“your oasis in the Chihuahuan desert”
An oasis nestled deep in the Chinati Mountains of West Texas, The Chinati Hot Springs offers its visitors a one-of-a-kind experience. Opened in the 1930’s by the Kingston family and once owned by renowned minimalist artist Donald Judd, the natural spring has provided healing waters to the indigenous people of the area for thousands of years. Today, the Springs offer a peaceful atmosphere for people to relieve themselves of the stresses of everyday life and discover the restorative waters that have made this area so magical.
Chinati Hot Springs is a true oasis - but it takes some planning to get there. The "shortcut" thru Pinto Canyon Road is truly awesome - but it's a dirt road through a true desert canyon, so high-clearance vehicle is a must. If you don't drive a pickup, take the longer route from Marfa through Presidio, then turn right and follow the river to Ruidoso. Also, plan on taking any food or drinks you'll want with you - there is a fantastic communal kitchen and dining area, with lots of fridge space for your things, but no where to buy groceries after you leave Marfa or Presidio. Most of all, be ready for no cell service or interruptions - just enjoy what the desert oasis of Chinati Hot Springs has to offer.
