Ocotillo Wells State Vehicular Recreation Area

State Vehicular Recreation Areas (SVRAs) are operated by California State Park's Off Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation Division (OHMVRD) and you may see their web pages, www.ohv.parks.ca.gov, for more information on these parks.

Adjacent to Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, Ocotillo Wells SVRA is a motorcycle, four-wheel drive, all-terrain vehicle, and dune buggy use area that offers more than 85,000 aces of magnificent desert exploration. The park has pay showers, picnic tables, shade structures, fire rings and a dump station available, but no water. Access is via Highway 78, about 35 miles east of Julian or about 20 miles west of Highway 86. Phone (760) 767-5391 for more information.

Holmes Camp: Camping is permitted almost anywhere but there are two accessible sites with compliant furnishings and shade structures at this popular camping area.

Restrooms, showers, and routes: The accessible toilets permit side transfers. Showers are generally accessible. Four additional vault type restrooms in Holmes Camp accommodate side and front transfers. Routes of travel to all restrooms, showers and trash traverse unstable soft sand, and wheelchair users may need to drive or be dropped off.

Other Information
Portable toilets throughout the park have been replaced with permanent accessible vault restrooms.
