The Anza-Borrego Desert State Park is the largest state park in California and is known for its vast landscape and diverse wildlife. The park features washes, wildflowers, palm groves, cacti and sweeping vistas. It is home to the Peninsular Bighorn Sheep, which can be very elusive, as well as roadrunner, desert cottontails, black-tailed jackrabbits, Gambel’s Quail, and a variety of reptiles.
Visitors can explore the park by driving on its extensive dirt roads or hiking its trails. A free park magazine presents information about the different resources in the Park, along with a basic map. A more detailed park map can be purchased at the Visitor Center store.
