Near Saguaro National Park
Within a 30-minute drive from the Red Hills Visitor Center.
Our four acre property has a small guest studio and two dry campsites. Belmont Road is a mile long dirt road, but passable with any car or bicycle. The area is considered suburban ranch, so other homes on 3-4 acre lots are visible. Our land abuts Saguaro National Park West, 1/4 mile past the Belmont Trailhead. It is the only camping area on the readily accessible eastern side of Saguaro NP's west unit.

Crested Saguaro Ranchita
beautiful stay in the desert
I absolutely loved staying at Crested Saguaro Ranchita. The house is cozy and has everything one needs for a little getaway. I spent a lot of time out on the patio enjoying the magnificent desert views. The park is a short walk over so very convenient for those looking to hike. Vincent is a wonderful host and provided lots of info about the plants and wildlife in the area. Would definitely stay here again!

Vince is a generous and helpful host! Beautiful desert scape. Finding the site with apple maps is not recommended!

Greatly enjoyed our stay!
We had an absolutely wonderful 6 week stay at the Ranchita. The owners, Vince and Terry, were warm, welcoming, and very helpful. We loved that their property was next to the boundary of Saguaro National Park to hike one of the many beautiful trails any time we desired. Many afternoons were spent on the porch being entertained by the coyotes, Gambels quails, doves, rabbits, squirrels and admiring the beautiful desert flora when not out and about visiting all the other attractions Tucson has to offer. The Ranchita was perfect for our needs since we usually travel the country in our campervan and appreciate simplicity. My husband has mobility issues and has a difficult time with stairs so it was especially welcome that there were none. Vince is working on many projects to improve the property so would love to see the finished product someday.

Great stay
Area was well-kept and relatively secluded yet close to town. The property abuts a reserve with many fine trails. Vincent has firsthand knowledge of many of the surrounding trails and is glad to lend his expertise. Tenting was good!

Crested Saguaro Ranchita
Vincent and Terry were wonderful hosts. They are very kind and accommodating. The property is very pretty with lots of flowers and birds in the spring. The Casita is simple, but had everything I needed for a couple night stay. Thanks so much for everything Vincent and Terry.
