I came here for New Year’s Eve because I’ve heard that many RVers are spending it here, boondocking. There is a large public land available for RVs, you can find it by the Rockhouse Trail. This year the area was scattered with RVs. There were many large groups but unfortunately, it was raining during the night so I was stuck in my RV. I spent two nights here dry-camping, the last night was so windy that it woke me up, I felt I will be blown away. Nature at its full force.
The little town has many restaurants, hotels, RV parks, and mini shopping malls. This is the time of the “snowbirds”, people from up North who are spending their winter in the area. The night lights in the town are reduced to minimal so on clear nights the sky is spectacular, you can see the milky-way.
One day I checked out the metal sculptures on Borrego Springs Road. It’s worth driving up and down the road and take pictures of these unique rusty metal sculptures. They were all over the place. If you have a four-wheel-drive vehicle it is the best!
There is also biking opportunities mostly on town bike lanes and hiking opportunities in the park. I would recommend first to go to the visitor center, the crew there are really nice and helpful, it will help to find the best hiking trails for you.
I spent one day at the campground with my RV. There are full hookups with water/sewer/electric which I loved after dry-camping for two days. The site was 18, right by the bathrooms, it wasn’t level but it was ok for one night. The price is also good, way cheaper than the State Parks by the beach. There are also tent sites at the back of the campground with tables and fire rings. The bathrooms were nice and clean.
I did not, however, have a good internet connection. Verizon was slow so was Sprint. I was not able to watch Netflix without major interruptions. The park does not have WiFi.
