Agua Caliente Airport (FAA LID: L54) (Agua Caliente Airstrip) is a public airport a mile northeast of Agua Caliente County Park,[2] San Diego County, California. It covers 160 acres (65 ha) and has one runway.[3] Agua Caliente translates to "Hot Water" from Spanish.[4]

There is an average of one operation per day here, typically a general aviation transient. As of May 2014 no aircraft are based here.
