Borrego Springs is a census-designated place (CDP) in San Diego County, California. The population was 3,429 at the 2010 census. Many residents are seasonal while others remain year round.

Borrego Springs is completely surrounded by a state park (Anza-Borrego State Park, the largest of California's State Parks). It is located approximately 55 miles from the bright lights of the highly developed Pacific coast. The village was designated as California's first International Dark-Sky Community by the International Dark-Sky Association. It is a center for public astronomy activities throughout the year. Every year in October, the community celebrates with the Borrego Days Desert Festival.

Borrego Springs has very "warm" climate. There are an average of 172.6 days with highs of 90 F (32 C) or higher and an average of only 2.6 days with lows of 32 F (0 C) or lower. The record high temperature was 122 F (50 C) on June 25, 1990. The record low temperature was 20 F (−7 C) on January 5, 1971.
