Anza-Borrego Desert State Park®


Vision Statement
Mission Vision Purpose
  • Anza-Borrego Desert State Park® is a place of awe, inspiration, and refuge.
  • The vast desert landscape and scenery are preserved in a pristine condition.
  • The full array of natural and cultural resources are cared for so as to perpetuate them for all time while supporting those seeking enjoyment from these resources.
  • Park visitors are delighted with the condition and level of facilities, enhancing their experience of the Park.
  • Visitors are able to access unique and special areas of the Park so as to instill knowledge and appreciation of these places.
  • Emphasis is placed on having park visitors experience the true, real, tangible desert environment, even if it leads to some level of uncertainty or discomfort, because this leads to personal insight and perspective only gained by first-hand knowledge.
  • The Park maintains one’s ability, if desired, to camp in any particular location within the Park as long as it does not compromise the health, safety, and welfare of park visitors or compromise park resources.
  • The Park is a place where silence can be found and total darkness achieved.
  • At this Park, the forces of nature remain undeniably stronger than human forces, and people, in general, visit, but do not remain
