Bison Ranch Family Retreat

Joni and Friends Arizona is excited to unveil our newest Family Retreat site in Overgaard Arizona. Bison Ranch is located 2.5 hours northeast of Phoenix in Arizona’s Rim Country and sits adjacent to the Sitgreaves National Forest. This newly renovated resort has been turned into a beautiful retreat center where folks can get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. With a catch and release pond and several other outdoor amenities every family will be sure to find some relaxation and family time. The Arizona leadership team is eager to serve and encourage families affected by disabilities in this scenic setting. If you have time to stay a few extra days after the retreat, Pinetop, Show Low and Black Canyon Lake are just a few minutes away.
