Desert by the Sea

1 site · RV, Tent1 acre · Salton City, CA
Welcome to this scenic 1/3 acre desert campground in Salton City, with panoramic views of the Salton Sea. The soft sand and coarse rocks create a primitive camping experience near majestic natural attractions. Nearby destinations include the beaches of the Salton Sea, Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, Joshua Tree National Park, and the stargazing haven of the International Dark Sky Park. The campground has a remote, rustic feel, with the nearest neighbor 1/4 mile away. There is no shade cover on the property, so bring your own shelter from the elements. Keep pets leashed and supervised, as local wildlife may roam the area. Street parking is recommended for 2WD vehicles on Coral Sea Ave. Drive slowly and carefully over rocks. The soft ground requires 4WD vehicles with high clearance and aggressive tires for access. Air down tires for traction. Site amenities are primitive, so come prepared for a peaceful desert retreat. Generators allowed from 8am-8pm. No electric/water hookups or restrooms on site. Trash & Waste must be packed out. Leave no trace behind. The owners are not responsible for theft, pets, belongings, vehicle damage or injuries. Have a wonderful time exploring this unique desert landscape! Stay safe and respect this beautiful habitat.
