Highway S22
Arroyo Salado Campground, Tubb Canyon
Borrego Springs  92004

Located in the Anza-Borrego Desert, this spot is the only watering hole within miles that is year-round. The water is drinkable, but not recommended as it is highly alkaline. The watering hole holds a history of miners leaving messages for others who would come through behind them. Because animals still use the watering hole during the night, overnight camping is not permitted. However, the trail is prime for a desert adventure. The first three and one-half miles of the wash allow for four-wheel-drive vehicles. The last section (about one-quarter mile) does not allow for vehicles, but may be traveled by hikers on foot.
