Guest Ranches

Hikes, Hayrides & Skies Full of Stars

First, let's clear up any misunderstandings. We're not talking bedrolls on rough wood floors and water you pump from a well down the hill. Guest ranches in and around Tucson deliver the authentic Southwest without sacrificing things like hot tubs, WiFi, and great big comfy beds. The Arizona Dude Ranch Association represents high-quality guest ranches that are committed to preserving the tradition of Western hospitality. Saddle up and see the real Arizona!

So what should you expect? How about the relaxing elegance of a resort with the purifying solitude of thousands of acres of Sonoran desert, canyons, and foothills as far as the eye can see?

How about hikes, hayrides, and campfire sing-a-longs? Staff, that treats you like family? Guided trail rides and honest ranch cooking served up under more stars than you ever knew could fill a night sky?

Come stay in the same casitas once enjoyed by JFK, Katharine Hepburn, John Wayne, the Vanderbilts, and millions more, and experience the perfect mix of new luxuries in the Old West.
