RV Park Near the Borrego Springs Metal Sculptures
Updated: Apr 29
Looking for great day trip away from your motorhome parked at your lot at Motorcoach Country Club in Indio, California? Just about 68 miles from our gate is an area developed by Dennis Avery, of file folder tab fame. You will find approximately 130 full sized metal sculptures of serpents and dinosaurs, many of the creatures that roamed the area during the pleo-pleistocene age.
There are various dinosaurs, wild horses, pre-historic elephants and over-sized birds roaming the chaparral and the sands. Many other extinct creatures, dioramas honoring historical characters, local history, desert tortoises, saber-tooth tigers and agricultural workers in the nearby fields, all stand frozen in time.
This magnificent desert landscape attracts Class A motorhomes to view the sculptures created by Ricardo Breceda, http://ricardobreceda.com/, a metal sculptor. The art is spread out amongst the desert sands and a map can be found at: www.borregospringschamber.com. You will easily find the office as you enter the town.
This area features other interesting places to take your Class A motorcoach. The Anza Borrego State Park, is popular with all types of RV owners from Palm Springs, La Quinta, Indian Wells and other nearby resort areas. Beautiful wildflowers bloom in the desert sands during the raining season, canyons pock-marked by erosion and time enhance your drive to the sculptures.
The most impressive piece of this art is a serpent about 350 feet long. It has the gigantic head of a serpent and on the other side of the road a tail of a rattlesnake. More exhibits include a T-Rex, ancient camels, and a full size Willys Jeep, complete with passengers navigating large boulders.
