A great place for Anza-Borrego Desert State Park camping is at the Borrego Palm Canyon Campground. Don’t let the vast 122 available campsites fool you, this campground books up fast. The campground amenities include drinkable water, restrooms and hot, coin-operated showers. Some sites offer full hook-ups. Borrego Palm Canyon campground favors smaller groups as each campsite may have up to eight people (including children). Keep in mind you’re camping in the largest state park in California in the desert. Stay hydrated and seek out shade under the ramadas.
Definitely get one of the ramada sites, which includes a wood structure, a picnic table or two, and a neat old corner fireplace. We pitched our tent outside of the ramada and used the space for eating and hanging out. Good educational info on the nature walk.
