AKA Palm Oasis Hot Spring and Cinquo Palmas Oasis, it is located on BLM land. Clear water surrounded by palms trees - a lovely setting. Expect nudity. Free camping near spring but take caution of the loose sand.

Directions: From Brawley, California go 15 miles East on SR78, crossing Highline Canal. Take the second dirt right turn 0.5 miles east of the canal. Go 1.6 miles south to Five Palms Warm Well Oasis.

  2. Never knew this even existed and just recently travelled a dirt road from the old Holtville Airstrip north to Hwy 78. Never even saw it. Wow. Does anybody know if it existed back in the 1930s. I am writing a fiction story about that area and would appreciate any information.

  3. We went to Five Palms Well around 2003. We were told by others there that the well was put down before the canal was built to have water for the horses that were used to pull the equipment to build it. They had wells about every 5 miles or so the but there are only 1 or 2 of them now. I loved it there as it is a very peaceful relaxing place to soak. The water temp is perfect for an all day soak if you like. Everyone there was nude

  4. Visited the Oasis this morning. The directions were spot on! I traveled in a SUV AWD vehicle with street tires (and a shovel, an air compressor and some long strips of used carpet…none of which got unpacked). There were about 3 patches of deeper sand which required keeping two of the tires on the more solid edge of the track while negotiating the sand traps.

    Since it was a Monday, I wasn’t expecting to see anyone…and I had the entire place to myself for the couple of hours I spent there. Very relaxing. Beautiful and amazingly trash free. Someone(s) keeping the place nice and clean. The water was clear, about 90-ish with an outside air temp in the 80s. I could see myself grabbing a tent next time and spending a couple of days there.

  5. I love this place, i have been going for 10+ years, its always clean (the locals and most campers strive for it!) I usually see maybe 3 or 4 locals if I am in all day, except on the weekends, you might see 20 people, in the early spring and late fall while its still cool. I usually go in April and Oct, after/before its too cold to camp, and before /after its too hot. You cannot camp within 500 feet, but thats a pretty short walk!

  6. Unless you have an AWD and good tires you will have a problem getting here. I went yesterday and saw an RV stuck in the sand. My subaru obs made it, i thought i was gonna get stuck though but I never stopped when the sand got soft I just kept gassing the car while following tire tracks! We met a local named “Lalo” And he said he maintains the place. Thanks Lalo! He said the RV’s been stuck there for 3 days. Sucks! Anyway. This place is awesome! I just wish people keep it as it is and don’t destroy the place by trashing it! (Pricks who don’t appreciate nature)
