Date of Stay:

+ 7 paved pull through in B section, level side to side and front to rear [PT in A section in 2013 was notably unlevel]; width was quite good; many trees, and even more grass; cable available; did not try the Wi-Fi. - 3 elec marginal [voltmeter at edge of red with space heater and hott rodd on]; pricey at $56. This is a nice park, being in LA [if you have a level site], but you pay for the location.

Date of Stay:

+ 8 This is one of the best RV parks extant: small, family owned and operated, friendly, clean, constantly maintained, with restrooms and laundry that sparkle. Sites are dirt, but level front to rear and side to side; the park is quiet, with lots of trees and privacy hedges; and the price - $25 - is exceptional - 2 Elec is marginal [voltmeter at edge of red with space heater and hott rodd on], no cable, free wi-fi is erratic, cell phone works only at the office. We will always stay here on our trips to the desert. Note that Leapin' Lizard is in Ocotillo Wells, not Borrego Springs, which is 20 miles away.

Date of Stay:

+ 7 paved sites are super wide and level front to rear and side to side; the park is quiet, nicely treed with great walking paths - 3 no pull throughs; E & W only [but a dump]; no cable, no wi-fi, no laundry. We would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

+ 6 paved sites are level front to rear and side to side; elec is OK [voltmeter at 110 with space heater and hott rodd on]; noise from street is not objectionable; park is within walking distance to supermarket, hardware, pharmacy; and some restaurants - 4 no bathrooms or laundry; office only open from noon to 6 M-F; sites are narrow with minimal privacy hedges; no rigs older than 12 years allowed; no cable; free wi-fi is spotty, as is maintenance We do like being able to walk to shopping and restaurants.

Date of Stay:

+ 5 gravel/dirt sites are level side-to-side; elec OK [voltmeter at 110 with space heater and hott rodd on]; quiet; extensive sand dunes are close - 5 no cable, wi-fi is Tengo [$]; no trees or privacy hedges; park is run down: fences are falling, trash overflowed the dumpster; overpriced at $56. We plan to try another park next time to see if a nicer park overcomes having ready access to the dunes.

Date of Stay:

+ 9 Sites are paved, level, and adequately wide; park is nicely treed and quiet [a "levee" shields it from the sights and sounds of nearby hwy 101]; park has cable, LPG, and wi-fi is free and works. - 1 Elec is fair [voltmeter at edge of red with space heater and hott rodd on] We plan to stop at Betabel every time we head south on hwy 101.

Date of Stay:

We stayed here for three weeks so the $50 reflects the weekly rate, the single night rate is $60, so the park is pricey. Even so, we enjoyed our stay. Gave it a +8 because the staff was courteous, our site was wide and could have but one neighbor [not two or three], thus we had a view of the trees along the interior road; and the electric was notably sufficient. Gave it a -3 because we had to use a stack of three levelers in front [none, tho, side-to-side]; the freeway noise was noticeable, but not enough to disturb our sleep; the sewer connection was 6" to 7" above the ground; and the Tengointernet connection, though free for a month with a coupon from the park, required reregistration every three to four days. Our biggest complaint [and the reason we did not rate the park 8] was the trash: two large dumpsters and a recycle bin were constantly overflowing. Fortunately, they are in a separate building so we did not have to look at the mess.

Date of Stay:

+ 8 Paved pull through; quiet, which is surprising considering how close the park is to Hwy 101. Toured the mission which was well worth the time. -2 Downside: electricity low; needed leveling blocks in front.

Date of Stay:

+7 Gravel pull through on the upper level; electric was good. Usual wind, but no problem. Nice walk on the dunes, which extend to the ocean. -3 Downside: needed levelers in front, the price included a $3 “resort” fee, and the laundry is unacceptable.

Date of Stay:

+9 Smooth, dirt back-in; tamarisk trees on both sides provide good privacy. The camp hosts are friendly and helpful, and the park is very well kept, especially the restrooms. The current owners have owned the park for 16 years, and their pride of ownership shows. Very pleasant walk “out back” on desert property almost to the dirt airstrip which the owner uses to land his plane! -1 Downside: needed leveling blocks in front, and some may object to having to walk a short distance to the office for cell phone service.

Date of Stay:

+7 Concrete pull through; level with an orange tree on one side. The manager is the best camp host of all: friendly, helpful, and a great sense of humor, plus she bakes goodies every morning. She introduced us to a park employee who is followed by a roadrunner whenever he runs the tractor. So we got up early enough the following morning to watch it happen. It took a while for the runner to show, but show he did and indeed followed the employee wherever he drove the tractor. There is a social hour and campfire every day at 4 pm. Rangers from Anza Borrego State Park lead 4wd trips in Anza Borrego for those who like that great fun. -3 Downside: the very noticeable noise from Hwy 86

Date of Stay:

+8 concrete back-in; level [front sloped slightly, but no need for leveling blocks]; quiet; site wide enough to pull the Jeep along side the motorhome; far enough away from I-10 to be rather quiet -2 Downside: no pull throughs, a little pricey.

Date of Stay:

+ 7 asphalt pull through; sites are wide with lots of grass between sites and on play areas, making for a nice walking area. -3 Downside: We stayed here twice on this trip, to and from home. The first pull through was level side-to-side, but front noticeably low, so that leveling blocks were needed. Plus on that weekend, noise from dragsters was loud but fortunately only for about 3 seconds per drag. On the second weekend, a different pull through was so unlevel side-to-side, three layers of leveling blocks were needed.

Date of Stay:

+ 7 Asphalt pull through; shrubs in between sites, level [front sloped slightly, but no need for leveling blocks]. A small park with very accommodating managers. -3 Downside: sites are narrow, electric outlets are old; shrubs not high enough for good privacy

Date of Stay:

+8 Concrete pull through, level [front sloped slightly, but no need for leveling blocks], quiet, some trees, electricity good. -2 Downside: far too many crows, there is no pleasant place to walk; a little pricey
