California Hot Springs Resort & RV Park
Nestled inside the entrance to the Sequoia National Monument east of Ducor, the pools at the California Hot Springs Resort are celebrating their 100th birthday. Development of the facility began in 1882 and grew into a hotel, swimming pool and therapeutic center. In later years, fires destroyed the hotel and the commercial center, and eventually the property was abandoned. In 1983, Ronald and Mary Gilbert bought and restored the facility, reopening it in 1985, so that people from all over the world can come to enjoy the naturally pure hot springs water.
