Agua Caliente Springs Park

Agua Caliente Springs Park Located about 100 miles from San Diego along County Route S-2 you will find this secluded hot springs and campground. The Kumeyaay Indians were some of the first visitors to the springs at what is now call Agua Caliente ("hot water" in Spanish.) Spanish explorer Juan de Anza was the first European to visit the area, in 1775. In more recent times, the springs at Agua Caliente were used by pioneers, soldiers, and prospectors. There are two naturally fed pools a large outdoor pool is a natural 90 degrees, and an indoor therapeutic spa is heated to 102 degrees. Campers can use one of the 140 campsites which have full or partial hookups. Surrounding Agua Caliente is Anza Borrego Desert State Park, the largest state park in country.
