Excellent! I have a feeling that this location will be better than the one we've previously used. Looking forward to it! :D

Chris... Once you've attended a BorregoFest you'll understand why we hold it in a place like this. People come in with RV's and larger groups. :D

This looks like a fantastic venue for Borregofest....

It looks like it has more green area than our previous campground, and each campsite has AC power available for ham radios, fridge/freezers or any other electronic devices (You will probably need an RV plug adapter to access it).

I'm looking forward to another great event in the Anza-Borrego desert...

Speaking of RV adapter plugs, Harbor Freight has various configs for less than $10.

Here's a link to a map of the campground. We have several rows reserved just to the right of the playground and pool.
