This article makes it sound like DCHS is property of the Bowen Ranch ( Bowen Ranch Hot Springs ). The Victor Valley Daily Press had an article about this today and it makes no mention of anyone washing down the river six miles. If they had been in the river for six miles they would all be dead. The information in the Daily Press article appears to indicate that these four individuals where camped in the vicinity of DCHS, and it sounds like thier camp was close enough to the river to have been flooded when the heavy rains hit. This sbsun article also states, " hiked into Bowen Ranch Saturday afternoon and set up camp ". It makes it sound like thier camp that got flooded was on Bowen Ranch property. The flooding of the camp occured down in the canyon, not at the Bowen Ranch. The sbsun article states, " Camping is illegal in the area ". Well that depends on what area your talking about. Overnight camping is illegal along Deep Creek, including within a mile on either side of the Creek. Other than that, camping IS legal in the USFS lands, and in the BLM lands that surround the Deep Creek " no camping " zone. At times fire hazard restrictions can close certain tracts of land to public use. The public has a number of ways to access DCHS for daytime use, and none of these involve crossing the 80 acres that is the private property of the Bowen Ranch. As far as I know, the Bowen Ranch toll operation is always open for business, even if Mike Castro isn't there. There is usually a can outside the old Bowen Building where visitors are supposed to put the toll money into. Maybe these campers didn't pay and thats why they where referred to in the sbsun article as " tresspassers ". If they paid, why would they be deemed as tresspassers?
