Campground Review: Rockhouse Boondocking, Borrego Springs, CA
Why we chose here: We visited the area last year over the holidays as part of a nomadic gathering, and this year we returned for an even bigger gathering over New Year. The temperatures here in the winter are glorious, and there are big blue skies and some cool hikes. The town is cute and welcoming of the RV community. We much prefer it here to other boondocking meccas e.g. Quartzite
Sites: This is just desert so the going is a little rough, but there is plenty of room and opportunities to get level. The amount of space available for boondocking has been reduced recently since last year, but there is still lots and lots of space.
Facilities: Nothing here but sand.
Groceries: Best to do a shop and stock up before you get here. The market in town is not bad, small but a decent selection of veggies, craft beer and basic supplies. There is also a farmers market on a Friday morning that has a few interesting items. Citrus in in abundance and extremely inexpensive at the nearby fruit stands.
Cell Coverage / WiFi: A little coverage, depends on how many people are there, the tower tends to get overloaded. The town has WiFi at Christmas Circle and many nomads head there to get better speeds.
Price Paid: $0
Date of visit: December 2015 / January 2016
Would we come here again? Yes, it's one of our favorite spots to boondock.
