May 7, 2018 - Dewey, AZ - Orchard Ranch RV Resort

Our trip down from Williams to Dewey, AZ (just south of Prescott and Prescott Valley) consumed 79 miles, about a third of it on I-40 in the snow before we reduced our elevation, got out of the snow, and turned south on AZ-89. The next day after getting here we made a trip to our original destination to see what was going on. Apparently this site was a new installation and still needed inspection and a permit issued. The Yavapai county office is way behind and will not give a time estimate for the permit issue (which normally takes about two...

Apr 24, 2013 - Prescott Valley, Arizona

We moved up to Dewey-Humboldt, a small town near Prescott Valley, on the 17th of April. So, we will be here until at least May 16th. Before leaving the Valley of the Sun, we took time to visit the Desert Botanical Gardens with the Butterfly Gardens in Phoenix, the Williams- Boyce Arboretum State Park and the Bartlett Lake Recreation Area (part of the Tonto National Forest) north of Phoenix in the Cave Creek area. Nice things to see in both, and some pretty easy hiking in the latter. We also went to the Arizona Opry in Apache Junction with...

Where RV Now?

Aug 25, 2009 - Arrived

Hi We are now back in Dewey after a good journey from the UK, at least we did not get held up at Passport Control in Phoenix. We then had an 80 mile drive to Dewey where the RV was stored it was dark when we arrived so trying to get it out of storage and set up on the site with a small torch and the headlights on from the rental car was all part of the fun. It started first time which was a great relief, have yet to get the car out of storage hoping that will also start okay. We will stay here about 3 nights to getted sorted out before we...

Jul 18, 2009 - Last Entry This Trip

We have been busy packing up ready to come home. Cleaning the RV & Car to put into storage. It is actually been stored on the campsite we have been staying at. We have been out a few times while staying here, but not very far. Just enjoying a few relaxing days by the pool and with friends we have made. We thought it was going to be cooler here but temps have reached 111. It is unusual for it to be so hot here. We have been having terrific thunder and lightning, but you don't always get the rain. We drove out to Lynx Lake one afternoon where...

Jul 14, 2009 - Dewey-Arizona

We were up really early again today, as we had a long journey ahead of us, we travelled over 300 miles to Dewey in Arizona it is about 12 miles from Prescott. We are spending the last days of our trip here, quite a bit to see in the area although some of it we have seen when we were out here 2 years ago, we were then touring round in a rental car and staying in Motels. It took us nearly 8 hours, we stopped once to eat and once to get diesel, we were only 60 miles away when we had to change course as there was a warning on the road not to...

Jul 2, 2008 - Life at the "ranch"

Update Orchard Ranch RV Park 6_30_2008 We left home on Saturday June 28th for a month stay at Orchard Ranch RV Resort in Dewey, AZ. Dewey is located on AZ Highway 69 just south of Prescott Valley.
