Perhaps signs like this should be installed throughout the campsite?

I’ll bring it back on track. I think it would be helpful to have signs pointing to where the signs are. That way people can’t say they didn’t see the signs because they didn’t know where the signs were.

Since this thread seems to be going astray....I’ll continue with a reminiscence of Lucky Rich Days......At Lucky Rich’s shotgun wedding what was his brides name.........? Remember it starts with the letter “G”?

@SalineOldTimer: C'mon, I'll buy you a donut!

Do you remember when Lucky Rich and - I can't remember who the other guy was - had the Bulldozer Race?
You'd probably get in a LOT of trouble doing that today...

Donuts? I've seen lots of donuts at Saline. Croissants, sweet rolls, cupcakes...

Excuse me. I've gotta go get something out of the kitchen.😃

1.  Do not camp within 100ft of the hot spring pools or sources. Are people moving rocks to park or camp next to pools?
4.  Do not bring glass wine bottles, jars, or cups near the pools. Simplify to No Glass Near Pools. Too much text and noobs get lost.
5.  Keep dogs on leash at all times and pick up after your dog.  No dogs in pools!  Beware - Coyotes will enforce this rule [rofl]
8.  Do not paint, draw, or graffiti on rocks or structures. This should be a given.  Maybe replace with camp only in designated areas?
10. Do not drive off the main roads.  This means no donuts, or showing off.  Slow down to keep the dust down. Would start this out with Drive SLOW.  In all the years I have never seen a donut at the springs but I always see people driving too fast.

Post it in the shitter, in large print, so people have some reading material. Also post on message board.

The only sign that I think should be by the pools is - 

'please shower before entering'

One thing we have tried to be very conscience of is how loud our radio was. One time while we were packing up to leave we turned the tunes up a bit too loud and were asked to turn it down (Insert embarrassed face). So this time we went with that in mind since it was super bowl and all. We had our XM radio and we were all set. When we tried it out the volume was stuck on high!!! We tried rolling the speaker in the sleeping bag and a pair of jeans to no avail. (good quality sound lol) SO off it went. The scene was actually quite comical. And into Big Pine we went. Found a new speaker at K-Mart and returned to enjoy the rest of the weekend without bothering anyone else. 

Just thought I would share and maybe share a chuckle.

The dog thing is getting beat to death. A lot of the dog owners know the flea bags need be on a leash. Every monument and park except dog parks are required to be leashed. Community,city,county,state, nearly all. So what you think those signs are going to do? Those people don't give a sh*t about others, they are special, you see it, just nobody wants to say it. Until you admit that you need to get past the sign deal and go to another response to the problem nothing is going to change. Goody two shoes don't want pop the dog or confront the owner. You got nothing going for you going forward but dog poop and signs that the dog owners letting go free shi*t on.

If those signs aren't posted in the Palm Spring bulletin board they should be. Time to start calling out people with dogs off leash and on trails. That's what it has come to. There are many many other places for people to take their dogs.

Not that they are new rules, but there are new signs about the NPS rules that were posted on the library doors some time in mid-January 2018. new dog sign.jpg  new drone sign.jpg 

There  were two drones flying in camp over the Christmas - New Years period. One was witnessed by a NPS law enforcement officer who had come in responding to a vehicle rollover on Saline Valley Road. Let's not go out of our way to get law enforcement attention at the springs. For those who feel entitled to let their dogs run off leash, may I suggest that there are lots of other hot springs where such rules aren't present and there is less likelihood of poor outcomes.

Thunder58, the Bat pool has No Soap sign that is very faded. I will renew. It's not a tub, people soak there all the times. Sorry

It's the BAT tub, not the BATH tub! No soap in it, please.

IIRC it was the first tub installed.

I don't do facebook, but I did come across the facebook Saline Valley Warm Springs public group and was amazed at the activity it gets. Perhaps someone with a facebook account could post the list of "rules" to that forum, maybe it'll help some. Looks like there are a bunch of people headed for the springs over Presidents day....
