Deep Creek here we come! I ain't hiking no stinking 7 miles to the springs. We are going to park at the Bowen Ranch 5.00 dollars per person. 2 miles or so to the springs & 930' of elevation!! Be sure to bring a change of clothes, plenty water, snacks, comfy walking/hiking shoes, hat & sunscreen.
Beware, there are nudists here! =)
Bowen Ranch is a private property and the owner expects you to pay $5.00 per person per day and $10.00 for overnight camping. If the owner does not come to the door there are some envelopes and pencil on the steps for you to deposit your payment in the slot on the wall. Then continue down the road for another 0.5 miles to the parking lot. You will see signs of "No vehicles beyond this point".

I posted directions under comment section. Zoom in on the map & you can see where to park.
#1 BLUE DRIVING ROUTE FROM THE NORTH (For 2wd) Park at the Bowen Ranch, pay $5 and you have a 1.5 mile gentle downhill hike through bland high desert scrub and then a .5 mile steeper portion, this section may give trouble to those who don't hike a lot. There is no shade so bring lots of water and wear sun protection.
No Plus ones unless approved!!
