Faywood Hot Springs Resort offers a mix of clothing-required and clothing-optional accommodations for natural and nudist communities.

The campground has 11 campsites each with a fire ring, water spigot, and picnic table with outhouses located throughout the campground. Guests may enjoy free access to showers and bathrooms in the bath house. Campers can also use the fire pits and hot spring mineral pools. Each of which has a clothing-required or clothing-optional area.

Guests at the clothing-optional campground have access to many of the same on-site amenities, with space for tents and RVs, but are required to wear clothing when leaving the campground. The Gatehouse Casita, located within the clothing-optional campground, is a climate-controlled cabin with full size hide-a-bed, table and chairs, electrical outlet and access to nearby outhouse and hose bib.

The resort also offers six one-bedroom lofted cabins, with occupancy ranging from two to four adults (or two adults and three children), and one historic adobe casita for two. Some cabins are pet-friendly, with one cabin configured to accommodate guests with disabilities.

Pools

A total of 15 mineral soaking pools and hot tubs are spread throughout the Faywood Hot Springs Resort. Each outdoor pool is temperature controlled and secluded in a private outdoor area.

The resort’s clothing-required and clothing-optional areas each house their own three public soaking pools kept at temperatures ranging from cool to hot.

Guests at Faywood can pay an additional fee to reserve time in the resort’s private pools and hot tubs. Overnight guests at the resort may use the clothing-optional bath house, with three pools ranging from cool to hot and an indoor family-size shower. The group pool can hold up to 25 guests in a private, fenced in area, and is appropriate for large families and wedding parties.

On summer nights, resort staff remove the shades covering many of the pools for evening star gazing from the water. Guests with disabilities can easily access most of the resort’s public pools, as well as two private pools and one private hot tub. Photo: Faywood Hot Springs Resort
