Classic Desert Campground

Can get super windy! Great over roading and hikes in this enormous state park. Come prepared for anything!

Desert! Windy! Wild!

Beautiful in a desert way. Can get super duper windy. Great off road hikes and scenery.

desert oasis

palm trees in the middle of the desert with water is just a short hike away. the campsites themselves are just on flat sand with cactus so beware. it is the desert so that's to be expected. this site feels more primitave than most others and I've never seen it busy but there are some great hiking trails and the sunset views are amazing. no dogs are allowed. Just a short drive away from the many desert statues in borrego springs.

Great weekend spot

I've camped here a couple of times. I come here mostly for the dark skies for astrophotography. It's a nice campground, clean bathrooms and showers. There's some nice hiking as well .

Nice, but huge and busy

This is a great campground to stay in the park when you plan ahead, it fills up fast though. Great hiking walking distance from your campsite, the Palm Oasis and the hike to the visitor center are great! I love camping here, I try to get out there at least twice a year.

Nice Clean Campground

We just hit the end of the season before it got too hot. It is often windy. We had hookups and used our AC every day. The palm canyon hike is really nice. The sites aren’t huge and it’s definitely desert camping. The bathrooms are clean.

Great amenities

This campground has great amenities and is very well run. Each site has a large fire pit, charcoal grill and a water spout near by. Bathrooms with flushing toilets and coin operated showers. They sell firewood if you get there before they leave for the day, around 5pm. During the cooler months it seems to fill up quickly so it’s best to make reservations ahead of time. Overall a great trip.


Great campsites. Large fire pits. Hiking was close also.

Borrego Palm Canyon Campground at Anza-Borrego State Park

Unexpectedly hot, with an elevation of only 775' above sea level. Tent & dry camping sites are well spaced (not so for the full hookup sites on the RV/north side). Very dark skies, with coyotes singing all night. Clean restrooms, clean sites, modern fire pits (deep and tall), and splintery creosote-treated shade covers. Beautiful views and many hiking trails. Best to make reservations.

Desert Heat

We went during the summer time so in with no surprise that we were able to just drive through the dozen open camp sites. It's almost like we had the deserted park all by ourselves. Easy access to hiking trails and lots of peaceful animals around the sites. Wonderful experience and amazing giant sculptures everywhere!
