Southern Arizona Guest Ranch

· Benson, Cochise, Arizona
30 acres hosted by Ron S.
Amazing views
Hipcampers say this spot has amazing views.
Once the ancestral home of the Apache, and boasting a rich cowboy and cattle ranching history,  to include gold mining, at Double R Guest Ranch we allow our gusts to relive some of that history and take a step back in time. The crackle of a evening campfire, the creak of a leather saddle, the sound of horses hooves underneath you as you explore the beautiful mountains of the ranch are what you can expect. Located in southern Arizona, our high desert vegetation features old growth mesquite forests, a variety of cactus such as the mighty Saguaro which is unique to our area. The ranch is surrounded by mountains offering spectacular views.

Animals and stars. Amazing.
Front row seat to beautiful dark skies, lots of enthusiastic and friendly dogs, at least one friendly cat and the horses. Friendly is the word.

Ron was a great host and very helpful! There were many dogs roaming around, but they were very friendly and only wanted scratches. It was a good location but coyotes and dogs were very loud through the night, so I didn't get as much sleep as I'd have liked.

Not private but neat location
Definitely off the beaten path. This is on an operating ranch down several miles of dirt road. Baby calves were running around as well as a groupnof dogs. The dogs showed up every time we ate, begging for food (they were obviously well fed). The outhouse has plumbing. I wish the site was more private. We were withing 30 feet of another occupied site. And the fireplace was shared, we got lucky the other campers weren't weird about that. The site is in full sun so summer camping would be rough.

I don’t like to leave negative reviews so I will just mention a few things I wish I would have known. 1) Not really pet friendly. Upon arrival I was told that one of the ranch dogs was not friendly with other dogs & that I would need to keep my dog leashed & separate from their dogs. This would not have been a problem except the other dogs roam the entire property- as they should- and more than one snapped or barked at my leashed dog. Luckily my dog is very well behaved & friendly so she didn’t snap back. I don’t blame the dogs for not wanting another dog on their property but this listing should not be described as pet friendly. I was constantly having to shoo the other dogs away & my dog was on alert the whole time & I had to spend the night in the car for her safety. 2) I paid for firewood but was told that because of the wind & dry conditions I wasn’t allowed to build a campfire. I don’t blame the host for the weather conditions but I was not refunded the money I paid for the wood. Some kind of warning about campfires being dependent on weather or even more to the point given the climate in the area- campfires unlikely- would have been useful. This was my daughter’s first camping trip & not being able to have s’mores was a big disappointment for her. 3) I had to clear my own camping area of dog poop, which was already there when we arrived, in order to set up. We didn’t receive the same hospitality others describe on here. Ended up leaving early.

Great, quiet spot and great host. We stopped through for only one night, but arrived too late to enjoy a campfire. Beautiful starry sky! We will definitely keep in mind if we ever pass through the area again and hope to stay longer.
