Aravada Springs Natural Swimming Pond
Visiting Aravada Springs is a unique experience indeed. Think of it as a shady retreat from the dry desert weather where you can rest both body and soul. Grill up some hotdogs and hamburgers, throw on a steak, or enjoy some of your favorite munchies while the kids swim for hours on end. We have tubes and goggles for your enjoyment as well.
Quiet Solitude, But Never Boring!
At Aravada Springs, you’ll find a delicate balance of relaxing solitude and fun activities to keep your group highly entertained. For history buffs, this place is a mecca for everything from ancient Indian artifacts to old farm relics used by pioneer ranchers who called this place home for years. Be sure to check out “Grandpa’s Cabin” near the main lodge and see how folks lived back when photographs weren’t selfies on a cell phone and when the only way to get around was by horse and wagon.
If you’re up for a game of pool head over to our rustic lodge. Chill out with some friends and family over a friendly game of cards or play board games with the kids. We also have farm animals like horses, goats, birds, and fish that children love to interact with. Sometimes you can even coax our camp host into a ride around the campsite on horse and buggy!
