderful hikes nearby - try Josephine Lake for example. The hot springs consist of a swimming pool sized area of water at warm bath temperatures and a small feeder pool that was really hot. Residents can use the pool after sundown and this is the prime reason for staying (rather than camping at a fraction of the price in the campsite 300 yards away); enjoying the warm springs and watching the night stars are just magnificent.
Overall, this site is a huge missed business opportunity; there is no electricity, no running water, nowhere to wash or clean cooking equipment, no attempt made to provide services of any kind. Can see why some visitors would be hugely disappointed but with the right attitude and expectations this is a neat break. And with the right business approach it could be exceptional.
