*PLEASE READ ENTIRE DESCRIPTION BEFORE BOOKING! ***Please check in before 5 PM in the Winter months & before 7 PM in the Summer months.*** In-Ko-Pah Spirit Retreat is a Sky Show of Stars and Powerful Energy! Located in far E. San Diego County High Desert area of Jacumba Hot Springs, CA 91934. Not far from the U.S. Mexican Border. Considered part of the In-Ko-Pah Mountains. You will be traveling 1.6 miles on a dirt road with some bumps & ruts to reach Inkopah Spirit Retreat which sets on 10 acres off the Utility Grid. When it rains the road can get slick and 4 or all wheel drive might be necessary and in some areas the dirt turns to clay and vehicles may get stuck. Great Views & Hiking! Four Camps to Choose from: 1. Home Base - available for retreat, ceremony, ritual & camping. Host is available to facilitate: Retreats, Ceremonies, Meditation & Eclectic Energy Process by special arrangement. Sites 2 & 3 are more remote .13 of a mile from Home Base and campers need to pack gear in on a rough trail. 2. Vortex - Given this name because a shaman visited my property and claimed there was a energy vortex at this spot. 3. Earth Shrine - given this name because there was "Your Wish for the World" ceremony held here where participants wrote down their wish for the world and placed it in wooden box and hid them in the crevices and rocks. 4. Water Tank - site with an awesome view of Imperial Valley and on clear days you can see the Salton Sea. Stars! Stars! and more Stars! This site has two (2) fire pits and can accommodate up to 10 campers. Or you can walk the property with host and choose your own site. On arrival you will most likely be greeted by Bosco my dog. He is friendly and his barking is just to let me know you have arrived. I also have 5 hens and 2 cats. The most common remarks that visiting campers have are; "Such special energy present here. So peaceful, healing and therapeutic! Four miles from Inkopah Spirit is the village of Jacumba where there is a Little Lake that is filled with the Natural Mineral Hot Springs and is open to the public for kayaking and swimming." ***BEWARE - This is Rattle Snake Country! Bring a Comb to Dislodge any Cholla Cactus that may get attached to your Skin or Clothing.***I would suggest checking the Extended Weather Forecast before Booking and in rainy weather the dirt road can get muddy and impassable. Extreme winds occur in this area, at times! And PLEASE! There is no Trash Removal Service here off the Grid, So What You Bring in, Please Pack Out "Leave No trace". Thank you! LGBQT+ Friendly! There is Swimming & Kayaking available 4 miles away at Little Lake Jacumba.

Silence and solitude.
Absolutely wonderful. Amazing spot to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. I stayed in #3 which is a bit of a hike uphill from the base camp, but worth a couple trips (in my case) for the solitude and quiet. Greg is one of the friendliest and most welcoming hosts I’ve encountered. Glad I was able to be here.
We loved our brief stay at Inkopah and it was the perfect weekend escape. Greg and his animals were friendly and welcoming, the property is beautiful and well-maintained, and Greg did a great job blending the trails and campsites within the natural terrain. We were sleeping in our van so we stayed at Homesite (#1), which had an awesome fire pit and easy access to the outhouse. We’re planning to return in the spring with a tent and stay at one of the higher sites. Can’t wait to visit again!
Great host and location
Greg is a great host who greeted my whole group and made sure we knew that we were welcome to ask him for anything. I recommend his place to all my San Diego friends and anyone else who might be interested in getting away for a few days. The site was extremely private and his property feels a lot like Joshua tree, maybe better. We were able to stargaze without any light pollution or other distractions. The upkeep is amazing and Greg has everything you would need to spend a few days there comfortably (wood, water, fire pit, bathroom). After just one night, my entire group is eager to come back for a longer trip here.
Great weekend camping.
The views from the campsite are wonderful, sunrise and sunset awesome. Greg came up to our campsite and checked to see if everything was alright. I’ve never felt safer. Greg gave us directions to some great hikes. Overall, a fun weekend. We are already making plans to return.
Charming, funky desert hideaway
We loved our site #3 Earth Shrine, which was a very private hilltop site with views of spectacular sunsets and sunrises. We found out the next morning there were campers at #2 Vortex below us but we never knew they were there and they couldn’t hear us either! We felt very safe and Greg, the host, was very nice. We definitely will be back.
