The Borrego Springs Office was established in 1967
and serves an unincorporated area encompassing
approximately 550 square miles, including the Ocotillo
Wells State Recreation Vehicular Area and Anza-Borrego
Primarily desert, Borrego Springs has a varying
elevation from near sea level to as high as 6,600 feet.
The Ocotillo Wells State Recreation Vehicular Area is a
popular off-highway vehicle park for dune-buggy, ATV,
motorcycle and four-wheel drive enthusiasts. The
Anza-Borrego State Park attracts thousands of visitors
each year for hiking, photography and sightseeing.
From October to May, between 50,000 to 150,000 off-road
visitors and campers visit Borrego Springs. During
the off-road season, the San Diego County Sheriff's

California State Parks.
Initially, the Borrego Springs Office served as a satellite office
for the Julian Substation. In 1993, the Ranchita/Warner
Springs Substation took command of the office. In 2008,
the office was moved to accommodate future growth with
space for allied law enforcement agencies including the
California Highway Patrol (CHP), California State
Parks and Bureau of Land Management.
