Tecopa sits on the bare desert, a mile off State Route 127, between Baker and Shoshone, Tecopa Hot Springs is a seasonal trailer village, masquerading as a county park. South of the hot springs is a backroad junction with a little store and bar, and a few trailer homes. This is the "town" of Tecopa. The village of Shoshone, located a few miles north of Tecopa, has a motel, general store, and bar.

The springs feed two basic bathhouses -- one for women and another for men -- plus a private invalid pool. Across the road is a dusty trailer park, where snowbirds gather for the winter. In summer, the place is so blasted with heat that everyone goes away. But as November approaches, the first trailers arrive to set up residence for the winter.
