Paradise Springs...A History

Our History

Paradise Springs is 100 acres located in the heart of the National Forest off of Highway 41 between Oakhurst, a beautiful mountain community and world renown Yosemite National Park, on Road 632, called Sky Ranch Road, near the Historic Giant Redwoods, Nelder Grove and Fresno Dome. Paradise Springs was originally a logging camp in the early 1900s. Eureka Springs Park was established in the late 60’s for a recreational Christian camp and Resort that operated for many years. The property was almost forgotten, except for a few families that were using the camp. Today you can see the remains of the logging camp in the form of large tree stumps that still remain on the property, and a few original cabins remain through the forest as a reminder of the past.

On July 12, 2001, two families came together and saw the beauty and potential of what it once was and what it could be, and Paradise Springs was born. At the present time Paradise Springs has refurbished three cabins and one large lodge known as the “Villa”, which includes a large commercial kitchen, a rock fireplace with seven bedrooms upstairs, that sleeps 20 people. In addition there is a large meeting hall called the “Bella Pavilion” which was the original Chapel, with a one bedroom suite upstairs. Currently, Paradise can sleep 50 comfortably. The other cabins are all unique and are custom decorated, rustic but elegant.

Paradise Springs is unique for the abundance of natural spring water, which provides the property with four spring fed ponds and a pure spring water system which flows to all the buildings. The spring water has been tested by Twining Laboratories and has gone through a very extensive testing and has produced findings that the water is a very high quality of purity. The property sits one mile high in elevation surrounded by a majestic forest with a variety of pine trees, cedars and oaks, and the air is pure and clean. The serenity and beauty is over whelming and the quiet of nature is something to experience. Pictures do not do this site justice, and the personal experience is really breath taking.

Location of this property is one hour from Fresno and 15 to 30 minutes to quality eating establishments, recreational facilities, antique & collectible shopping, art galleries, museums, golf, historic train, Bass Lake and Yosemite National Park. Paradise Springs is the ideal location for vacation getaways, friends & family reunions, weddings, group retreats, meetings and more. At this time the families wish to share this wealth of nature and property to you and your families, who would enjoy Paradise Springs, “A Secret Place”.
