Desert camping is all about enjoying the scenery, taking long walks and revelling in the night sky (and the occasional campfire!).  But sometimes we want a little more, so we’re always working on fun things to do around the park. This list will keep growing as your suggestions pour in!

The pool area with a shade cover

Pool & Lounging Area

What hits the spot better than a dip in the pool on a hot summers day? Yeah, pretty much nothing is better than that! Bring your towels and get ready for refreshment! Swing by the general store and pick up some cool drinks & snacks and you have the recipe for a perfect afternoon. Who says camping can’t be a little refreshing?

Horseshoes in the sand around a stake

Horseshoe Pits

What kind of campground would we be if we didn’t have horseshoes? Well of course we have horseshoes! The recreation section of our park is just waiting for you and your friends to come throw the shoes in this timeless camping & picnic tradition.


Want to hit the trail and do some hiking or take a ride on your horse? The Anza Borrego State Park is literally on the other side of our fences! Enjoy the beauty of protected trails and even nearby Native American petroglyphs! Trail lovers rejoice! We have all the land you could ever want to enjoy with those two feet.
