Day Trip to Borrego Springs

Driving Information: Kevin and I drove our jeep wrangler to Borrego Springs, California looked for camping spots. We drove S22 to Borrego Springs. This road has a 8% grade.  When we camp in Borrego Springs we will be driving our Tiffin Allegro Open Road 33ft gas motorhome and towing a Jeep Wrangler. On the way home we drove the S3 to S2 towards Julian then onto 79S this was a much better road for us when we bring our motorhome with a toad.

Nice view on 79S to Borrego Springs but the 8% grade isn't good for us

Peg Leg- I'm told this is a great beginner boondocking spot. It looks like a nice community of boondockers its a very small area. This is the free book-swap mailbox. I saw DVD's and puzzles for swapping too. :)

Peg Leg- I’m told this is a great beginner boondocking spot right off Peg Leg Road. It looks like a nice community of boondockers. It’s a flat area with several RV’s close together.

Rockhouse Canyon- we liked this boondocking spot. Its spacious with level camping spots and fires are allowed in a container, its near Calacite Mine & The Slots

Metal Sculpture- These are incredible. This artist very talented.

Galetta Meadows has the popular metal sculpture- This artist is very talented. The spots I saw for boondocking didn’t look very level but we had good At&t cell service.

Anza-Borrego State Park is $35 a night with full hookups. We could fit our 33footer in the spots with no problem but $35 is too much for us. The visitor center staff told us about Yaqui Pass.  It looks like a small parking lot outside of town surrounded by hills but no cell service here. If you don't mind no cell service this is a nice place with a small 1 mile hike next to the camping area.

  1. We drove over to Borrego Springs in our Jeep from San Deigo to decide on a route, as well. There isn’t a good route from there. We ended up coming across the 8 and up. It almost doubled our mileage but made the journey more comfortable with a 40 ft MH and tow. We boondocked before and after our stay at the State Park. We park beyond Peg Leg but also beyond Rockhouse Road. There is a Flash Flood sign just before the road in to the area. It is the furthest point out that you see RV’s. Tons of flat level areas and if you stay fairly close to the road, there cell and data service. We are parked there now, as I write. Be careful of your site in the SP. Several in the front section are actually hills…not good! Enjoy your time here:)
