Our exclusive Grand Canyon Ranch Resort boasts the only natural water springs on the west side of the majestic Grand Canyon. Archeological studies at the ranch carbon date human artifacts at between 1,600 to 1,700 B.C.
The springs were first used by early settlers. In the mid 1870s, Mormon covered wagon trains traveled the route through the ranch using the springs for camps and to replenish their exhausted water supplies after the long and hard journey from the east coast. After the Hualapai Indian war around 1860, gold miners moved in to the area and began building the roads to the ranch.
