Camping at the Ranch
When your group size is larger than 28 people, in addition to the main house rental, we can provide space for camping.
We allow Class B & C RVs at the Ranch - truck campers, pop-up campers and travel trailers under 20 feet.
Because of the potential hazards of crossing the bridge and creek, the steep grades coming into the Ranch and the lack of adequate space
we can not accommodate Class A RVs (conversions, motor homes, buses, 5th wheels, etc.)
The charge for RVs is $35 per person, per night.
Tent camping is $15 per person, per night.

Note to friends of Aravaipa Canyon Ranch: As many of you know, our rates remained the same for 16 years. Due to water rights, ranch maintenance and the desire to sustain your ability to return for many years to come, we are needing to raise our rates. We believe this is a modest and expected increase and hope you will understand the necessity.
