Ranch History

The late Tony Heaton, and his wife, Ruby, were the original founders of the Bar 10 ranch, and their four boys and two girls have been actively involved in cattle ranching and building the ranch since the early 1970s. The family has been ranching on the Arizona Strip for five generations.

The Heatons decided to accommodate the many tourists running the Colorado River in rubber rafts and used the dirt airstrip almost daily to fly river guests into and out of the river. That first year in the mid 1970s, the Heatons' efforts ferried just 125 people, but by 1983 they were seeing 1,000 people per summer!

The family decided to build a lodge and later they added Conestoga Wagons to provide additional, private sleeping. In 1985, the Heatons introduced the helicopters and quickly saw the numbers of visitors to the Bar 10 Ranch increase to 6,000 per season.
