Facilities Overview



Welcome to the Warm Springs LDS Recreational Facility! We are open year-round to LDS Church members and their friends and family. The facility consists of two pools, camping grounds, fields, streams, and limited RV parking. There are bathroom facilities with showers.

Our main attractions are our two gorgeous warm spring pools. The upper pool is located directly at the spring. Its beautiful, tranquil setting is the perfect place to swim. It has a gravel bottom and is kept au'naturel as we can manage.




The lower pool is fed from a stream connecting it to the upper pool. It is a man made, cement, more traditional pool. With picnic and bbq facilities it is the perfect place to spend a day with the family, throw a big party, or a Church activity.




There are ample camping spaces available perfect for families, scout camps, and girls camps. Large groups can pay a fee to rent the entire ranch for private events.

Come on down to Warm Springs and see this beautiful oasis in the desert!

History

In 1968, Howard Hughes, having seen the Warm Springs area during a test flight, purchased the entire Warm Springs Ranch.

In 1978, 2 years after the death of Howard Hughes, the Warm Springs Ranch was purchased by the L.D.S. Church. After a couple of years, the cattle operation started to decline, and the church planted fruit and nut trees, hoping to develop the ranch as a welfare farm. The experimental welfare farm was unsuccessful, so they sold all but 75 acres to other entities. The remaining acreage , which is now called Warm Springs Recreational Ranch, was subsequently developed into a unique recreational area for members of the Church. Included are many camp sites plus two large swimming pools. The Ranch hosts numerous large and small family and group outings, using ground water pumped from a private well to support the grassy fields and campgrounds. Service missionary couples are called to maintain it.
