Great birding

We ended up here for one night in January and were so pleased with the experience. We stayed in the tent loop- grateful we brought along our chemical toilet, because the facilities were very very far! But- the nursing was amazing- we had a few roadrunners and thrashers that hung out in our campsite and dozens of small Birds with the bushes around.


Amazing place to come for the day but also perfect spot for camping. It’s breathtakingly beautiful.

It’s great

It’s so awesome

Disconnent from Reality😁

Hot spring campground in the Anza desert. Such a great place to come and reset from busy day to day hustle. Peaceful and clean, with cabins for those who dont tent or trailer camp.

Oasis in the Desert

Agua I was told by a park ranger is the jewel of the San Diego park system. The park is nesseled between two hills which act as a funnel for natural spring water. That spring water is used to feed three pools with one sulfur indoor which is around 106 degrees. It's the perfect place to relax. This is a perfect weekend escape from the city. There is no cell service. To get service you have to go to the cell phone lot 4 miles west at Vallecito campground.

Desert camping with a clean hot springs pool

This is a great campground in the middle of nowhere.  A lot of RVs are in the center and seem set up as full-timers, but along the perimeter are some great, tucked-away sites.  There are also a number of "cabins" in a row.  Not a ton of privacy, but they're clean cabins with the basics - a bathroom, sink, bedframe, table/chairs.  The best part is sitting out on the little deck.  Personally, I like cabins 5-7 the best.  

It can get a little noisy if a motorcycle gang comes around, but the hiking is nice.  There's a good trail right from the campground but stay on the path because the cactus will get you!!!

The hot springs pool is great and has adult-only hours at night which is fantastic.  

I've been there a few times now and it's always a fun getaway with a different feel than going to the mountains.


Good clean facilities

Fab place to camp. Great for kids and adults.

Fantastic. Campground for both kidss and adults. Plunty of hiking trails. Kids lobe riding there bikes. Pools for all sizes. Beautiful bathrooms ans showers.

One of the Best Campground in Southern California

2 outdoor pools and an indoor adult spa (102 degrees), RV sites with Power, Water and Sewer as well as tent sites. Flush toilets and hot/cold showers. This place is well maintained and the cleanest campground I have ever stayed at. Shuffleboard and Horseshoes courts, lots of hiking trails and things to see. The campground / pools are all fed from natural mineral springs. Pets are allowed within the campground and all sites have picnic table and fire-ring. Small store at the park entrance is great for the simply things you may have forgotten. They even have cabins available but they book up pretty fast. Rangers are all very friendly and helpful. Enjoyed my stay, I will be back.

Nice, but can be very crowded

This place use to be great when it wasn't as popular as it is now. But, still a nice place with natural hot spring showers/bathrooms/pool/hot tub and now cabins to rent. Last time I was there there was a big party next to my campsite and they were pretty drunk and loud. They were not polite or followed any rules even after they were told to keep it down. So, if you prefer a quiet camp site, this is NOT for you. A lot of large groups camp here and usually not respectful of others or nature for that matter.
