Join us on the shores of the beautiful Salton Sea for 2 nights of beach camping & bonfires at the annual Pre Thanksgiving Campout & Rendezvous on Mecca Beach at the Salton Sea State Park.
The campground has paved roads, solar heated showers, flush toilets, and plenty of shade. The sunsets in the evening are spectacular and you can pitch your tent right on the edge of the lake; wake up to the sounds of pelicans and other sea birds that call this place home. Not much waterfront camping available in So Cal – this is a rare opportunity.
8 miles south is the village of Bombay Beach, which has a tavern, a market, and an American Legion Hall which serves very good (and extremely inexpensive) breakfast, lunch, & dinner. Wendell at the Ski Inn will keep you hydrated with some very stiff drinks and you can mingle with the locals, who rarely see outsiders.
If you travel 10 miles north, you will find the town of Mecca with gas, grocery stores and restaurants serving VERY authentic Mexican food.
You can also bring your own food, drink, and provisions to take care of yourself right there at the campground. There is plenty of running water and picnic tables.
Slab City, Salvation Mountain, thermal mud pots, the Salton Sea visitors center and Alvaro’s Date Ranch also make great spots to visit while you’re in the region.
Call, text, or email me if you need additional details. This is a very motorcycle-friendly campground, so we can have many bikes per site, which keeps the cost down. There will be donation bucket to cover the cost of the campsites, provisions, and other goodies.
