3 Reviews of Tamarisk Grove - Anza Borrego Desert State Park
Four tamarisk trees

Hardly a grove but by desert standards it must be. If you get there when noone else is around there are a couple tamarisks you can park under the canopies of for some shade. Rolling hills to explore and abandoned washes.

Anza-Borrego campground with primitive cabins and tent sites

Tamarisk Grove Campground is about 20 minutes south of Borrego Springs. It sits next to the highway but there’s minimal traffic so it isn’t terribly loud. There are tent sites as well as primitive cabins. Each site has a fire ring and table. There are also flush toilets and paid showers. There is no potable water at this campground - be sure to bring your own. The cabins are simple structures with platforms for sleeping. There are no amenities in the cabins - no electric, no water, no mattress, no linens, etc.

The campground is across the street from both the Cactus Loop and Yaqui Well trail heads. We recommend the short Cactus Loop hike over the Yaqui Well hike. Go at sunset to catch the cholla cacti backlit by the sunset.

Nice Location

Tamarisk is a nice campground in a central location. It's about halfway between downtown Borrego Desert and Julien, there are some nice hikes nearby like the Cactus Loop. Nice showers and bathrooms. I camp Anza Borrego often and really like this campground to get away from the crowds. Also, this is where my husband and I were camping when he proposed to me at Kenyon Overlook.
