Covered Wagons Tours
Covered Wagon Tours is an experience of Adventure, Entertainment, and Delicious BBQ. The Good Old Days are still here!
Hop aboard for a one-of-a-kind western adventure and Sonoran Desert Eco Tour. Ride into scenic canyons that are part of a 32,000-acre oasis wilderness preserve. This is all from the comfort of our open-air, Covered Wagons! Your naturalist guide and wagon driver will entertain and expound on the plant life, wildlife, Native American and Pioneer History and the geology of this “San Andreas Fault” created wilderness. A guided nature walk is also included and optional!
Return to camp with the smell of dinner cooking and to live-western music. Enjoy the sounds of classic American Cowboy Country, desert- folklore originals and sweet campfire songs. Continue the fun, with a line dance and or our old-fashioned partner dance, known as, “The Barn Dance”! This is a favorite amongst our guests! If you suffer with two left feet, and dance is not for You, then try your luck at a game of horseshoes, cornhole or cowboy style roping.
Experience the glow of the desert sun sinking behind the San Jacinto Mountains while enjoying a catered chuckwagon- style BBQ dinner. Indulge in Smoked Brisket or Tri-Tip, BBQ Chicken, served with all the classic trimmings. Guests are welcome to sit inside our desert-style barn or outside, along the desert’s edge of our scenic, Sonoran patio. After dinner, enjoy seasonal pie with whipped cream. Round off the evening, roasting marshmallows beside a glowing campfire, under a stary sky.

An incredible experience!
Our family had an absolutely fantastic time on the covered wagon adventure and BBQ. The covered wagon ride was so much fun and allowed for some amazing views of the surrounding desert and Oasis. The live music and dancing were SO MUCH fun!! The cowboy style meal was delicious. This was a truly unique and entertaining experience that I would highly recommend.
Today was so much fun!
Today was so much fun! Loved so many things. The Lemonade, Hot Chocolate , brisket and PIE! A brand new experience seeing the "story" that is the desert. Overarching all of this is the quality Owners and Staff. Personable, welcoming, helpful and generous.
The food was really good
The food was really good, the history about the Wild West and cowboys was great. John Hemp the singer had a gray selection of songs. Annie's Wild West show with whips and ropes and guns was fabulous. Lots of fun and there is desert!!
Great family experience
We’ve been coming to the desert for a long time and always looking for something different to entertain the whole family. We FOUND it. What a great experience. We were greeted and welcomed as soon as we got out of the car.
Awesome experience! The wagon ride was interesting & fun, the activities were were great, & the food was superb! Add to that a fun & friendly staff & you get an experience to fondly remember. I highly recommend this.
