Far from sources of light and air pollution, our desert environment, remote location, and higher altitude combine to create near-perfect stargazing conditions.

Pan for gold

Fire your imagination with gold panning. This is the process of sifting through piles of stream sediment with a special pan to find gold.



If you love competitive team shooting, you as a player eliminate opponents from play by hitting them with dye-filled gelatin capsules called paintballs that break upon impact. What fun!

ExplorationYour ATV Base Camp

Aravada Springs gives you a base camp to explore the more than 1000 miles of ATV-friendly trails that wind through the rugged, unparalleled beauty of the Gold Butte and Grand Canyon Parashant National Monuments.
