Aravaipa Farms Orchard and Inn is located 120 miles southeast of Phoenix and just 70 miles northeast of Tucson via Oracle Road.
From Phoenix: Take SR 60 East toward Superior. At Superior take Highway #177 to Winkelman. Turn right onto SR 77 in Winkelman. Proceed 10 miles South to mile marker #124. From there (at sign for Central Arizona College) turn left onto East Aravaipa Road.
From Tucson: Take SR 77 North toward Oracle, Mammoth and Winkelman. Proceed 10 miles North of Mammoth to mile marker 124. Turn right onto East Aravaipa Road (at sign for Central Arizona College).
From the turn off you are seven miles plus 100 yards from our entrance. The first four miles are paved but the final section (3 miles) will be a well maintained dirt road so proceed with caution.
You will see “Aravaipa Farms” posted on a tall rusty sign at the top of our driveway next to the mailboxes. From there you can see the orchard, the creek, and much of the farm. Proceed down the steep driveway, turn right and cross the creek. Open the gate (please close it behind you), and proceed through the orchard to the Casitas on the other side. Please check in at the Tree House casita, under the big Tamarisk tree.
Note: Creek flow varies but it’s generally only 6” – 12” deep at our crossing and the roadbed is rock, sand and silt. Four-wheel drive is recommended but not required. However, after rain, during rain or whenever rain is in the forecast, please call ahead to be sure the creek can be safely crossed. We can shuttle you across if there is any question, but we will never risk anyone’s safety in the process. We are generally closed to the public during peak rainy seasons, nevertheless we may still occasionally experience flooding that makes the creek uncrossable. The chance of this happening to our guests in season is remote but we will warn you in advance of any risk.
