Tonto National Forest Ranches

Ranches that are permitted to use grazing allotments administered by the Tonto National Forest and have benefited from government assistance. The Tonto includes about 2,964,308 acres of public land, and despite being called a forest, about 27% of it, or 791,284 acres, is hot and rugged Sonoran Desert. (Additional ranches are added to this list as information becomes available.)

Visit the Arizona Public Land Ranches Home Page for information about ranches in other regions of the state.

The current boundaries of the Poison Springs allotment were set in 2017. The current allotment management plan (AMP) for the Poison Springs allotment was completed in 1987, when the allotment had a very different configuration. The Campaign allotment’s current AMP is the proposed action described in its 2011 EA. The previous 1992 AMP was funded by a grant from the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation as part of a mitigation plan for the local wildlife habitat flooded after the height of Theodore Roosevelt Dam was increased. Ranch manager John Fowler is a former president of the Gila County Cattle Growers Association. His business partner Leland “Bill” Brake was a member of the Arizona Game & Fish Commision, and the owner of the Rose Tree Ranch . Fowler and Brake are also co-owners of the nearby Rockin Four Ranch .
