Downs' Ranch Hide-Away
Nestled along KP Creek 35 miles down the Blue River on Forest Service Road 281 from Alpine lies one of Arizonan's hide away.
The Downs' Ranch Hide-Away, owned and operated by Bill and Mona Bunnell, steps you back in time to when life was simple. Mona, who is a life long resident of this ranch, provides cabins for people who are looking for a place to get away from the hectic pace of the city. Here a person can fish for trout on KP Creek, hike or ride trails on the Blue wilderness. Horses are available, or bring your own horses. Corrals are also available.
Hunt for big game such as elk, deer and bear, or just sit back and enjoy Arizona's finest nights of skies, full of stars. Peace and quiet one of life's little treasures is an everyday event, cottages are equipped with complete housekeeping (Cooking utensils, dinnerware, towels, bedding etc., but no maid service). Bring your own food. Call Mona for cost and availability before 7:00 a.m. and after 7:00 p.m.
