You might want to take a drive through Slab City with your vehicle first before planning on staying there. That's what we did - and we didn't stay there.

Borrego Springs is a gorgeous area. There are some RV parks, a state park campground, lots of beautiful boondocking spots and other public parks. There are some great drives and 4-wheeling, nice hiking trails, a fun Farmer's Market. It's a favorite of ours.

Check out the videos on You Tube before heading to Slab City. Looks like where "end of the road" types wind up. (not that there's anything wrong with that)

Not sure what kind of camping you do but some of the places around Salton can be shall we say rustic. The slabs have gone considerably down hill in the past ten years. You may want to check out Fountain of Youth RV Park. There are also tons of places in Cathedral City. We stay at the Sands in Desert Hot Springs.

First do not stay at Slab city, just do go there for the day to see the sights and just out side the Slab is Salvation Mnt, a American heritage sight. Boondocking at Borrago Springs, Clarks dry lake and be sure to visit Fonts Point for Sun down. Camp ground State Park at Borrago Springs, neat hiking area to see the desert sheep. NE a hour or so is Joshua park with boondocking or camp ground, great sights and hiking or exploring. And Patton museum a few mile east of the south entrance to the park at Carriaco summit on th I route.

I'd second Borrego Springs and also "The Springs at Borrego RV Resort and Golf Course". Make your reservations early.
The Springs at Borrego RV Park, Anza-Borrego Desert State Park,
California

Right in Borrego Springs:
RV Park Information | Palm Canyon Hotel & RV Resort


There's also Pinezanita RV Park south of Julian.
Pinezanita RV Park & Campgrounds | Pinezanita

and these:
Stagecoach Trails RV & Horse Camping Resort in San Diego County

Butterfield Ranch RV Park, Mobile Home Park and Campground | Butterfield Ranch Resort San Diego RV park and Campground

Slab City? If you are still in the hippie days, it is great. It is not as bad as everyone says. For sure it is nothing to look at but the people are friendly

I always recommend Bernardo Shores in Imperial Beach (think Coronado Island). Adult park. One of our favorites!
