Circle Z Ranch is Arizona’s
Original Dude Ranch
Sharing the Traditions and Spirit of the Old West
The crackle of a campfire. The creak of a leather saddle. Rugged vistas without end. Welcome to Circle Z Ranch, a vacation experience that will envelop you in a time and place when days were spent on horseback and nights under a blaze of stars. Our all-inclusive Arizona dude ranch vacations are memorable experiences for our guests. Our historic ranch is nestled in Southern Arizona’s Sky Islands, known for its vast grasslands and vaulting mountain ranges. Guided by expert wranglers, you will explore trails across thousands of acres so scenic they’ve been the setting for many Western movies. Back at the ranch you can partake in other outdoor activities or join guests, fireside, in our colorful and spacious lodge. Meals are cooked from scratch using locally grown ingredients. With a maximum capacity of 36 guests, we pride ourselves in providing personalized experiences. This is ranch life at its best. An experience that keeps guests coming back time and time again.
