|Looking back at the campground from across the lake.|
This has always been one of our favorites and makes for a nice interlude with water and electric. The park backs up to the Santa Rosa Mountains, those same mountains we gazed at while in Anza Borrego, which would be about 25 miles as the crow flies just over the above photo. No dry lake here, but a large reservoir full to the brim, making for a nice 2.5 mile walk-around.

Free WiFi is offered with its own little shady enclosure, including electric plug-ins for your devices, chairs and a nice workstation. Most of the park hosts are super friendly Canadians who love to landscape, as we know. There are 60 sites in the developed section and probably the only drawback is parking on dirt, but Eucalyptus trees provide shade in the campground.
The large day-use area has grassy picnic sites by the lake with playground and Palm trees, and a swimming pool that opens in May. There is also an equestrian area with RV sites as well as horse facilities, and birds galore.
It was super meeting up with the Talleys for lunch one afternoon. They were staying at the nearby Fantasy Springs Casino, planning to return to Anza Borrego...as is Gaelyn we hear. (Keep us posted on the wildflowers!)
We are looking forward to visits with friends; Earl and Gail who winter in Indio, and Bob and Kathie heading this way from Chula Vista. Then it'll be time to head toward Yuma, maybe with a stop in Quartzsite, Kofa, or Imperial Dam, depending on which route we decide to take. We know there will be duck a la rotisserie with the Panys, and hopefully Beth will be seeing clearly after cataract surgeries. Until next time...
