David and I just got back from a 4-day trip to Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, about 2-hour drive from the Palm Springs Area. It was a nice change from our current routines making it feel like a mini-vacation. This spring, the Anza-Borrego Desert is very green and wildflowers are blooming everywhere. The next two weeks will be the best time for maximum flowers…and, inevitably, the crowd.
To avoid the crowd, we did what full-time RVers do best…by going during weekdays. We arrived at the park campground on Sunday and left on Thursday. The Anza-Borrego Desert was beautiful and colorful. We took a few short hikes and drove around to see other parts of the park we haven’t seen. I’ll post about the hikes we did in separate posts.
If you haven’t read about our previous visit to Ricardo Breceda’s sculptures in Borrego Springs, you can read it here.
Wildflowers are what people come to Anza-Borrego Desert in spring to see. We were there about a week earlier than the peak bloom but the weather was nice and not too warm. I’m compiling photos of the wildflowers I took. They’ll be in a separate post as well. In the meantime, enjoy some of the photos below.
Anza-Borrego Desert State Park
There are lots to see and do in the state park. Here are some of places we went.
There are still many more things to do and places to see. We ran out of time and will have to come back again.
Borrego Palm Canyon Campground
We stayed in a non-hookup section of the state park campground. The campground facility was excellent even if we had to pay extra to shower. Each campsite had a very generous space. We weren’t right next to our neighbors. And the view was hard to beat. During busy times it’s best to reserve the campsite online (reservation fee applies) before you arrive. We did and still had to move our campsite once during our 4-day stay.
Please come back later for more of what we did in Anza-Borrego Desert. Or even better, subscribe to receive updates by email.
