If Nevada’s far-reaching hot springing culture has piqued your interest but you’re not quite ready to jump in with both feet, Bailey’s Hot Springs is a good place to start. Located just a few minutes out of the quiet community of Beatty, this Nevada hot spring draws its roots back to Nevada’s early mining days when weary prospectors flocked to the springs to wash their clothes, and a hot, reliable bath. Two bathhouses were built in 1906 that still remain on the property.
Soaking in a historic location like this is just one of the reasons that sets Bailey’s apart – that, and the fact that there are 14 RV spaces and hookups on site, making it the perfect road trip soak. Definitely swing by for a restorative dip on its own, or if you’re traveling via RV the hot baths are included with your nights stay. The property owners are also open to tent camping as well if you don’t have your rig in tow. The picnic table area is an idea spot to relax and enjoy the alluring southern Nevada desertscapes, or you can use Bailey’s as a launch pad for exploring nearby Death Valley National Park.
Plus, to make this an eccentric Nevada experience, the property owners have a small collection of exotic pets that roam the grounds. Expect to see peacocks roaming the grounds on your way in and out of the bathhouses. Peacocks accentuating a perfect Nevada hot springing experience? Sounds like quite the memorable soak, right?
