It lies within the treaty territory of the Western Bands of the Shoshone Nation of Indians (Timbisha Band of Western Shoshone Indians). It is located in the northeastern section of Deep Springs Valley, 22 miles (35 km) east of Bishop, 2.6 km (1.6 mi) north of Soldier Pass, and 6.4 km (4 mi) southwest of Chocolate Mountain (formerly Piper Mountain), at an elevation of 5194 feet (1583 m).
Deep Springs College is located in Deep Springs Valley, although not at the site of the springs. The Deep Springs post office operated from 1881 to 1883 and from 1920 to 1953. The springs, after which the town was named, are now called Buckhorn Springs.
