You are welcome to Saddle Valley Ranch, which is located at the base of the Sylamore Range District in the Ozark National Forest. The Saddle Valley Ranch is a horse and RV camp that offers modern amenities and is situated just minutes from the Leathe.


Saddle Valley Ranch is open all year round. It is their goal to provide you with the most memorable stay of your life anywhere with their state-of-the-art facilities. You can also visit the beautiful Ozark Mountains in the area. Leatherwood Wilderness was created in 1984 in Ozark National Forest's Sylamore Range District and contains 16,838 acres. All roads leading to us are paved with only 2.5 miles of gravel roads. We are 15 miles south of Mountain Home and 20 miles north of Mountain View, AR.


Taking advantage of The Saddle Valley Ranch allows you to access The Lower Buffalo Wilderness area, a 22,500-acre tract adjacent to the leatherwood area. This wilderness area contains caves, bluffs, waterfalls, and old cabin sites. Located just below Saddle Valley Ranch, the White River forms the north and east boundaries of the Sylamore Range and is well known for its trout and bluffs, which are some of the best in the Ozarks. As a result, Saddle Valley Ranch's unique location offers guests an opportunity to enjoy these great wilderness experiences by hiking and horseback riding only from its unique and close proximity to this beautiful region.
