Agua Caliente Park is a 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. 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 and tent sites, a caravan area for large groups, and seven camping cabins with temperature controls, a table with seating for four, two queen size bed frames, a sink, and a bathroom.   

NOTE: Alcoholic drinks are not allowed in the pool areas.
