We are reopening May 1st.
Grassy, shaded parks surrounding the pool house at Givens Hot Springs provide a pleasant, peaceful setting
for RV-ing, dry camping, or just hanging out for an afternoon or evening.
No dogs are allowed on Givens property, and no smoking is allowed in housing units.

RVs and dry camping are open year 'round, along with one kitchenette cabin, and one rental trailer (See information below.)
Camping prices include: Tax, showers and swimming on one calendar day for the first two people in tent, RV or housing (except our two-bedroom trailer, which includes four people). Each additional person in tent, RV or housing unit-$8.
Sorry, no discount for campers who don't swim, and swim may not be transferred to anyone else.
Dry Camping / RV Camping
Hot water: We recommend filling RV tanks with cold water at home. That, mixed with our hot, is great for washing dishes, showering, etc. (Can use turned off water heater as cooling tank.) Bringing your own drinking water is also recommended (because all of ours is hot), or you can purchase 23 ounces bottles of chilled water in the pool house for $1.
Fire pits and tables: Available on a first-come or shared basis. Please be mindful of other people wanting to use them. Bring your own firewood.
Cabins and Trailers
If RV's or dry camping aren't your style, be transported back to the 1940's by renting a small, rustic cabin built by two of the Givens' sons, or a unique 1960's, two-bedroom trailer. The Marriott they're not! But if you're more interested in history and moderate comfort than luxury, you will enjoy this 'civilized camping experience.'
Bedding: Provided for beds in housing units. Bring extra bedding for additional sleeping arrangements.
No TV or TV service in cabins or trailers. Bring your own TV with DVD or VCR player, DVD's, tapes, etc.
