It may sound expensive but they deliver. Hot mineral baths, one large and two smaller ones for couples. Nine whole regulation golf course in tip top shape. Pickle ball, tennis, swimming, yoga, star gazing, it goes on. Sites are not pushed up against each other and have mature landscaping. Our two labs loved the two dog parks and the wash station. We plan to go back every year. - solson860

About as nice a RV Park you can find. Full hookups, pull through site across from golf course. Nice spacing between sites. Loved the small town of Borrego Springs. Only negative for us was spotty WiFi. - smitty12

This park has changed ownership and no longer deserves the historical high ratings. There are a few planned activities and the new owners have added charges for activities that used to be gratis. For example, it now cost five dollars for each water aerobics session, yoga, pickle ball, etc. The plastic picnic tables, for the sites that have one, are badly deteriorated by the bright sunlight and are patched together with duct tape. The concrete surfaces around the swimming pool and hot tubs are badly eroded and unsightly. Four of the laundromat machines are out of service as well as some of the dryers. It's a shame to see a once great RV resort go downhill like this and I hope that the new owners come around to restoring the facility to first class. - NW Snowbirds

Bathrooms and clubhouse completely redone and are excellent. Wifi is excellent in clubhouse but occasionally spotty in park itself. Sites are very spacious. - Robertg7

We loved our stay here and have reserved for Mar 2017. This park's new owners have renovated completely: great restrooms, clubhouse, pool, and great wifi as did not have to use our wifi extender. Only about two miles from town of Borrego Springs, 90 minutes to Temecula, 60 minutes to Palm Springs. - Robertg7

Cute little park with many full timers. We had some troubles with the fees. We were charged $5.00 per day for electricity and there was no hot water in the shower, which is why we stopped instead of boondocking. Made us pretty mad; they were having a temporary problem; would have appreciated knowing that beforehand. No TV. The manager is the nicest person to deal with thru email, etc., and was kind enough to send us a $6.00 refund for the electricity charge and the lack of hot water in the showers. She is a doll. - saturn7

The Oasis is a small, clean, quiet place to stay in an RV, in the middle of a beautiful desert, yet close to restaurants, Anza Borrego Desert State Park, the Ocotillo Wells off-road area, and the Spring wildflower bloom. The RV sites have water and electric and, being in town, VZ and Sprint Internet broadband can be received. The management is pleasant and accommodating. The Oasis closes for the summer, and has many regular bookings, so check for availability. - Old China Books

Plenty of space, wide and long enough. Check in pleasant--they give you cookies. Showers nice with room to get dressed, hot water. Two pools. - ClayLady

Had a reservation for a pull-thru site during the desert super bloom. Traffic heavy in area. Park is clean and well maintained. Nice pool & hot tub. Staff friendly and helpful. Had pizza at the restaurant on-site & it was very good. Restaurant hours vary during the week. Have been here before and will return. - Bud H

We stayed 5 days and found this location to be a wonderful. The grounds were very well maintained. The showers were clean but very dated, and the sites were somewhat level (we did need a pad under the passenger-side wheels). The site we were assigned (118) was just a little tight when the awning was fully extended. During our stay, the wind was a little strong and since this is the desert, our patio mat was covered with sand. Sand is the base for sites and the roads are paved and very good condition. A restriction was placed on outdoor lights so to not create 'light pollution" to hinder star gazing, that was very acceptable. We didn't notice excessive party animals, was quite quiet. WiFi was acceptable but cable TV was pathetic, so we used our satellite dish. Because of the trees used as windbreaks, it was a little difficult to align our portable satellite dish.
The office staff was very courteous and helpful. There is a saloon and restaurant on site. Their menu is very small and the meals we received were good. Be advised, these are closed on Tuesday and Wednesday. An on-site laundromat is available and also used by the locals.
Overall, we would most definitely stay here again. Over the 5 days, we saw all there is to see in Borrego Springs. We've been there, done that and got the T-Shirt! - SD75mac

