Stayed here for first time for a weekend. We prefer more rustic camping generally but came with friends and were pleasantly surprised. The camp sites are more spacious than I expected and have mature landscaping between sites. The grounds are immaculate!!!
The staff is very nice and three of our party enjoyed the 9-hole golf course which is in excellent condition.
Interesting area, very artistic fallout apoliptic feel. This is a free dispersed area off the access dike of Bombay Beach along the Salton sea. This place is a man made disaster ghost town that has been mostly abandon with everything else that went to the wayside of the Salton sea situation. Bombay beach has become an art creating place with lots of installments and really interesting creations of art. Would highly recommend checking it out even if it is just a day trip. There was two RVs on the beach when I was last there. Not sure how safe this place is, has a slab city vibe and not far from slab city. I would definitely stay here over slab city. Not sure how the locals feel about RVs camping out on the beach of Bombay. Definitely check out the art surrounding all the homes of Bombay. Nothing else like it. Feels like freedom in a post apocalyptic society. I like that it has become a place for artists. All the people I talked to there were friendly.
Ok I went here hoping to spend more than 24 hrs and explore and what not but I stuck out like a sore thumb with a military truck and decent travel trailer. Theirs TOOO much need in this community (comparable to skid row if your familiar but in the desert) This is more than just DISPERSED camping where you pull over and kick back. Its literally survival at all times because that’s what THEY are doing in the desert. I could not sleep with all the evening noises and people tweaking/high on something walking around. That all said Salvation Mountain is pretty amazing and safe due to its state protected and at entrance into the Slabs so it’s well traveled. So much LOVE went into it. Do drive around the outskirts of the slabs some too and you’ll find plenty of random desert art that Slabs City is known for.
Very spacious resort in the center of a gorgeous 9 hole golf course/driving range. Check-in packet was prepared & ready along w/an escort to our space, which has level concrete parking and picnic pad with table. 50/30/110, water, sewer, wifi and cable included. Catch and release fishing pond, pool, hot mineral spas, tennis, lawn bowling, big and little dog parks. The stargazing is amazing! Very clean and well maintained. Quiet respectful guests. Great area to bike. You can drive to the sculptures, Salton Sea, downtown Borrego and Julian.. you Will be driving through curvy mountain ranges to get to this destination. Stayed 1/4-8/2021
We rolled in after dark and found a spot super easy that was secluded and perfect for tent camping. We had a nice hike in the morning before heading back to Julian for pie :)
Went before Thanksgiving weekend for a few nights. SUPER busy over the weekend and emptied out by Sunday night. Basically camping anarchy - people setting up all over the place - but you can only start fires in the provided fire ring. Some sites are exposed others super secluded. Sound definitely carries over the little valley, but people kept it low key by 10pmish.
Arrive early to get a nice site.
Great hikes that start right from the campground.
Ended up here since CA closed all state campgrounds (because camping spreads COVID?) We were the only tent campers there. Lake is super lovely, clean bathrooms with showers. Sites have charcoal grills, but no ground fires allowed.
Unfortunately there is a very loud and semi-smelly cow farm next door. I was fine with earplugs but I wouldn't stay there without them.
We are novice campers - didn't have sand tent pegs so with a little wind on the day we arrived it took some time to find the right site for us which really was only after the wind died down after 4pm. Picture a few frustrated moments here while wind picked up tent and wife….. :)
Lesson learned, take sand capable tent pegs and set up site later in the day and not on a nice hill.
Once the wind died down we found a site and settled in for a lovely night.
Awesome caves and walking around the area. Spectacular must do trip when around the area.
