Rancho Capistrano, is a private, gated community surrounded by the Cleveland National Forest, in Riverside County, California.[2]

It is located within the Morrell Potrero, in the Elsinore Mountains, northwest of Elsinore Peak. The potrero, drained by Morrell Canyon Creek, a tributary of San Juan Creek, was originally the site of the Morrell Ranch. It was developed as a gated community in 1969.[2][3]
