About Circle Z Ranch

Located on thousands of acres of the most scenic horseback riding in Southern Arizona. The Circle Z Ranch offers all inclusive ranch vacations; 3 delicious meals/day, horseback riding, tennis, game room, outdoor pool, hiking, bird watching, campfires, cookouts, nature walks and guided star gazing.

There are accommodations for singles, couples and families, and our cottages are furnished in colorful southwestern decor. You will find all the comforts of home with new mattresses, individually controlled heat and air conditioning, and private entrances.

Our horseback riding program is well known for the diversity of trails and excellent horses. Many of our horses are bred and trained right here on the ranch, and our expert wranglers will guide you along hundreds of miles of horseback riding trails. You will explore lush riparian areas, beautiful canyons, high mountain tops and high grass valleys. The Sky Islands of Southern Arizona are among the most diverse in the world, supporting hundreds of species of birds, animals, and plant life.

We have hosted families for reunions and anniversaries, couples seeking a new adventure, and singles who like to explore the beauty of the desert. The social fabric of our ranch runs deep, as we have entertained generations of guests from around the world. You will be welcomed by a friendly and eager staff, and will quickly become a part of the Circle Z family. Come and join us for an old-time, but not old fashioned, dude ranch vacation.
