“Amazing Park”

Reviewed Mar 11, 2017

Overall Rating

We didn't need to check in when we arrived, but the camp host was very friendly and helpful when we needed firewood. This is a well maintained gem in the Anza Borrego State Park. It's close to the town of Borrego Springs but you wouldn't know it. Amazing views of the mountains and desert make you think you're out in the wilderne... more

“Hike the Palm Canyon Trail! ”

Reviewed Mar 03, 2017

Overall Rating

Great place to setup for a couple of days. The hike up Palm Canyon Trail was the highlight of our stay. Our site (97) was across from a big group site with a bunch of teens on some kind of organized camping trip. They sang camp songs at night and made fun of my instagram sticker (@tin.can.fan) on my camper, but somehow we survived. Our... more

“Solid hospitality ”

Reviewed Mar 02, 2017

Overall Rating

You will not go wrong with this serviced campground, everything is well run and it's a great place to take a short break from BoonDocking. Full washrooms with showers, pull thru sites a little too close but it is a typical up and down campground, the scenery is around you on the horizon not in the park. Sunsets are better at the Rockho... more

“Pleasant”

Reviewed Feb 11, 2017

Overall Rating

Let me start by saying we are new at this. We arrived on a Wednesday without a reservation but were able to get a spot with water and a broken electric hookup which was fine with us. Facilities were clean. Long "2 minute" hot shower. Great views and hikes. Must hike The Slot!

“Our favorite camping in the desert ”

Reviewed Feb 10, 2017

Overall Rating

Of all of the places we stayed on our month long trip Anza Borrego is at the top of the list. We could have easily stayed for weeks! We stayed in two campsites during our visit and both were such different experiences. Our first 4 nights we're in the upper no-hookup section. We loved it there. We planned our whole trip around campsite... more

We stayed in the full hookup. It's listed as a pull thru but is a drive in. Was a little skeptical at first we were not sure we would fit. Camp host was very kind about it and said we could pull in at either direction we wanted. Once we got in camp set up all was good. We did the palm canyon hike, slot canyon and Galleta meadows. ... more

“Stayed in the No Hookups area, great experience”

Reviewed Apr 17, 2016

We stayed during the week (avoided the weekend rush) and stayed in the "no hookups" area. There the sites are spacious, clean, and delightful. There were flush toilets scattered throughout the campground area. The scenery was breathtaking. The rate we paid includes the Senior Discount. The staff was helpful. The hike up Palm Ca... more

“Beautiful State Park offering a perfect taste of Anza Borrego”

In our previous campground reviews, we have never given 5 stars toward an overall rating. This is our first...and surprisingly, it is a California State Park.

“Nice place to stay with hiking near by and biking to town!”

Reviewed Jan 31, 2015

Overall Rating

This is our second stay in the state park. While the registration says 35 ft is the maximum length, any size unit would fit. All sites are pull-thro and approximately 60 ft. The park is FHU with 30 amp electric. There is decent spacing between sites which are angled. Sites 1-25 are not very level. Many are severely sloped. Our s... more
