Camping with kids at Grover Hot Springs

March 2005

We would like any recommendations/comments good and bad about Grover Hot Springs in Markleville for camping. There will be two families with kids 9, 7 & 4. Ali


That is a great age for GHS. My extended camping group went once and the kids (ages 13 &15) still talk about it. Great bicycling, good hike to waterfalls, big rocks to climb all over the camp area, maybe a stream going through and of course the hot springs and pool. I recall something unusual about the pricing for the hot springs/pool but don't recall what it was.... Bear lockers and the possibility of were the only negative. There is a great restaurant/bar at the intersection where you turn to get on the road to the camp. We took the kids there for breakfast and dinner. Have fun! jodi


We love Grover Hot Springs. No special comment on the campground, it's typical and very nice. Bring quarters for showers. The surrounding area is really beautiful. Pretty high though, so dress warmly unless you're going mid-summer months. Letitia
