This old ranch house, lake and walking paths is great for families (bring your lunch) and bird watchers. Best to see it when the river has water. $5 is a reasonable fee.

There are several walk. We did two of them. Not too long and beautiful as they wind along the river. We were utterly alone with nature. And the main desk person was enormously helpful. Must say this: Being city dwellers, it took us awhile to determine that the large piles of poop near the trail were herbivore (cow), not carnivore... More

An excellent place to take a short hike, and you love bird watching, this is the place to go. It is on the migratory path of many birds.

Lots of wildlife including birds and rabbits as well as grazing cattle. I really enjoyed the scenic views and peaceful river.

I have been driving by this place for years and have never bothered to stop...what a mistake on my part. My wife and I walked around for several hours just taking in the surroundings. The Hassayampa river was not much of a river today, but evidence suggests it can get rather large. Take a camera, don't miss the photo ops.... More

I went later in the afternoon so beware they close early in the dessert foe obvious reasons. I think as early as 11am.

The hikes are very easy and shady. Although they follow the river, it was quite dry during our visit. They offer hiking sticks and binoculars for use during the hikes. We didn't see any wildlife and very few birds, but it was super hot and mid-day when we went.
