Borrego Springs is one of my favorite desert places. Don’t miss the hot springs or hiking the palm oasis!

No Cell Service at all. So download music before hand if you want a soundtrack for your stay. OH and careful not to step on cactus flowers.

This campsite is very nice with new facilities ("thanks" to a flash flood a few years ago that wiped out all the old stuff). It's close to trailheads and the mountains block a lot of SoCal's light pollution for perfect night sky viewing. Perfect for someone like me that likes creature comforts.

Windy, only go if there was a lot of rain during the spring season to see some really nice desert blooms!
