Recreation

Camelback Golf
From the mind of world-renowned golf course architect Arthur Hills comes a course that promises an enjoyable and unforgettable golf adventure. The Padre Course features towering trees, subtle landforms and impressive bunkering to sharpen your game. This 6,903-yard, par 72 design is known for its strategic layout, challenging water holes, and had its 18th hole voted the best water hole in the state by Arizona Golf Magazine.


Horseback Riding
Travel along with our knowledgeable cowboy and cowgirl guides along the picturesque wilderness trails of Arizona. We'll take you where civilization is a faint memory and yet still have you back in plenty of time for our Network dinner.






Desert Jeep Tour
Climb aboard our rugged 4-wheel drive, open-air jeeps and Blazers for the "western experience" of a lifetime. Witness the awesome grandeur of the Sonoran Desert as your friendly Cowboy guides gently bounce your group through a maze of cactus-lined trails and desert riverbeds. Your guides will spin yarns of the Old West and teach you the survival techniques used by our Native American Indians centuries ago.


City Slickers Cattle Drive
Head 'em up! Move 'em out! This authentic Western adventure will satisfy the cowboy in every heart. Fulfill your Wild West dreams in the mountainous terrain of the rugged desert landscape. Accompanied by an experienced wrangler, you’ll follow the trails on horseback in search of wayward cattle on the authentic cattle drive through the Sonoran desert. Become a cowhand for the day and ride the open range to your heart’s content.


Funwater Float River Rafting
Paddle your way down a river teaming with spectacular wildlife and fantastic desert landscape. Not to worry -- this is a flatwater river adventure, perfect for all, from beginner to expert. You and your crew paddle in our guided raft under the guidance of our professional guides. The only requirement being everyone is ready to have an exciting fun filled river adventure.



The Camelback Spa
The Spa at Camelback Inn offers the indulgences of a full-service destination spa with the ambiance and magic of the Sonoran Desert. Panoramic views of crimson-hued Camelback and Mummy mountains, fiery Arizona sunsets, and the picturesque, desert landscaping can be enjoyed from the Olympic size lap pool after your one-of-a-kind spa treatment inspired by the techniques and nature-based ingredients of indigenous Native American cultures.
