There is a new horse camp located at the base of the Santa Catalina Mountains next to the historical 3-C Ranch near Oracle. The HCR-AZ at the 3-C Ranch is the second horse camp owned by Doug and Jody Lindgren of Nemo, S.D. Nemo is located in the Black Hills about 12 miles south east of Deadwood. Doug and Jody have owned Hay Creek Ranch for eight years and were ready to enjoy winter in the Southwest. They were looking for a place to ride horses in the winter when the Black Hills are covered with snow and the average low temperatures in December, January and February are in the 20s.

Doug and Jody visited the Oracle area last winter and liked it so much they decided to buy a house here and open up another horse camp. “We really felt welcome and at home here,” said Doug. “One of the main reasons we decided to move down here, was that the people were so friendly, it’s also beautiful country.”

Hay Creek Ranch-Arizona at the 3-C Ranch is an RV camp ground with horse facilities. The camp ground is on the back road to Mt. Lemmon with magnificent views of the Galiuro and Santa Catalina mountain ranges. There are many horse trails and hiking trails in the area. These were once the home to many ranches and mines. HCR-AZ can also provide friendly guides to escort you through the beautiful desert and mountains that surround the area. The Arizona Trail is nearby. If a person doesn’t own a horse and wants to ride, gentle horses and tack are available for riding.

Hay Creek Ranch-Arizona has 12 full service RV spaces that are 40 by 120 pull-thru sites with hookups for electricity, water and sewer. There is also plenty of space available for dry camping. The horse camp has covered corrals, a stable, tack room, arena, bathrooms with showers, laundry facilities, full kitchen, community room (hacienda) and guest houses. The 500 acre 3-C Ranch has hosted the likes of President Richard Nixon and 1930s actress Mae West. The ranch is also a great venue for weddings, reunions and other events. All the facilities are open to the public not just horse owners. “We would like people to come out to the area and see what we have to offer,” Doug said.

They can be reached by mail at HCR-AZ Horse Camp, Doug and Jody Lindgreen, PO Box 5624, Oracle, AZ 85623. Visit their website to learn about both Hay Creek Ranches at www.haycreekranch.net.
