Southern California in Winter

Does anyone have a good campground to recommend in Southern California? We have an idea to escape the rain and cold of the northern coast in late January or early February, someplace with more hook-ups rather than less, near some interesting place (Palm Springs or LA to check out architecture, the desert to check out the desert, or somewhere fun) AND where others might want to join us. I love Joshua Tree but haven't camped without water and power yet... but could be convinced. Any feedback is greatly appreciated.

Couple Palm Springs recommendation for parks we go to: Emerald Desert Resort in Palm Desert is great. A little pricy but good location, nice pool, very clean. Sky Valley Resort is decent and has nice hot spring pools but spots are not paved so little sandy and not much around.

I have enjoyed camping up near Santa Barbara. Just spent Thanksgiving at Flying Flags (Buellton) and Lake Cachuma a few weeks ago. Good area for wine tasting.

Flying Flags looks good- I want to do more rustic camping, but we're still tethered to power for heat and sewer until I do some work to the drain tank. I also found Anza Borrego Springs RV, looked kind of okay and not terribly dull, but in a good location.

Careful where you go in SoCal. The desert and other locations at altitude can be COLD!!!! Just sayin'...... And we've been having this cold snap lately too. I think it's been really cold out at Anza Borrego, 'specially at nite.

You might want to check out Modernism Week (architecture & style) and the Vintage Trailer Show in Palm Springs in Mid-February. We went last year and could have stayed a month. Lotsa stuff going on that time of year. Sinatra Celeb Golf Tourney (free), Fairs,Farmers Markets, etc. We stayed at Indian Waters Resort in Indio. Good value...quiet and clean. We're planning on going back this year if we can get time off from new jobs. An easy drive to Joshua Tree if you want to go rustic for a few days, then hop over to Quartzsite as CDONA suggests. Camp anywhere in the desert you care to drive to.

Modernism weeks sounds fun.. I've not been into the PS "thing" in the past, but I love Joshua Tree and have stayed at the 29 Palms inn several times over the years. I've also wanted to explore some of the architecture there.

I'm sure Anza Borrego can be cold.. I used to to 29P in January and it was nice during the day and cold at night.
