  • What a beautiful site and what a remarkable man who used his influence for good. I had thought of him only as Poncho, Cisco's sidekick in the early 1950s. Well worth the short ride from DT Carlsbad...

  • Amazing stop! Worth the drive up from San Diego! My family and I love history, and all the employees and volunteers were lovely and knowledgeable! The short film in the Visitors Center was a nice surprise as well! Beautiful place to explore with lots of history.
  • It is an interesting and well maintained Historical Ranch in Carlsbad. 12 of us had an informative tour of this over 2500 acre park.It is free. It is open, weekend tours go on, but other times,give them a call. It is a great place to bring visitors. Leo Carrillo was a very interesting man. Many of you might remember "The Cisco Kid". He was the costar Pancho. He lived on this ranch for many years. I highly suggest a visit.
