There is so much to do at Cherry Creek Lodge! Buried deep within the Tonto National Forest, guests are able to experience the full natural beauty of the Arizona highlands.
Whether you feel like strapping on a pair of jeans and cow boy boots and hopping in the saddle of one of our beautiful horses, flying around in our four wheelers or venturing out on your own for a hike, you'll take in the Arizona wilderness like never before.
Feel like experiencing rustic Arizona but don't want to leave the comfort of the lodge? You don't have to! There is plenty to do right outside our front door including fishing on Lake Sharon (watch out the fish bite like piranha!) or practicing your archery or shotgun skills.
Individual Activity Costs
Horse Back Riding and ATV/Jeep Tours*
There are additional charges for horseback riding, and an advance reservation of horses is preferable.
Guests are welcome to bring their own horses – an advance reservation of a stall or room in one of the corrals is preferable. There is a stabling charge of $25 per day, (two flakes of hay included). If you do decide to bring your own horse, please be aware that many of the trails around the lodge are very rocky and may not be suitable for horses with delicate feet, some trails require crossing running water, and some trails include relatively steep slopes.
Sporting Clays & Archery*
Sporting Clay and Archery Club Memberships receive substantial discounts.
Gratuities to the staff for excellence in service, while entirely discretionary, are welcome.
Average temperatures do tend to vary at the lodge over the year, giving us a very temperate climate compared to most of Arizona. The lodge receives a dusting of snow each year, but has seen up to three feet of snow before! Temperatures reach just over 100° in the summer. Please be sure to pack correctly for the season. Below is a chart from the Arizona Game & Fish Department with yearly averages.
