Tecopa Hot Springs Resort - Hot Springs in California


The private pools are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Music started next to the bath house.

A kind of resort

I climbed up a small hill at the center of Tecopa.

From the Hill 1

From the white cross at the top, there was a 360-degree panorama.

Buildings and RV cars looked like toys.

From the Hill 2

Tecopa Hot Springs Resort is at the southern edge of the spa town.

The half of the premises is a RV park; the other is lodging.


The neon-lighted building is the office.

A bistro is right behind it.


“Tecopa Station” is a small concert venue.

Absolutely the rock quarry-like desert has the resort-like atmosphere.

Accommodation with kitchenette

This is one of rooms of the motel.


Normally the bed is folded on the wall.

The kitchenette has a microwave, a refrigerator, and even an electric cooktop.

Guest Room

First-in, First-served Private Pools

There are two bath houses.

The one in the RV sites are for campers only.

Bath House for Campers

For overnight guests of motels, the bathrooms are in the same building as the lodging.

A key is provided to go through the iron doors.


There are three bathrooms in the left side; only two were available at that time.


Each room is supposed to be used by being locked from inside, on a first-in, first-served basis.


The square-shaped tub is for around four people.

A skylight window is right above the tub.

Tub 2

Tecopa seemed to be popular among Koreans; I found some hangul characters.


The two bath rooms looked almost same, except for the number of doors.

Bathroom 1

The bathroom that has two doors is designed for both overnight guests and walk-in guests to share the same place.

Bathroom 2

The water is clear and odorless, at 109 degrees F.

It was completely free-flown, without choline.

Water Outlet

Somehow music began outside; I went out.

Music 2
So excited…
Tub 1

The band was playing country music, while people dancing.

The night started!
