“Beautiful canyon dispersed camping”

There are lots of dispersed camping sites in Anza-Borrego but most are in the wide open windy desert. This spot is the complete opposite. The canyon is about 100 yards wide, maybe a mile long and it has about 4 distinct spots to park a small to medium size rig. This is the perfect base came for exploring this little slice of heaven.
Be aware that the canyon is also a wash so in the rainy season you will need to leave if an inch of rain was to fall but that is rare in Anza-Borrego DESERT State Park.

This is one of the best places we’ve stayed on our 3 month trip across the desert
