Southern California in 1978 — David Hockney’s swimming pool paintings lined gallery walls, Joan Didion was drafting The White Album, Van Halen’s debut album blared through car stereos, and the first ball was hit on the tennis courts at Anza-Borrego Desert State Park.



Anza-Borrego Desert State Park is the area’s main attraction. It is the largest state park in California. We’re neighbors with the Visitor Center where you can get info on hiking, camping, stargazing and wildflowers. The town is dedicated to preserving the night sky as California’s only Dark Sky Community.



The area is dotted with desert curiosities like the Salton Sea, Salvation Mountain and the International Banana Museum. Joshua Tree, Palm Springs, Ocotillo Wells and Julian are all a day trip away.
