California’s largest state park protects the arid mountain wilderness of the Anza-Borrego Desert.

Made up of 12 wilderness areas, the park is home to bighorn sheep, wildflowers, palms, cacti, eagles, roadrunners, and iguanas.

It’s a remote-feeling wilderness area, ideal for desert hiking and drives. Wildflower season (February to April) is a stellar time to visit, with flowering cacti in every color of the rainbow.

Practical Info

The 3 main areas of the Anza-Borrego Desert are Borrego Springs, Blair Valley and Split Mountain. The visitor center is 2 miles (3 km) west of Borrego Springs if you need to pick up an overnight camping permit.

The desert is in the east of San Diego county, a 2-hour drive south of Palm Springs via Highway 86.
