Copper Cactus Ranch is an all-male clothing optional retreat catering to gay, bi, and straight men 21 years or older. We are located one hour east of Phoenix, hidden in the foothills of the Superstition Mountains next to Tonto National Forest and the famous Elephant Butte near Queen Valley, Arizona.

Direct route map links and downloadable directions from Phoenix, Tucson and Albuquerque are available below.

Please note: When using Google Maps or any GPS application powered by Google Maps, you must travel the route directly through the town of Queen Valley to reach the ranch.



4516 North Elephant Butte Road
Queen Valley, AZ, 85118

From the Phoenix area, drive east on 60 (about 40 miles from Central Phoenix). Continue East on 60 for another 2.1 miles, past the turn off for Florence. Turn left towards Queen Valley Road, just before the railroad tracks. 

Follow Queen Valley Rd for 3 miles, slight left turn onto N. Queen Anne Dr., then .8 miles to stop sign. Turn right at the stop sign onto Queen Valley Drive for about .17 miles to stop sign on N. Catherine St. which becomes N. Elephant Butte Rd.

Continue on to small dirt road (like you're driving beside the golf course) this is N. Elephant Butte Road, the road is rough for the first quarter mile but gets better. Follow Elephant Butte Rd left around the golf course, winding north for about 2.75 miles. Watch for rocks with the CCR Logo painted on them in white. We have also placed some blue ribbons that you can follow. Portions of the road are rough but passable in most passenger cars, we recommend you go slowly and proceed with caution to the green metal gate on the left.

Open our green metal gate, enter, then close the gate behind and continue to the ranch house at the end of the drive.

RV’s must stop at the first building and walk to office for check in.
