The Great Outdoors

When you choose to book an RV rental in Borrego Springs, CA, travel south of town to the remarkable Anza-Borrego Desert State Park near Julian, CA. One of the largest state parks in California, and in the entire country, Anza-Borrego Desert is able to be explored over the more than 100 miles of trails that trace their way through the park. Surrounded by several mountain ranges, including the Vallecito, Santa Rosa, and Laguna, the desert is perfectly encapsulated and forms a beautiful environment and ecosystem.

About an hour's drive northeast of Borrego Springs is the Salton Sea State Recreation Area near Mecca, CA, on the northern shores of the lake. The saline-rich lake is located along the San Andreas Fault. Not only that, but it sits in the lowest elevation point of the Colorado Desert. This unique lake is one of the largest saline lakes in the world, making it a rather bizarre travel destination. Visitors to this unique site can enjoy tanning on the sunny beaches of the lake and then going for a swim whenever you need to cool off.

About an hour's drive to the west of Borrego Springs is the Cleveland National Forest. You can hike through the pine forests, stroll through the chaparral plains, and even hike along a section of the Pacific Crest Trail. Or if you’d rather, you can try your hand at some of the incline-gaining trails that lead up to waterfalls or panoramic vistas of the forest below. Or instead, you can get a wilderness permit and explore the various wilderness areas in the forest.