We love this park. The sites are big with easy access. Our site was long enough for our 5th wheel and truck and a visitor. (We did unhook to play tourist.) Each site has a big fire ring with a hinged heavy-duty grate where one could cook if desired. Each site has a picnic table. There are desert bushes between sites that give privacy. It is quiet. It is near Borrego Springs. One must drive around to see the sculptures in the desert. If there has been rain, the wildflowers are spectacular. Last year we saw the "super bloom." This year there were virtually no flowers, but the desert's starkness is soothing. There is a market in nearby Borrego Springs if needed. - ClayLady

Anza-Borrego Desert State Park is one of the largest state parks in the country. It's a desert lover's paradise. Beautiful scenery, great hikes, abundant wildlife. This is one of our favorite campgrounds. There are three sections, one with full hookups, the other two dry. The full hookup sites are all pull through and have full sun. The dry sites are mostly back in, and have shade ramadas over the picnic tables. The entire electric system throughout the campground appeared to be brand new. Roads are paved, in good condition, and big rig friendly. Our site (29), and all of the sites along the road next to it, had the hookups on the patio side. The site was still nice, because it had more privacy than the sites in the middle of the loop, but it was weird having the hookups right in the middle of our "patio." Spacing between sites is spacious. Some of the sites in the old part of the campground (the highest numbered sites) were pretty much by themselves. Some of the signage is aging, and we initially had trouble finding our site because the sign was unreadable. The campground overlooks the valley and the town of Borrego Springs, so cell service is solid. - AnnP

This is one our favorite California State Parks, with great views of the desert and surrounding mountains, from every RV site. The sites are spacious and fairly level, although some are sloped in the front. The park just upgraded the full-hookup sites to 50 amp. We enjoy walking on the trails and biking through the park. They have a great visitor center and lots of hiking in and around the park. Verizon cell service is good. - Hitch2go

I'm not sure how this place made it to R V Park Reviews. It is not an RV Park. It is not even BLM property. It is private property owned by the mining company that is no longer working the area. Having said that, this place was perfect for us. We do like to 'Dry Camp". Be aware. There are NO SERVICES. Users of this land respected the spaces. It was not crowded. It was clean. The ground was hard packed sand, flat and level. The scenery is spectacular as it is situated on a bit of a bluff. Nearby Borrego Springs has limited services but enough so you don't have to leave the area to shop. There are lots of BLM areas around but we feel this is the best place to stop. We would return in a heart beat. - Rollin Ollens

Rockhouse Trail (also known as Rockhouse Road) is an area of dispersed camping in Anza-Borrego State Park. This is an easily accessed FREE boondocking area off S22 and about a 15 minute drive into Borrego Springs. If you like desert scenery and a degree of solitude and can do without all the amenities that come with standard campgrounds, this is the place for you. There's room for lots of rigs and you can set up close to a neighbor or far apart, whatever suits you and your neighbor's fancy. Any size rig will do fine here as long as you're careful - some tracks can be sandy. Be aware that there are NO services here, not even trash dumpsters. Come in with a full fresh water tank and empty holding tanks. Be a conscientious camper and pack it in and pack it out. Ground fires are not permitted here, but you can have a fire in a metal container of some sort. We had good cell reception with AT&T. After your stay at Rockhouse you can dump your tanks, fill fresh water and take showers at Palm Canyon Campground near the Visitors Center in the park proper by paying the $10 day use fee. - BruceandKathyWA

We stayed here for 7 nights in the "dry camping" area (87, 88). The sites are spread apart nicely and it is very quiet at night when we were there. No street lights and you can see the stars/moon easily. The coyotes were out in force in the evenings and early morning singing to us. The staff (mostly volunteers) were very nice and very informative on the wildlife and vegetation. There is a cement path to the Visitors Center that was about a ½ mile walk... but well worth the walk through the sage and cactus. The Visitors Center was amazing with many movies of the area. This is our second year here and we will be back again next year. The late spring/summer/early fall is not the time to come here because of the heat. We enjoyed 60-high 70 degree weather with a sprinkle of rain (very light) on one of the days. This campground is well worth the stay. - Lee Smith

