Blu In RV Park & Café

2189 Highway 78
Borrego Springs, CA  92004

It is always hard to review a park that we work, but we will try to be as impartial as we are able to be.

They charge $45-55 per night, $225-$275 weekly and $475-$625 monthly and they also have a $65 charge for monthly storage.  They do charge for additional people and vehicles.  Many of their sites are very long pull through sites with 30/50 amp electric, water, sewer on gravel.  No cable or WiFi is offered and phone service is very sketchy, especially on the weekends when the desert fills up.  They do have a strict chemical usage in your sewer, so check it out before you arrive.

You are in the middle of the desert so make sure you bring all your supplies, they do have a store for some forgotten essentials but you are 23 miles in either direction away from gas and any sort of store, and 35 to 45 miles from the nearest big grocery.  They have a café that serves breakfast and lunches but usually close before dark.

The park is fairly new so the restrooms, showers and laundry facilities are very modern and for the most part kept clean.  Very hard to keep spotless due to the almost constant wind blowing dust everywhere.  The same goes for the pool and spa.

The owners are nice to work with and they do like their visitors to keep to the rules about off road riding inside the park and quiet time.  They feel if you want to get loud and rowdy then that is what all the boondocking land is around for, not inside the park. 

That being said…the biggest issue we had was the lighting.  They never turn on all the park lights and being on a short timer it is pretty dark all the time.  Others may be alright with this but I like to be able to see outside so we bought our own patio lighting that kept me comfortably lit up at night.

Another issue for us was the weather…hot, dusty and windy most of the time.  We had several wind storms, day and nighttime where we could not see a few feet in front of us and the collection of dust in our home daily was not easy maintaining. 

We would recommend it if you are into off road riding and seclusion, otherwise not much to do in the area.

Sunsets and sunrises are spectacular, check out our photos of our entire stay at our  Google + Web Albums.

Looks like a good place to stay to enjoy the desert.

never understood the dust storm/sand storm story until we experienced it in Palm Desert last month. . .wow. . .we are still finding sand in places.

Cleaned it out of the crevices of the bay doors this past week. . .and if a window is left open. . .fuh get about it. . .

Good to know the no off roading is enforced. . .that would make me happy!
