Rockhouse Trail Borrego Springs

The area east of Peg Leg and north of S22 was taken over by Anza Borrego State Park in July 2015 which effectively means no  more boondocking in that area. But a small portion off Rockhouse Trail is still available. We watched the area for a few weeks after camping just off S22 by the road and also at the …

Palm Canyon Trail

Yes, we are back. I seem to be saying that a lot lately.  When you find a good thing it is difficult not to return. After spending a few weeks boondocking we headed into the state park campground for a week of pure luxury with full hookups.  We love this place and we love this site. Campground: Anza Borrego State …

Clark Dry Lake - Old Boondocking Area

Yep, the boondocking area around Clark Dry Lake is no longer. We had been hearing/reading blogs stating that the Anza Borrego State Park had purchased some of the Borrego Springs land north of S22 and east of Rockhouse Canyon Rd. and closed it off to campers. And yes it is true.  A very large section of, what used to be, …

Borrego Springs California

You know the old saying, “The more you learn, the less you know”.  We feel almost the same way with Anza Borrego State Park, “The more we explore, the less we know.”  We continue to find new and interesting places. This is maybe our 5th of 6th trip here and we explore during each trip until we are ready to …

Anza Borrego San Felipe Wash

After every hike we take I always say “Wow that was my favourite hike ever”. Well same with this hike. But then you go on the next hike and at the moment it seems like the best. It reminds me of the Annie Leibowitz quote when asked what her favourite photograph is and she replied “The next one”. Well that’s …

Borrego Springs Clark Dry Lake

  This is one of our favorite hikes while boondocking in the Clark Dry Lake area. It is an easy, almost flat, hike of about 8 miles roundtrip across Clark Dry Lake and over to the far side near the base of the mountains at a beautiful oasis (also known as Clark Well). We have hiked to the oasis several …
