  • description:
    The actual town is nothing more than a gas station mini-market place, maybe a taco shop if you're lucky. Mostly residential. Mecca is a small, agricultural community on the north side of the Salton Sea, in between Anza Borrego Desert and Joshua Tree Park. FREE CAMPING on Box Canyon Road, just off Interstate 10 in the southern California desert.
