#DesertDaze2018 will take place in the valley of the unbroken horizon, known as Moreno Beach at beautiful Lake Perris in Southern California. Located 1.5 hours SE of Los Angeles, nestled between the San Jacinto and San Bernardino Mountains.

Our new location is beautiful, expansive, and otherworldly, without a house or shopping center in sight. There’s a lake, a beach, swimming, an island, desert landscape, rolling hills, & mountain ranges in every direction. No sight of the outside world. Very much like being on another planet.

Lake Perris is currently undergoing a state-sponsored renewal process, on track to increase the lake volume by 40% come October. In addition to revitalizing the environment in and around the lake, the Park Rangers and staff have created a welcoming culture of positivity. It’s been a pleasure seeing them and working with them. We hope to do our part in making the park cleaner, better, and more sustainable for the local wildlife, as well as travelers from around the world.
