Marguerita Ranch

3 sites · Lodging, RVs, Tents2 acres · Cave Creek, AZ
Want to feel like you're in the middle of nowhere but be only 1 mile from town? Pitch your tent or park your camper among numerous towering Saguaro Cactus and stunning mountain views. Bring your camera or your horses! Perfect spot for relaxing, stargazing, and a fantastic view of the famous AZ sunsets! My 2.2-acre private horse ranch has mountain views in all directions, a large private campsite, and 8 rescue horses, 2 donkeys, and 5 pigs to meet and greet on the property. Please note we are located in a neighborhood so please respect the neighbors. There are hiking/horseback riding trails right off of my property that take you to the Spur Cross Conservation Area, or you can head 10 minutes north to the trailhead. The Black Mountain Hiking Trail is also awesome, you can see the whole valley from the top! Or, you can even ride your horses to the cowboy bars in town! Note: I have 2 spots available: 1 Campsite; 1 Glamping Trailer. I will try to block off campsites that are not in use after your booking in order to keep the site as private as possible. Wanting some adventure? Lake Pleasant, Bartlett Lake, Tonto National Forest, Seven Springs, and more are all just a easy drive from the ranch. Need to stock up on supplies? Walmart, Lowes, Home Depot, Tractor Supply and more are just a 10-minute drive. Want to explore a unique cowboy town? Cave Creek is an Old West-style town where it’s just as common to see horseback riders trotting along Main Street as it is to see a motorcycle cruising by. There is a variety of shops, restaurants, and great drinks. It's easy to find something you'll love! Please note that landscape varies depending on time of year and rain. There will be no green grass in the summertime. Tag us on instagram! @margueritaranch Horse corral (50 ft roundpen) available to rent at extra cost. Message me!!

The best camping near Tonto National Monument guide

Overview

About

Pack a picnic lunch and tour of some amazing cliff dwellings overlooking Theodore Roosevelt Lake in Arizona. Two cliff dwellings in the middle of the Sonoran Desert offered shelter to families for nearly 200 years. The nearby river provided a water source, a way to grow plants and a place for animals to drink water.

Access the lower cliff dwelling by taking the paved walkway. You can only get to the upper one when you go on a Ranger-led tour. Historians discovered that the Salado people created colorful pottery and woven cloth as part of their vibrant society.

The visitor's center gives you a good idea of what the Salado were like when they inhabited these cliff dwellings from 1250 to 1450. Bring good hiking shoes as the path to the upper cliff dwelling is rocky, on an incline and unpaved. Tall saguaro cacti, growing on the cliff side, serve as silent sentinels watching over the site.

Nearby rustic campsites let you stay near the cliff dwellings and the lake. Theodore Roosevelt Lake and the adjacent Tonto National Forest have great hiking, boating, fishing, and swimming. This National Monument and the public lands nearby are open year-round, although the cooler spring and fall months are ideal times to visit.
