Barona Resort and Casino is an Indian casino on the Barona Indian Reservation located in Lakeside, in northeastern San Diego County in California. It is owned and operated by the Barona Group of Capitan Grande Band of Mission Indians.
Barona offers guests over 75 table games including blackjack, poker, Pai gow poker, Mississippi Stud, California-style craps (using playing cards to determine the outcome of a roll rather than only dice, as dice-only games are not allowed in California tribal casinos), roulette and 2,000 slot and video poker machines. Barona is located in Lakeside, CA, 30 miles northeast of downtown San Diego, CA.
The legal age of gambling at Barona Casino is 18. While the legal age for gambling in California is 18 many tribal casinos in California set an age limit of 21 in order to comply with their alcohol license.
Unlike most casinos, Barona chose not to offer alcoholic beverages on the casino floor. It does offer alcoholic beverages in the Barona Oaks Steakhouse, Italian Cucina, Plaza restaurant and El Rancho Grande restaurant. According to leaders of Barona Casino, the winding and hilly nature of Wildcat Canyon Road, which serves as the main access route into Barona Indian Reservation, is a primary factor that led to this decision.
