Agua Caliente Park is a regional camping park nestled in the huge, Anza Borrego Desert State Park and is best known for its geothermally heated springs and rugged desert hiking.

Three naturally fed pools provide different ways of enjoying the park's mineral water. There are two pools outdoors, and an indoor therapeutic spa is heated to 102 degrees and outfitted with Jacuzzi jets. Hikers will enjoy miles of trails that meander through the park's canyons and over its hillsides.

The park is very popular during the winter and has numerous camping sites available including: full hook-ups, partial hook-ups, non hook-up and tent sites, and a caravan area for large groups. The park now offers seven new camping cabins outfitted with temperature controls to beat the heat, a table with seating for four, two queen size bed frames, a sink, and a bathroom.
