Drakesbad is a wilderness resort inside the National Park at the end of a gravel road.  The setting is superb, in upper Warner Valley forest at the meadows edge.

The swimming pool has piped in water from Drakesbad Hot Spring.

Meals are provided.  Horseback tours are available.

Here you can experience the wild country in a setting like backpackers routinely have for no cost, but you don't have to walk in to get there.

May be mosquitos in especially June-early July.
