Barona Valley Ranch Resort and Casino, one of the leading resort destinations in California, offers visitors the peace and tranquility of a sprawling mountain escape as well as the best casino action in California. Located just 30 minutes from downtown San Diego, what began as a small ranching community in 1932, with the establishment of the Barona Reservation, has blossomed into a successful and award-winning resort that far exceeds the hopes and dreams of the reservation’s founding families.
Today Barona Valley Ranch enjoys the distinction of being California’s best casino. Certified as having the loosest slots in San Diego by Strictly Slots, Blackjack Forum also proclaimed Barona Valley Ranch to have the best high-stakes blackjack in California. Average daily payouts of $10 million have helped make them a player favorite, too, earning Best Video Slots and Best Video Poker honors in a Strictly Slots readers’ poll. The Barona Creek Golf Club has also earned acclaim: Golfweek named the championship course the 3rd best resort course in California, and Golf Magazine ranked it a top 10 new course in America.
