Anza-Borrego Desert State Park
Anza-Borrego Desert State Park is a varied and beautiful geological wonderland. From mountains to low desert and over 600,000 acres in size, there is something for everyone. The low desert locations, including the charming town of Borrego Springs, is a fantastic cold-weather destination and one of the first places to see wildflowers. In fact, depending on autumn monsoonal activity, you may see blooms from September until January when the spring flowers are beginning to sprout. Likewise, the higher elevations are often in full-flower in later spring and early summer. Open camping, a rarity in any park, promises fun-filled days searching for plants and star-filled nights around the campfire. For those who require a little more comfort, there are many independent inns in the town of Borrego Springs, which was the first International Dark-Sky Community in California. Put this park on your bucket list.
