This is a really big site with lots of room for both RVs & camping. There's a store on-site as well as toilets so if you've forgotten anything you won't be caught short. Doug who runs the place couldn't be more helpful. Having looked at a few other options in the Anza-Borrego area this was absolutely the winner and I... More

My husband and I came across this place after our original camping plans were ruined. I found Butterfield on Google, and they seemed to have good ratings. When I called to check availability Douglas answered and was beyond polite. We decided to take the drive down to Butterfield. The ranch had plenty of spots for our travel trailer. They also... More

My husband, dog, and two horses spent Christmas 2012 at Butterfield. We had a wonderful time. Doug, the gentleman in the check in place, was VERY helpful and very accommodating to all our requests. He also made it a point to check in with us every day, even Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. As we are a bit older, that... More

The people we talked to from Butterfield Ranch were very helpful and nice! We were almost the only campers there on a Saturday evening. There were a few RVs but we never saw anyone. It was very nice because we had two pools basically to ourselves. We grilled at one of the pools and it was a great evening! The... More

This is the ultimate desert getaway. Hiking with Barbara, Crafts for the kids with the other Barbara, swimming in the refreshingly cool pools(107 outside and the pools felt icy cold,buurrrr, awesome), and even talking with that funny fellow in the office/store were all highlights of our trip. The staff here is extremely friendly and accommodating and we will definitely be... More

My husband and I camped here, and we were able to bring our dog too. The best part is that they had 2 hot tubs and 3 pools, plus plenty of bathrooms and showers. The pools were refreshing when it was hot. We had to take turns, because pets are not allowed in the pool area, but that was only... More

A nice quiet place to enjoy the surrounding area. I was in an RV, with full hookups and loved the convenience. I didn't get much time to walk the ranch and see all the sites and sights, but what I did see was great. We were able to park two 36' motorhomes with 20' trailers no problem! Park people were...

We love this RV park because it's low key and a very natural desert setting. Amazing views of the hills all around you. we found a great stream in the next canyon over. We love the desert carpet at our feet with the little purple flowers. And it is a great base place to go 4 by in your truck/jeep.... More
