America's Backyard Travel Gems | Hidden Arizona Oasis & How to Get There

Updated: Oct 1, 2019

Summer temperatures bring tropic vibes with white-sand river gushing warm water and refreshing private coves! Sound refreshing? C'mon Mon, Enjoy Little Jamaica!





America's backyard hides little known gem, "Little Jamaica," in the small community of Littlefield, Arizona! The hidden gem commonly known as Desert Springs, Littlefield Springs, or our personal favorite "Little Jamaica" is a hot spot for Littlefield locals.


A 1/4 mile walk from trailhead to water open to a swimming hole over the water, waterfalls, and plenty of natural beauty. The walk is pretty slippery so we highly recommend waterproof shoes with a good grip.


Little Jamaica is located under the highway. You will hear noise from the highway.
