Welcome to Rancho Mission Viejo
Nestled between Cleveland National Forest and the historic town of San Juan Capistrano
just five miles from the beach, Rancho Mission Viejo is one of southern Orange County’s newest and most thoughtfully designed master-planned communities.
Encompassing 23,000 acres, Rancho Mission Viejo is always close to nature, with Ronald W. Caspers Wilderness Park and San Juan Creek offering scenic destinations for residents of all ages. The Reserve at Rancho Mission Viejo reveals creeks, wetlands, woodlands, and native grasslands among 20,868 acres of protected and preserved hills and valleys.
Carefully interweaving old and new ways of life, the Village of Esencia at Rancho Mission Viejo is home to a cattle ranch, the Esencia Farm, neighborhood parks, the South Paw Dog Park, fitness centers and pools, clubhouses, Esencia Sports Park, Sendero Field, the 55-and-better community of Gavilán, and Campout, complete with reservable tents and fire pits.
