The Springs offers an RV resort along with a 9-hole golf course, mineral spas and pool, tennis courts, amphitheatre, dog areas (at least 4 fenced areas), small playground, and wellness center for those much needed massages after a long hike. It sits amidst the mountains and desert of the Anza Borrego State Park area and has lots of palm trees and green grass (at the expense of lots of water). It is a beautiful environment tucked inside an RV park. You will either love it or hate it, just depends on your desire for social activities, amenities, and spaciousness.
We stay here once in awhile especially when having house (RV) guests. It makes for easy facilities when hosting grandchildren with the pool, playground, laundry facilities, showers, etc. One stop shopping is what I call it! And we love a long soak and a swim after a long day hiking in the desert.
And if you are a golfer then you don’t have to go far to get to the course and play a round (or play around).
The best sites (or the favorites) are, as usual with many RV parks, those with a view of either the fairway, the mountains, the water or those on the end of a row.
The Springs has expanded over the years and some of the newer sites are much larger and wider. The resort even offers trailer rentals and soon, cabin/tiny house rentals. Our personal site preference is for the sites 912-922. Not only are there sites wide and back up to the fairway (watch out for golf balls) but they have utility hookups on each side so you can either back in or pull in, whatever is best for your rig to optimize your view. We wish all parks would offer that. Sites 901-910 are all pull-thrus which provide a nice fairway/mountain view in the forward direction. Sites 811-819 are very long. Sites 411-415 are on the fairway and are double wide.
Even though we made reservations months ago (for the week of Christmas with the grandkids), the premium sites are usually reserved already. Some of our friends said they have a site reserved here for a few years out. Geez…we can hardly plan today much less a few years in advance! So we made a reservation and took what they had and when we arrived we successfully got a different site with a view. Thank you! But we noticed the park was less than half full. But come January things will change.
RV Park: The Springs at Borrego RV Resort
Location: Borrego Springs, California
Cost: $60 (plus electric if stay 7 days or more)
Comments: A well maintained RV park with lots of amenities and great views.
And should the park be full or if you just prefer to dry camp and also save some money yet have access to all the amenities they try their overflow area. Not only is there an area to wash your RV and/or car, there are approximately 15 marked areas where you can dry camp and have wonderful views.
One last item. One of the unique things you will see here is the signature of the sites by “whoever” rakes your site. Thanks to the camp hosts for spicing things up a bit.
