Campground of the Week: Anza Borrego Camping at Tamarisk Grove
“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.” — The Dyrt Camper Heather O. Camp Here
