21 Parks near Ocotillo Wells, California

We chose the Blu INN so we could store our trailer on site and just pull onto a spot when we traveled out on the weekends. The first weekend we decided to stay on the campground will be our last. We paid for a month of storage on the 1st and camped on a site for 4 days on the 15th. On day 3 we decided to eat the monthly storage fee and we pulled our property off the site completely. The owner of this property is arrogant and flat out rude. We had a guest come through the gate and they didn't check in as there are no signs at the gate to check in. The owner came around in his truck and was rude and belligerent to our guest; who actually had come to see the site with his father to potentially camp out for their next trip. He put his fingers in my guest face and my wife's face and warned them that it was private park and they better check in. About 10 minutes later another guest came in the site driving a Borrego Ambulance as he was on duty. He did not check in either and again the owner came in his truck, beer in hand, and warned my guests to check in. We spoke to the two other renters across from us and they had similar experiences with the owner the night before. In the morning I discussed the behavior with the attendant at the front desk and informed her we would not be camping or storing any longer at the Blu Inn. When we checked out the owner was sitting in the office and did not even attempt to discuss my concerns regarding his behavior with my guests and my wife. We respect the fact that as the owner he is trying to keep tabs on who is in the park for the safety of his guest, this is why we chose to camp there instead of in "the desert" but his arrogant, rude, obnoxious behavior was inappropriate. If I want that type of behavior I will take my chances camping out in the open rather than paying for it. The pool was freezing and cloudy, the jacuzzi was 80 degrees and you needed tokens to shower; which we didn't know until we were in the shower undressed. Not worth the money for a hookup and rude owner - madirain

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 Manager said there were some plans to improve a few outdated areas of the park.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

Great place in the middle of nowhere! Facilities and staff were great and the area is very quiet. This area is considered a dark sky area which is an added bonus. The grounds were impeccably kept and the spots were large and comfortable. We would stay here again. - Steve & Terri

Great park that is well maintained, from the bathrooms to the golf course it is first class. Borrego Springs maybe the most isolated area except Death Valley in California and Death Valley has better roads into it than Borrego. But once there the city is a return to the 70's not much has changed since then and it has charm of years past. The State Park is huge and takes days to see it all. Even if you do not play golf you will enjoy The Springs. This is not an overnight stop but a resort to be enjoyed, just to far off the beaten path for an overnighter. - sjones

I have stayed here for 7 years in a row usually the last two weeks of the year and sometimes in February when the desert is in bloom. My favorite park but you have to like the desert and a small town where the closest movie theater is 70 miles. - Dennis T.

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 Managers are what made this experience a good one for us. Their attitude and willingness to let us stay without a reservation during the busiest season even though we had to move sites twice during the month was outstanding. The Park is clean and new laundry and clubhouse are almost finished. Location is great for riding your bike all around town. We made a reservation for the month of March next year. - User2417

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

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

If you want full hook-ups this is the place. Sites are narrow but we were next to the bath house so we had extra room. Good pull thru site with all hook-ups, worked well. Wi-Fi was good and cable TV was good. We spend several days because of friends in the desert camping. Site was level but the little stones got tracked into motorhome. We would stay again if in the area. - belanga

We hadn't planned to stay here, but due to a minor emergency while in Borrego Springs we needed to find an RV park with full hookups for a couple of nights and this what was available. The staff was helpful in finding us a site without a reservation, though we found the price to be surprisingly high for the very basic (sand/dirt), narrow site ($53 after Good Sam, before tax, during President's Day weekend). Our site was a pull-through and was plenty long, but quite narrow. We couldn't safely pull through to exit due to a diagonal tree blocking the front of the site. The back-in sites are only 30 amp and are even closer together, but not that much less expensive. The RV park is relatively small, but since it's adjacent to the hotel it has amenities like a pool, hot tub, and restaurant, as well as some shared fire pits in one area. Behind the park is a wide expanse of desert with some simple trails that were good for walking our dog... just watch out for the many sharp cactuses! The park is in a good location with most of Borrego Springs a short bicycle ride away. They offer free Tengo WiFi, which worked reasonably well for a while, then would go down for an hour or so, then work well for a while, etc. We had decent Verizon LTE and AT&T 4G signal, but both were pretty slow when we used them for data. - LifeRebooted

The Palm Canyon Campground is inside Anza-Borrego Desert State Park and only about a mile from the town of Borrego Springs, CA. The RV section has paved driveways and paved sites, widely spaced with 30amp power, water and sewer connections. The sites are fairly un-level but each site includes a fire ring and picnic table. There are restrooms and showers available and hiking trails leading directly from the campground. - Coopsecondact

We tried to make online reservations for Borrego Palm Canyon Campground, but all of the hook-up sites at Anza-Borrego Desert State Park have a 35 foot maximum length limit.
Why is this campground marked as "Big Rig Friendly?" - Navy RV Traveler

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 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

We made reservations to stay one week, but had to cancel one week before our arrival. Leapin' Lizard was very accommodating and refunded our entire week's payment. We greatly appreciate that level of service. - RaySc

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

This campground is under new ownership and they're completely re-modeled the entire place. There's even a new lodge that is beautiful! We've camped here a few times and it's always quiet and serene. We went on a few hikes that start right at the campground and head up into the canyons. There is always so much to see, and the view from the top of the hills is amazing! The night sky has so many stars too! It's a fun place to camp or stay in your RV with their western cowboy themed decorations. There are usually hikers from the Pacific Crest Trail staying here too. They have laundry, a nice clean pool, and even little cabins to rent if tents aren't your thing. There are shade trees on almost all the spots, so nice in the summer. It gets a little windy sometimes, so don't forget your tent stakes. We hope we can come back soon! - landing
