Fort McDowell Adventures has entertained guests from around the world for more than twenty years. We specialize in private group events for corporate incentive dinners, product launches, sales meetings, and outdoor team building activities. We’ve hosted Fortune 500 companies, from Toyota to Hershey and local businesses alike.
Our four unique venues and two party buses can accommodate 10-2,000 guests for an unforgettable event. La Puesta del Sol is the ultimate Arizona venue with indoor/outdoor options and spectacular sunsets. Rosa’s Ranch features dining under the stars, cowboy games, and a beach oasis called da Rum Bus. The Boulder House in North Scottsdale is perfect for intimate dinner parties and receptions. After a scenic horseback ride or our City Slicker cattle drive, enjoy an authentic cowboy feast at our Stables cookout area.
We are located east of the Verde River on the beautiful Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation, just minutes from sunny Scottsdale, Arizona. Outdoor team building activities and events provide guests with spectacular mountain views, inspiring sunsets, and an off-property Arizona experience not found anywhere else.
The Society of Government Meeting Professionals of Arizona (SGNPAZ) enjoyed a beautiful evening at La Puesta and Fort McDowell Adventures in July, 2015.
The group was staying at the nearby WeKoPa Resort where we boarded open air Pink Jeeps for an exciting ride up to the La Puesta hilltop. On the way, we encountered 3 wild horses, several cows and a coyote crossed the road! Our jeeps arrived just before sunset to the impressive old adobe La Puesta building. Cheerful cowboys served prickly pear margaritas and an attractive buffet of colorful chips and homemade salsa and guacamole. The meeting planners were given a scenic tour of the La Puesta and Rosa’s House and surrounding buildings. This large open air Hacienda has the potential to host large or small groups. Our group of 47 enjoyed posing with the saguaro cactus, a horse & rider, the 560 foot fountain of Fountain Hills and enjoyed a fantastic sunset. I would highly recommend Fort McDowell Adventures for your outdoors event. This is Scottsdale best kept secret and a very special place with tons of Arizona atmosphere! The event staff was extremely friendly and accommodating and our group just loved the outdoor experience! I highly recommend Julie Solliday to coordinate your event.
Thanks for having SGMPAZ out to the beautiful Fort McDowell Adventures!