In Anza-Borrego Desert State Park. Not actually in Borrego Springs but only about a beautiful 15 minute drive away. Two hiking trails located right outside the gate with some wonderful desert scenery. 27 sites on 10 acres within a grove of Tamarisk trees. Hot showers which you need quarters to use. Restrooms/showers were very clean. Rangers were very friendly. There is a table, shade ramada and a fire pit/grill at each site. Sites are asphalt with dirt surround for tent use. - User1132

Very nice park with reasonably sized sites, friendly personnel, super clean and well-maintained. The only 'ding' here is absolutely no Verizon service, and no convenient grocery stores. There are two markets in Borrego Springs, about 16 miles away, with limited groceries. - Katy29

Very friendly, helpful owners and staff. Great showers/restrooms. Sites are wide and deep with shrubbery in between for privacy. New pool will be excellent when ready by May 1st or sooner. A bit out of the way with town of Borrego Springs about 20 miles away. Seven pound bag of ice ($3) available on site. Only downside: wifi limited to 4 hours max per day with absolutely no streaming. After 4 hours system cuts you off till next day. But, we drove to the library in town (excellent 24/7 wifi) and were on-line and streaming. - Robertg7

Very relaxing park. Off-road vehicles are not allowed to drive through the park, keeping the dust down and keeping it quiet.
The sites are well maintained. Each site is raked after a guest leaves, making it appealing and welcoming for the next arrival.
We stayed here as a base for visiting the metal sculptures in Borrego Springs which is a 15 minute drive away.
We aren't desert people, but this place was very welcoming and relaxing. - Navy RV Traveler

The price is right. Pool was kind of cold, but I swam in it once, my kids several times. Walking distance to a store and a beer bar. Friendly staff invited us back for a big July 4th weekend bash they do. We would come back next desert season. Manager said there were some plans to improve a few outdated areas of the park. The park is 45 years old, but is comfortable. No playground, but lots of kids enjoyed the pool. - Dave from California

Great camp for the price. Dirt parking. Nice and level. Good layout if you want to camp with a few friends close to each other. Easy walk to a market and the "Iron Door", a beer bar. Friendly to off-roaders. Pool was freezing cold, but my kids did not mind. We stay here once or twice a year. Usually don't need reservations. Lots of spaces even during peak season. - Dave from California

Update on this campground. We have stayed here several times and overall it is a nice park with a friendly staff. This trip, we discovered that there is a shooting range about 600 yards behind the park. Either that or some red necks that shoot what sounds like a cannon. So, if you don't mind 2-3 hours of gunshots during the day, this is a nice place to stay. - jl2000

Drove through this park last winter and decided to stay over Memorial Day weekend. What a gem this place is. The facilities are in overall great shape and kept clean with multiple restroom facilities throughout. The are big-rig friendly and sites vary from pull throughs with about 8 ft. between adjacent sites to back-ins around the perimeter of the park. Utilities are ok , water pressure is between 35-38lbs, utility pads are well maintained. The park is quiet with no road noise from County Road S-2. There is a small pool, several pavilions, basketball court and a community center. It is equestrian friendly with outdoor corals on the east side. Pet-friendly, lots of places to walk the dog. Wildlife abounds here with coyotes, roadrunners, jackrabbits, many species of birds and even some native ringtail cats. If you have a 4WD then there is plenty to do. Jeep trails abound in this area with plenty of fun drives and cool history. Within 30 min of Borrego Springs and Ocotillo Wells, this makes for a great base camp. The park employees are really friendly and make great sandwiches at the general store and deli. We plan on returning in the late fall. - jl2000

The park is real nice overall with beautiful facilities for rallies and horse groups who use the parks. Had great places to walk our dog too. The actual RV parking spots were a bit lacking with just the natural surface as the parking surface. the bushes were out of control and others were dead and needed to be removed. The full hookups were adequate. The park wifi was totally nonexistent in the spot we were in and the cell service was not available; all of which could be a good thing if you totally want to get away totally. We did enjoy our time here and would return. - Kent and Margaret
