Jeep or other 4x4 vehicle is a MUST to fully appreciate this rugged Ranch area. This is true camping in the remote wilderness. It's NOT "glamping". This area is part of the old Wild West. The Ranch remains in pristine natural conditions with well-maintained (yet rough and rugged) Access Roads and our Jeep Ranch Pet-Friendly Camping and Boondocking Area melds with the vast landscape. The rugged County Roads (CR) are perfect for navigating on Jeeps or other 4x4 vehicles. Please obey the local speed limits and do not trespass on Private Properties and no hunting at the Jeep Ranch. Adding to the adventure, the area has a rich history of Native American (Apache, Navajo, Zuni, etc.) culture. Ranchers in the area have found Anasazi Indian artifacts (pottery shards, spear points, and arrowheads, etc. from Anasazi settlements over 1,000 years ago).
Our Jeep Ranch is located in NorthEast Arizona's High-Country (6000+ elevation) and close to New Mexico Border near Highway 40 and off Highway 191 in Apache County between Sanders and Saint Johns and approximately 10-Miles West of Witch Wells Tavern on County Road (CR) 7230. The Jeep Ranch is located in an area that is rugged, rough, sunny, cool, and dry most of the year and is perfect for safe 4x4 Jeep travel (Boondocking in vehicle and or tent camping) with your family and dogs. At our Pet-Friendly Jeep Ranch, there are plenty of hiking trails, running tracks, Jack Rabbits, and other fun items for your dogs. The rugged roads and the remote location favor navigating in your Jeep or in other 4x4 vehicles. Please obey the local speed limits and do not trespass on Private Properties and no hunting at the Jeep Ranch. This is true camping in the wilderness. It's NOT "glamping".
Bring your Jeeps, extra tanks of gas/diesel, winch, shovel, air compressor, tents, camping gear, cases of drinking water, food, grill, gas, mosquito and bug spray, Animal Repellent Pepper Sprays (Bear Spray), sun-screen cream, generator, etc. along with your sense-of-adventure. Bring EVERYTHING that you will need for a rugged camping adventure. Safety First. This is true camping in the wilderness. It's NOT "glamping". Travel with your children, your dogs, and your friends. Run your Generator day or night, setup your solar panels, Grill-out, play with your dogs off-leash, let your dogs bark at the jack rabbits and howl at the moon, watch the night sky, take videos and pictures of your dogs, the wild life in the area, and capture the journey of your Jeep and of your family.
