Welcome to the
South Forty Ranch!
We are located about 20 miles north of Ash Fork, AZ in the Kaibab State Forest (about 40 miles south of the Grand Canyon).
Driving north from Ash Fork, you enter the Kaibab State Park on gravel road (State Road #142) through Diamond 7 Ranch grazing land, shallow canyons of flagstone cliffs and beautiful high prairie land. With mountain views both east and west, we are bordered by Federal Preserve and Navajo Reservation overlooking high prairie range with juniper trees at the corner of Scott's Bluff Trail and Winchester Road.
Welcome to the South Forty Ranch; 40 acres of dirt with a beautiful view...and we like it that way!
Far removed from modern day life, the South Forty Ranch is the epitome of the American West; unspoiled, untamed and unsettled...as it was one hundred years ago...and we like it that way! We have only "the very basic" of amenities; tanked in water, solar, wind and gas generated electricity and rather "rustic" bathing and toilet facilities (keeping with the ambiance of life on the open range), but we have wide open spaces where a man can think; virgin land where cowboys, Indians and settlers once roamed and "sounds of silence" like you've never heard before. It's a peaceful place; ideal to experience your western fantasy...campers and RV travelers welcome by advance reservation, one group at a time.
At the South Forty Ranch, we "customize" western adventure tours for small groups of families or friends. In close proximity to places like the Grand Canyon, Sedona, Flagstaff, Las Vegas and so many other western landmarks, the South Forty Ranch is the perfect place to escape for a few days and experience a unique adventure, totally customized to your preference of activities :
You pick up the tab, we'll customize the adventure. For those who require "comforts of home," basic facilities can be arranged (some limitations apply).
The "Best of the West" comes together at Winchester Road and Scott's Bluff Trail...The South Forty Ranch.
Time Share Opportunities
The South Forty Ranch (LLC) is planning construction of a modernized old west replica ranch house, bunk house, stable and corral on parcel #751. Private investors are welcome to inquire about participating in exchange for time share use of the South Forty Ranch facilities.
We plan to build a rustic ranch house as a "Community Center" and living quarters for the ranch custodian. Private time share bunk houses will be built adjacent to the ranch house for select investors to use as getaway housing. Stable and corral facilities will be available for those who enjoy equestrian activities.
