General Info and Sign-up - 2019 Borrego Fest

IMPORTANT NEW INFORMATION - READ THIS IN ITS ENTIRETY

GREAT NEWS!!!!! LOCATION UPDATE

Our continuing efforts to find an alternate location for Borrego fest has finally paid off, at least for 2019. The new campsite is the Tamarisk Grove Campground, (details and map below.) Among the many advantages of this site are:
  • actually in the Anza Borrego Desert State Park
  • hot showers
  • water
  • flush toilets
  • camp fire rings
  • tables with pergola
  • A small ranger station with a small museum and book store
  • nearby nature trails
  • accessible by all vehicles via a paved road

WELCOME EVERYONE!!!

It's time once again to start planning our annual Outdoor Adventure USA Borrego Fest event. The dates are set for October 4th through October 6th, (Friday, Saturday and Sunday.) for three days of camping. This is a family event that never fails to impress. Some of the activities we MAY offer are off-road trail runs, ham radio testing, a spectacular Saturday night Dutch Oven cook-off, wine tastings, great appetizers, coffee tastings, Ham radio demonstrations, and more. Please let us know if you plan on attending. Fees and sign up info below.

OAUSA depends on the donations from this event, and Summer Fest, to help it stay in operation. Campsite fees, taxes, and website expenses all add up, and OAUSA is comprised of a completely volunteer, unpaid staff. We have done our best to keep the fees reasonable, and ask that all who can, please join us for Borrego Fest 2019.

LOCATION AND DIRECTIONS
  • Campground: Tamarisk Grove Campground, sites 2,3,5,6,7,9,10,11,12,19,21,26.
  • Location: Anza Borrego Desert State Park, about 7 miles from the Scissors Crossing on Highway S3 (near the junction of Hwy 78 and S3.)
  • GPS coordinates (aprox): 33° 08.315 N - 116° 22.506 W
NOTE: Each camp site can hold a maximum of 8 people with three vehicles. The park service will probably charge a fee of $7.00 p/n for more than one vehicle at camp, which will need to be paid at the camp. There is an overflow area near camp and there may be a charge, but it is unknown at this time.

HOW TO SIGN-UP

No fee is required if you are only coming out for one day or are making other accommodations elsewhere, although there may be a day use fee charged by the Park Service. You are still allowed to participate in the trail run meetings, trail runs, special presentations, and evening festivities each day.

Fees are the same whether you stay for one night or two at the campground. The best and quickest way to pay for the weekend is through the "Donate" button located at the bottom of each page in the Forums. Please post your interest in attending in the format you see below and your name will be added to the roster. "CONFIRMED" will be entered next to your name once your donation has been received.
