Question Boondocking Anza-Borrego area? or nearby?

Boondocking Anza-Borrego area? or nearby?

Hi all

Looking to do some self contained camping away from the sad smoke of the Malibu fires…. soon.

I read that Rockhouse Trail Campsite - Borrego Springs, CA

is nice, quiet, and not too far from a town….

any other suggestions vaguely in the area?

Any good, quiet camping (no reservations needed) in Silverado area? Mt San Jacinto? San Bernadino National Forest?

A short trip, coming from Los Angeles, so semi-close to LA would be good. So less than 200 miles from LAX.

It can’t be a difficult road to get there… meaning it can’t be real “off road”. Needs to be a fairly flat dirt road access.

We spent a great week boondocking in Anza-Borrego in 2017 and had no problem finding beautiful quiet spots to hang out - can't wait to have another opportunity to go there!

I just got back from Anza recently and it was absolutely incredible! Had no problem finding boondocking sites all over the park and also stayed at the Palm Oasis campground and Aqua Caliente campground.

Make sure to do the Oasis Hike as well as the slot canyons and the mud caves. The hot springs are very nice too.
