The Best Arizona Dude Ranch Vacations

Located on a working cattle ranch nestled within the scenic Tonto National Forest, Cherry Creek Lodge invites you to experience the endless possibilities our 40,000+ acre Arizona guest ranch has to offer.

Pleasant Valley Ranch Arizona

A stay at Cherry Creek Lodge is so much more than a family vacation at a common Country Inn or Arizona dude ranch vacation. It is an authentic American Cowboy Ranch experience with modern comforts. Come as a guest and leave as friends. Rates include breakfast, lunch, dinner and one activity.

Working Dude Ranch Steeped in Arizona History


The story of Cherry Creek Lodge is the stuff of cowboy legends, which has been detailed in several books and the source of many movie plots. In fact, one of the gunfights during the Pleasant Valley War, an infamous range war that started with a dispute between the Graham and Tewksbury families, actually took place right on the ranch. We encourage you to visit our history page to learn more.
