The town of Tecopa itself is absolutely charming -- if you're into small desert towns and oddball roadside stops. There are a few little resorts and campsites, as well as a "bistro" and BBQ joint. There's also a cute and kitschy "Steak and Beer" place when you first enter the town. This is not an ordinary place. There are no Starbucks. There are no Walmart stores. This is a very simple, barebones town with very few amenities. That's what makes it a nice place to camp, escape from the city and enjoy natural hot mineral spring water.
At this particular place, there are two Jacuzzi sized pools that have the natural hot spring water pumped directly into them. These pools hold two to three people, and can be locked for privacy. This makes for ideal relaxation time for couples.
I should point out that this place is a clothing optional kind of town when it comes to these campsites and resorts. In fact, visitors are encouraged to soak in the hot springs in the nude. So it's not out of the ordinary to run into some naked folks while camping or visiting the bath houses. If this doesn't bother you, then Tecopa is a definite "must-see" spot.
Overall, this was a fantastic weekend, and since Tecopa is such a short drive away, my husband and I have decided to make this a frequent home-away-from-home for when we need to get out and decompress. The town has such a laid back "desert hippie" atmosphere that it's perfect for unwinding and recharging your batteries away from fast-paced city life.
