*Warner Springs Ranch Resort will remain closed until further notice due to the COVID-19 epidemic. Horseback trail rides and the GAS Mart are operational, however.
Warner Springs Ranch is a 2,500-acre, iconic Western-themed hot springs ranch resort near Lake Henshaw and an hour northeast of San Diego. The main lodge is 27,000 square feet, and guests also have access to various lodging options, dining options, and other facilities.
Warner Springs has a documented Native American history dating back at least 6,000 years. They were the ancestors of people who settled in the area about 1700.
The land became a working ranch in the middle of the 19th century. In the 1920s, it was known as a health and wellness retreat and a place to have fun. It is known for its healing natural hot springs and beautiful countryside views.
Natural Hot Springs
The property will have a completed hot springs pool in the near future; it is still under development. It was due to open in 2020 but has been delayed because of the pandemic.
Warner Springs offers a wealth of things to do with its four tennis courts, horseback riding trails, swimming pools, volleyball courts, and hiking and biking trails. The resort plans to re-establish 40 acres of vineyards to have an on-site winery.
Golf is another significant amenity at the property. The 18-hole, Par 72 championship course at Warner Springs Ranch Golf Club has a total yardage of 6,775, making it a unique challenge for players of any ability level. The Ranch, where these 18 holes are located, and the planned “Johnny Miller-inspired 9 holes” are known for their long history and high quality.
Just a few miles away, Lake Henshaw is a large lake that’s stocked with many fish species, perfect for anglers of all skill levels. This is a great year-round fishing location; all the bait, gear, and licenses needed can be purchased at the ranch store.
With a focus on using fresh, locally sourced products and a farm-to-plate philosophy, Warner Springs Ranch Resort is creating a range of elite but family-friendly dining experiences, both inside and out. The resort has everything you need to eat, from chuck wagon BBQs to morning rides on horseback to grab-and-go options.
Take one of the packed breakfasts or lunches with you as you spend the day bicycling, hiking, or horseback riding. Enjoy the privacy of your room while taking advantage of their in-cottage dining service.
Accommodations and Camping

The resort also plans to add a luxury RV park along Agua Caliente Creek. When complete, it will be in proximity to the property’s amenities, with easy access to golf, the hot springs, and horseback riding stables.
