The DeAnza Springs Resort is nestled on over 500 acres of high desert – 2600 feet of elevation, to be exact – just outside of Jacumba Hot Springs. The resort is surrounded on three sides by the breathtaking hills of the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park
During the month of June, the temperatures average in the mid 80s during the day and mid 40s at night with low humidity. The area is known for high winds off and on throughout the year. BE PREPARED! Mother Nature has her own agenda and you should be prepared for extreme temperatures and high winds as it’s always possible!
Vegetation & Terrain
Do not damage, break or remove any plants. Plants which seem dead may only be dormant; truly dead plants are still part of the ecosystem, providing nourishment and shelter for other lifeforms. The area is pretty clear of vegetation but be careful where you park your vehicle– stay clear of bushes or shrubs (this is how fires can start!).
Cholla is a term applied to various shrubby cacti of this genus with cylindrical stems composed of segmented joints. These stems are actually modified branches that serve several functions—water storage, photosynthesis and flower production. If you encounter cholla, do not touch them! They are known for their barbed spines that tenaciously attach to skin, fur, and clothing
Textile Policy Change
As of this summer, management of DeAnza Spring Resort has announced a policy change and have chosen to transition the resort to a “textile” park.
Effective September 1, 2023
Clothing will be mandatory at all times at all “common areas” (ex. Clubhouse, all roads, pools, gym, hiking trails, etc.)
Site-Holders that lease a site from DeAnza Springs Resort may continue to not wear clothes at their own site.
Effective October 30, 2023
Clothing will be required at all times within the park premises including all sites at DeAnza Springs Resort.
Production has talked to the managers at DeAnza Springs Resort and while they are firm on their policy, they also understand and respect our event and wish to full embrace the Burning Man Principle of Radical Self Expression. While, residents and visitors will have to adhere to DeAnza Springs Resort’s updated nudity policy, no one is going to be on dress code patrol within the perimeters of YOUtopia.
Thank you for being respectful during this time of transition.
