Cibbets Flat Campground is a remote camping destination in the southern Laguna Mountains, south of Anza Borrego Desert State Park. Access to the campground is off Interstate 8 and 5 miles north on Kitchen Creek Road. The campground serves as a stopping spot for hikers along the Pacific Crest Trail, which is 0.8 miles southeast of the campground on Fred Canyon Road. (Use the PCT button to find information about the Pacific Crest Trail at Cibbets Flat Campground.)
Cibbets Flat Campground has 24 single campsites which are available first-come, first-served. Campsites are nicely shaded by mature oaks. Campsites 19-22 require a short walk from the parking area and offer nice privacy. In the spring when Kitchen Creek is flowing at its best, the stream offers soothing views of the water cursing among the rocks.
Not all campsites can accommodate trailers or RVs of all lengths. Check carefully on the reservation site when you make your reservation to be sure your vehicle will fit your campsite.
Temperatures in the desert can reach 80-100 degrees in the spring. Visitors are advised to carry water and wear sun protective hats. Be aware of possible flash floods during storms. Check with the park for road conditions. Always notify someone of
your plans, including when you plan to return.
Designated Accessible sites are usually reserved for people with disabilities who have a vehicle displaying an accessible parking placard or license plate.
