Its location within view of the magnificent Grand Canyon - in a beautifully secluded, remote area of the Western United States, 80 miles from the din of civilization - makes the Bar 10 Ranch an unparalleled destination point.
Built in 1982-1983, the Lodge serves as the centerpiece of the ranch for dining, relaxing, and sleeping. The Lodge interior creates an ambiance of the ‘Old West’ with antique wagon wheel chandeliers, pine wood lining, magnificent wood beams, and huge picturesque windows overlooking the Grand Canyon. Outside, the Lodge is finished with a masonry slump block and has a covered porch which invites one to a relaxing seat. Lush surrounding lawns offer either warming sunshine or shaded refuge, and more than a few guests have found that just wiling away the morning or late afternoon hours relaxing can satisfy one’s grandest expectations for a day well spent in the Grand Canyon.
Overnight accommodations include 13 Conestoga covered wagons with double mattresses (sleeps 2 comfortably). Each wagon is uniquely named after a historical wagon trail, displaying that trails heritage. They are equipped with an electric lantern, bedding, and a bench seat. Inside the Lodge, we have 5 rooms that are set up dormitory style with two sets of bunk beds (single bed on top with a double bed on bottom). These rooms are each named after well known cattle breeds in the West, and can accommodate couples or families nicely. The Lodge also has a 1,700 square foot deck, and has become a very popular place to sleep under the amazing starlight sky. We can accommodate 45 overnight guests comfortably, and with advanced notice, can arrange for groups as large as 60. We can easily accommodate much larger day groups, not requiring sleeping accommodations.

LOCATION / MAP
"Remote" describes it best. The Bar 10 Ranch is a working cattle ranch located nine miles from the north rim of the Grand Canyon, in the heart of the Parashant National Monument, on the fabled Arizona Strip, one of the most remote areas of the western United States. The ranch is 80 miles of dirt road from the nearest town which is St. George, Utah. High clearance vehicles can make the drive from St. George in about 2 to 2 1/2 hours. In inclement weather we recommend that you do not attempt to travel on the dirt road. Many of our customers choose to take a thirty-minute scenic flight from Las Vegas, Nevada to get to the ranch. The Ranch is fully self-sustaining leaving all public utilities and amenities--including power lines, oiled roads, and telephone lines--80 miles away. The Bar 10 generates its own power and is fed by one of the only springs on the Arizona Strip which provides the ranch with a constant supply of pure water.

Most of our customers arrive and depart the ranch via Whitmore International Airport (our nickname for the Bar 10 airstrip). This can be done by flying your own plane into the ranch, or utilizing our excellent charter service out of Las Vegas. The airstrip is 4,500 feet long and 33 feet wide. The north 4,000 feet is finished with a chip and seal surface, and the south 500 feet is only a dirt surface. The airport indicator for the airstrip is 1Z1, and the radio frequency used is 122.900. The airstrip slopes uphill (south to north), therefore most pilots land to the north and takeoff to the south. During the summer season up to 200 people can fly in and out of this airstrip daily for river rafting trips and scenic tours. We welcome private planes, but because of high traffic and safety we recommend you contact the Bar 10 office for reservations and additional information before landing at the ranch.
