Updated: 9 February 2017
The Grand Canyon Western Ranch was originally part of the Hualapai Native American nation. In the 1870s the Wellington Starkey family obtained the land. Their mission was to serve as a rest stop for weary travelers. The Starkey family later sold the ranch to George ‘Tap’ Duncan. Stories say Duncan rode with famed villain Kid Curry and the Hole in the Wall Gang. Folks also say Tap Duncan rode with the legendary outlaw Butch Cassidy.

The ranch’s main house is a rather intriguing place to sit for a cold strong drink and a hearty meal presented in a family style atmosphere. The dining hall is reminiscent of an old west saloon and chow house, right down to the rugged oak wood tables and sitting stools. While there Cowboy Casey L. Adams treats you to a rousing serenade. Casey is a legendary country/folk recording artist around these parts.

Meet the new general manager of the Grand Canyon Western Ranch, Robert Bravo. He has a lot of exciting adventures planned for vacationing guests.

This property is still today a working ranch with real cowboys and cowgirls, horses, cows, buffalo, goats and other critters. We found the folks here have genuine smiles and rugged fun attitudes when they greet folks. If real fun is your goal, they make it happen. The ranch is under new management. General Manager Robert Bravo (Hualapai Nation member) has grand ambitions for the property and the quaint and comfortable old west style wooden cabins and ‘glamping tents.

There are quaint and comfortable old west-style wooden cabins and ‘glamping tents.’ Yes, there are modern conveniences inside – indoor plumbing, a bathtub with a standup shower (in the cabins). Yet the spirit of the Grand Canyon Western Ranch is rustic. That means there is no Internet and cellular phone service is limited.
