100% would recommend! Very quiet and well kept; open views and wonderful hosts. They were very patient answering questions and requests from our 7 and 9 year old. And, their pup wore our pup out. The dogs enjoyed chasing each other around the ranch. Access is convenient along a well maintained dirt road; close to Sonoita with Tucson and Patagonia a short drive away.

Couple of FYIs. Some of the sites are not very flat so if you have an RV you may not get it very level. However, I know these are new owners so they may level the sites out for future visitors. There's always work to do on a ranch! We have a 28' travel trailer and were able to level it nicely at Site 4. With backing the TT at Site 4, we needed a 50' water hose to connect from the faucet to the back of the camper. We had to buy one from a local shop in Tucson, but since my husband and I drove separately it was not a problem for me to stop by and grab one on the way there (and it was probably a good idea to purchase anyway).

Overall, a wonderful place to visit and stay. My husband and I would return and feel very luck to have found this quiet little corner of the world to stay when we are in the area.

We had a wonderful weekend here. The location is just off the main highway (83) and the property is absolutely beautiful. The new owners went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. We will definitely be back.

Hospitality is second to none. The beautiful views are unending. Short drive to conveniences if you forget anything. Peace and quiet with plenty of area to roam. We will definitely be back.

The kids were already asking if we could go back and stay as we were driving away. It was great! Nice quiet spot, an easy drive to Patagonia Lake, and the kids LOVED seeing the horses and dogs on the property. We loved it and had a great weekend!

Very mixed feelings. Never saw host but once. A fellow camper was much more helpful. No one available to assist with questions I had. ex. where to dump manure, where was rv dump located, map of possible trails to ride, map of facilities etc.

Example of large cottonwoods along the many washes to ride.Riding down a wash close to stables.

Hidden gem! Irbinskas Stables and RV was a great location to set up to get away from the hustle and bustle. Great views, friendly host, close to winery/meadery, couldnt have asked for a better location.

This is the 3rd time we stayed here this year. Each stay was great. The camp site is easy to get to and the sites are well spaced out. We do not have horses but they are very pretty to admire. At night the stars are bright and you can hear the coyotes.

One item of note, be prepared to be greeted by the camp official hosts - Timber and Daisy. They are sweet and are available to help you dispose of dog bones or steak leftovers. I believe that since they do not have thumbs thwy have Heather handle all the communication via text/email.

We will certainly be back after the summer!
