Camping at Anza Borrego Desert State Park


There are plenty of places here at
Anza-Borrego Desert State Park to camp three of your main options are going to
be developed campgrounds, primitive camps and backcountry camping. Because
developed campgrounds have more amenities they do require a fee. If
you’re going to camp at Borrego Palm Canyon, Horse Camp or Tamarisk Grove you
must make a site-specific reservation at least two days in advance on ReserveCalifornia.com. If you plan on visiting the southern end of the park Bow Willow
campground does not require any reservations but still requires a fee.
For those of you looking for a little less amenities, primitive camping may be
for you. There are eight different primitive camps located all throughout
the park and most of them do not require a fee. For those looking for a more
secluded experience, backcountry camping might be more your style. Backcountry
camping does not require any fees or permits. You may park anywhere that is
one vehicle lengths off the dirt roads, but please do not trample over any
vegetation or drive over geologic features. Ground fires are not permitted
anywhere in Anza-Borrego Desert State Park. A metal ring or container must be
used for all campfires. There are no metal containers provided a primitive
camps or in the backcountry, so plan to bring your own container and firewood
and remember to pack out the cooled ashes when leaving. For more details
about amenities at our developed campgrounds and primitive camps, please
