Where Families Come Together!


 



Sprucedale Guest Ranch is a scenic treasure for those who want to get away from the chaos of daily life and have a great time!

Sprucedale Guest Ranch is a glimpse of heaven on earth. This family-owned, working ranch provides all the ingredients for good old-fashioned family time. Pull on your boots, and mount a horse for a thrilling ride through pine covered mountains flowing with trout-filled streams. Gather your children and friends to play games, to learn a new western dance, and to sing around the bonfire as you roast marshmallows and swap stories. When the dinner bell rings, come sit together to home cooked, country-style meals that make you smile inside and out. And when you’re finally worn out from having fun, and your belly is full, circle the chairs on your cabin porch, stretch out your legs, and watch a million stars flicker their approval on the day you spent reconnecting with those you love. Welcome to Sprucedale!

We would love to have you visit soon!

“Enjoy three country-cooked meals, more stars than black sky at night, lightning storms, porch comfort, log cabin comfort, cowboy style horse rides, cattle round-ups, pure isolation, and the love of the Wiltbank host family. Life-impacting.”

“Sprucedale Guest Ranch is a great place to go and unwind, let kids play in the dirt (as opposed to being on screens all day), see wildlife, ride horses, meet great people, and recharge your batteries. Unexpected benefits include seeing the stars, breathing clean air, and you can actually hear the wind when it blows. You won’t regret one minute at SGR, but you will regret not going sooner!”

“I used to visit Sprucedale yearly when I was a kid. I have been twice in the last three years, and it is even better now than I remember. This year I got several species of trout and saw a herd of over 100 elk just minutes from my cabin. So much to do and such incredible scenery to take in that you hardly notice the fact that you are unplugged from the rest of the world. The staff is so nice and helpful and the food gets better every year. If you are looking for a vacation for you and your kids, this is the place.”

Sprucedale is located deep in the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest; 14 miles from Big Lake, and 12 miles from highway 191. Homesteaded on over 80 acres of private land, the Ranch consists of a large main lodge, 13 guest cabins, workers quarters, barns, corrals, a playground, a dance porch, and a frog pond; all tucked in a beautiful green valley surrounded by pines and split by the curved banks of Beaver Creek—a meandering stream of clear water full of crawdads and minnows.

The rustic cabins are historical and full of character. All have bathrooms, and most consist of two other rooms, three beds, a table and chairs, and a wood stove. They sleep from three to seven adults. The beds and bedding are recently upgraded to provide a comfortable night’s rest, and each cabin has a front porch with an amazing view.
Everything about Sprucedale from horse rides, games, activities, and meals are centered around having fun together and enjoying a stress-free vacation.

It Runs in the Family…

Sprucedale was purchased by Walter and Faye Wiltbank in 1941, and is the oldest continually operated guest ranch in Arizona. Passing from father to son, the family business was built on a strong foundation of honesty, hard work, and a love for country life—a tradition that continues today as the ranch is managed and operated by the third and fourth generations of the Wiltbank family.
