Willow Creek Ranch lies halfway between Kingman and Seligman Arizona (35 miles from each) north and south of Interstate 40 at 5000 to about 5800 feet elevation. The elevation creates an ideal, mild year-round climate, cooler than Kingman and the deserts to the west and south and warmer than snowy Flagstaff at nearly 7000 feet to the east. Elevation is one of the secrets that makes Willow Creek Ranch a great place to live — retire, homestead, be self-sufficient, vacation, hunt, ride horses or ATV’s for all or part of the year!
The parcel size, the rugged topography, and the fact that the area is heavily treed with juniper & pinon pine and scrub oak add to the feeling of seclusion. The land is hilly and rough with streams and canyons and incredible hilltop vistas; perfect for exploring on foot, ATV or by horseback. Prices for 36 acre parcels start at about $25,000 and many owners will carry a note with a good down payment.
