We stayed in a building that looks like it used to a barn converted into units. Ours was a one bedroom, one bathroom, living room, and kitchen downstairs unit. It was clean and economical, but more importantly, it was across the street from Doc Campbell's Post where they sell the best and creamiest ice cream anywhere! We went back 3 times in 24 hours and tried the coconut, vanilla, and strawberry flavors, WOW! Also, my daughter and I drove 1/4 of a mile and soaked in some natural hot springs for a few bucks per person. It was very secluded; the two of us were the only ones there. We walked around the RV park and saw horses and other animals there. Our younger daughter had a fever and there is no store that sells children's Tylenol or Advil or any other fever reducer anywhere! There was also no doctor, clinic, or hospital until you go down the hill which was over an hour's drive away. Gila Hot Springs Ranch desk clerk directed us to a local resident who has a little medical training and took a look at my daughter. More importantly, she had an extra children's Tylenol that our daughter could take to get rid of her fever!
