Comfortable and friendly as family, the Kay El Bar Ranch in Wickenburg, Arizona, is an authentic western dude ranch in the foothills of Arizona's Bradshaw Mountains. Located an hour from Phoenix, four hours from the Grand Canyon and four hours from Las Vegas. One of Arizona's first dude ranches, the Kay El Bar has welcomed guests since 1926.
Our endless horseback riding trails through the Sonoran Desert could take you cantering up a desert wash, climbing rocky ridges for mountain views, or ambling along gentle foothill trails. Our extraordinary rides through the timeless Arizona desert can accommodate equestrians (and cowboys) of all skill levels.
Located on the banks of the usually dry Hassayampa River under towering salt cedar and eucalyptus trees, the Kay El Bar is on the National and Arizona Registers of Historic Places. Our dude ranch surrounds guests with thick-walled adobe dwellings where each room is a cowboy postcard of charm, character and comfort. Our informal, relaxed atmosphere and small size (maximum capacity 24) create a warm, intimate environment where western vacationing guests are quickly part of the family.
