About Fort McDowell Adventures

The Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation is a 950-member Native American tribe which calls Central Arizona’s upper Sonoran Desert home. Our tribe, which once roamed over 12 million acres, now owns just 24,000 acres in northeastern Maricopa County 35 miles from Phoenix/Scottsdale. Around 1985, in one of the many beautiful areas on our land, Fort McDowell Adventures was established and began hosting events for groups of all sizes.

Located away from city lights and two and a half miles into the Sonoran Desert, the landscape provides unparalleled views of mountain ranges during the day and bright stars at night.  At the start, The Stables at Fort McDowell were built to host trail rides, cattle drives and intimate cookouts. Soon after, Rosa’s Ranch venue was built to host groups of 50-200 for lunch and memorable dinner parties. Last to be constructed, our largest venue aptly named La Puesta del Sol grew to be the premier event venue in the Phoenix/Scottsdale Valley hosting up to 1,200 people for concerts and corporate events.

Present day, Fort McDowell Adventures has three premier special event venues hosting memorable corporate events, festive family reunions and chic country weddings. If that isn’t enough, FMA is the hub for numerous outdoor activities. You can take a horseback trail ride through the historic landscape, crossing the Verde River. If you need a little more horsepower, drive a UTV Tomcar through the desert to experience the 360 views of beautiful surroundings, or cruise through the cacti on a desert Segway for a one of a kind experience.
