Sunny Southern California!

We’re located in San Diego County, just 10 miles east of I-15 at Old Castle Rd. Just about about 15 miles north of Escondido and about 20 minutes off of Interstate 15.  The best thing is that if you have forgotten any of your camping supplies or have a last minute need, town center is only about 10 minutes away!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 

From I-15 Gopher Canyon Rd. exit, it is recommended to take Old Castle Rd to the east.  This is arriving from both the north and south on I-15.  Follow the Mapquest direction from there.

There is a great deal of California history to observe in the immediate local area as well. Mission San Antonio de Pala is the only surviving Asistencia (a small scale mission with Divine service, however lacking a resident priest ) in the California mission system.  Other great historic references include the historic Butterfield Overland Stage Line cut right through the area in its time, the Sickler Grist Mill est. in 1881 was the region’s only mill and its foundation exists today, and in 1866 the largest California grizzly bear ever captured was found in Valley Center. Stop by the Valley Center History Museum just down the road from Broken Rock Ranch for all the interesting details .

Various Indian gaming casinos (Harrah’s Rincon, Pala, and Casino Pauma) and entertainment are also within a short distance making Broken Rock Ranch a viable and inexpensive form of accommodation for those attending casino events and concerts. 

Valley Center is also a very popular central location for cycling enthusiasts and has been included in the AMGEN Tour of California route in previous years.  According to, motorcyclists find the area to host many beautiful rides, as well as “the most technical road in Southern California”  when riding the Palomar Mountain Loop. Other thrill seekers will enjoy the Pala Raceway which hosts motocross and mini-bike events in addition to providing practice use of their tracks.

Golfers will be happy to know that there are a number of local award winning courses nearby as well.
