Rockhouse Trail – Borrego Springs, California
Clark Dry Lake in Borrego Springs
We visit Anza Borrego State Park in southern California every winter and vary where we stay. We enjoy boondocking off of Rockhouse Trail and this winter we found the area to be the least crowded we have seen since much of the area was closed off 2 years ago. Yay!
Not many people here

We like to hike the 10 miles (round trip) from our site over to an oasis across Clark Dry Lake and back. It can be quite an arid hike with intense sun but we pack plenty of food and water and bask in the cool sand and shade at the oasis for awhile before our return hike back to the rig.

Clark Dry Lake really IS dry
The Oasis – trees, shade, and coolness
Returning from our 10 mile hike to the Oasis
And there is always the hike up the hill next to Rockhouse Trail and Peg Leg to have great views of the surrounding area and to find the rock snake!

Besides hiking we like to run into town to visit the fruit stands and the statues and just enjoy the ambiance of a cute small town.
Even the boondocking at Peg Leg is at the lowest we have seen at Borrego for the winter season
