"The name combines oak with manzanita, an attractive chaparral shrub. Oakzanita Springs Resort is south of Cuyamaca Rancho State Park on Highway 79. Oakzanita Peak not far away, first appeared on the 1960 Cuyamaca Peak 7.5' Quadrangle, while the resort is on the 1931 Blackburn San Diego County Map, suggesting that the mountain was named for the resort. (Durham 52; Gudde 266; Stein 91)."
