General

  • Welcoming site within the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park
  • Restaurant/bar, swimming pool, hot tubs and firepits
  • Stargazing area: explore on tour with a local astronomer

Stargazing in California? How spectacular. Book an astronomically excellent tour with a local expert when you bed down at Palm Canyon Hotel and RV Resort, only 300 metres from the vast dark skies of the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park.

If the lure of stargazing doesn't make you starry eyed, a good range of daytime activities are within a couple of miles from here too: you could roar a 4X4 around the desert on a driving trip, play tennis within 100 metres and golf within four miles, or investigate the diversity of the desert's wildlife with an afternoon at Anza-Borrego Desert Natural History Association and Botanical Garden a mile away.

Among this desert setting at Palm Canyon is a stellar choice of accommodation, a scenic setting, paved roads and first-rate facilities alongside a welcoming, casual vibe. Guests have access to a heated pool, hot tubs, a fitness room and a general store, and can eat at the Western-style bar-restaurant or cook on the firepits or barbecues.

The resort also has free wifi, bathrooms with toilets and showers, and a launderette with washing machines and tumble dryers.

    This was our first time staying at Palm Canyon. We rented a little vintage trailer. Friendly staff met us at the trailer for show and tell and answered questions we had about the facility. The full bed was only full size and not sure we would be comfortable. However, the table/seat area converted into a bed so we used that too. At first glance it looked like it would not be comfortable but it was extremely comfortable. We slept like rocks! Fresh linens, towels, pillows, bath soap and shampoo were provided. It was terrific to have the pool and hot tub after hiking all day! The area outside the trailer was private and had a grill for cooking. We brought our lantern with us for but it was a nice surprise that they had a cord of low level lights for sitting at the table that was perfect for seeing without being too bright. The bath house was spotless and the showers were not coin operated which was also a nice amenity! We really had a relaxing visit and everyone was extremely friendly and helpful. Thank you Palm Canyon!

    The friendly and professional staff, the clean refreshing pool, and the immaculate, charming grounds. We were greeted with cookies, a very nice touch. I would definitely stay again at the hotel.

    Disliked: 

    The "double bed" in our little "hammie" was barely big enough for one man (my husband). I had to sleep else ware on a mat. The campgrounds keep their security lights on all night. I understand and appreciate the desire to keep the grounds safe, however it was difficult to sleep with lights on.

From the manager...

Thank you for your feedback. A few of our vintage trailers are on the smaller side but we do offer larger trailer rentals and hotel rooms if you would like more space during your next visit. We look forward to hosting you again soon!

Local attractions

The Anza-Borrego Desert State Park a short stroll from Palm Canyon is the largest state park in California, set wholly within the Colorado Desert. Its 600,000 acres cover over 500 miles of dirt roads, 110 miles of hiking trails and over 550 types of fossil plants and animals discovered so far in its terrain.

The park also has 12 designated wilderness areas, where you can spot desert dwellers like mountain lions, foxes, jackrabbits, golden eagles, prairie falcons and – if you're lucky – the warily shy bighorn sheep. The Desert Museum a mile from Palm Canyon has information on the park's wildlife and history.

Also within a mile is the Anza-Borrego Desert Natural History Association and Botanical Garden, and the Borrego Art Institute and Art Guild, with gallery, pottery studio, classes, events and a restaurant. 4x4 desert tours and Borrego Night Sky Tours are also within the same distance.

Slightly further away, you can see the Galleta Meadows Metal Sculptures within two miles, and access three golf courses within four. The Fonts Point scenic outlook is 12 miles away.
