When you hear of a dude ranch, images of cowboys on horseback and rugged outdoors come to mind. Cherry Creek Lodge is an authentic dude ranch, serving as a premier vacation destination in the heart of the Tonto National Forest.
We treat our guests like family and greet them with welcome baskets when they arrive filled with thoughtfully curated seasonal local products. We always have the coffee on and tea ready to brew in our bar when you need a cup of pick-me-up.
Aside from our thrilling experiences, lodge activities change with the seasons, depending on the time of year and the weather. These can range from various arts and crafts to learning how to be more self-sustainable. We pride ourselves in running a self-sufficient lodge that mostly thrives off the grid. We love letting our guests experience how we sustainably operate our grounds while wasting as little as possible.
