Iron Quail Ranch is a modern off-grid homestead and meat goat ranch. The ranch lies in the center of Avra Valley, Arizona on historic farm and ranch land which has gradually been managed to return to its natural state of mesquites, ironwoods, cacti, and natural grasses. The ranch sits beautifully positioned between Saguaro National Park and Ironwood Forest National Monument. At Iron Quail Ranch we offer you a private and secure RV or tent campsite on 15 acres adjoining over 200,000 acres of public lands. There are unobstructed views of Saguaro National Park (West) and a private entrance into Ironwood Forest National Monument. There is abundant wildlife thriving in the riparian watershed on the property. There is easy access to both National parks from the property via ATV/UTV, car/truck, or even horseback. The level campsites can fit everyone from a tent camper up to 40-foot RVs. There is good cell phone reception on all major carriers at the property. Potable water, a sewer dump station, an outdoor kitchen, and a modern outhouse are available on the property. 120v electric charging stations are also available to recharge your small portable electronic devices.

Disconnecting at Quail Ranch
Our weekend getaway at this secluded spot was absolutely perfect. Our host, Michael, was incredibly accommodating and made sure we had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. His extensive knowledge of the land and its history added an extra layer of depth to our experience. The well-equipped outdoor kitchen was perfect for our family, and we enjoyed many delicious meals together under the stars. The clean and well-maintained bathroom was a bonus. We were able to fully disconnect from the hustle and bustle of daily life and reconnect with nature and each other. The peace and quiet allowed us to fully relax and recharge. We will always treasure this wonderful weekend getaway. Bella was such a sweet and smart dog! Can't wait to visit again! Thank you, Michael!

We loved our stay at Michaels! The camping set up was perfect for us. The bathroom and other shared spaces were very clean and awesome to have while camping. Michael was very quick to respond to anything we needed. Would definitely return to this spot!

Best spot on Tucson to camp
Wow What an amazing place to stay This was by far the nicest and cleanest place I have stayed on mu journey thus far. The bathroom was very nice and clean. Water pressure and heat were also great! The camping spot was quiet and had a cover over a picnic table. The fire pit was perfect for a relaxing evening. The host meets you at the gate and is very friendly and respectful. I can't wait to come back again! So close to the Saguaro Natl Park as well and best sunset and sunrise ever.

What a great experience! We loved this place. It’s peaceful and tranquil and very close to Saguaro National Park. Very well kept area including the bathroom. Host Michael is very friendly, and will give you good tips on places to visit if you ask him. Cannot recommend it enough!

John and I had a wonderful time in Marana at Michaels. The site was huge and nowhere near any other campers. This is kind of what you would say is high desert, so there aren’t a lot of trees. But there is foliage all Around. Michael also raises goats on his property. We were not right next to them, but we’re definitely able to see them playing and just being goats. Something we never do in Phoenix that’s for sure. The campsite Kitt was very large and it made it very easy with our trailer because it is a pull through. We had more room than we needed for us and our two dogs. Michael has put up a beautiful Ramada at the site with a picnic table. There is a fire pit and we did buy wood from Michael but did not use it because it was a little too breezy at night. We also ordered one half dozen fresh Farm eggs, which was quite a treat for us. I had never had them before. When we arrived, The eggs were there, the wood for the fire , as well as a shovel and a watering can with water in it to put out the fire. He has thought of everything but kept saying if we needed anything just don’t hesitate to ask. we won’t be able to go back again until fall. But we most certainly are looking forward to going back for our second stay. Also, there is plenty of room and trails for walking and especially biking. We’re bringing our bikes next time. We definitely recommend going to Iron Quail Ranch.
