Located just 20 miles outside historic Wickenburg, Arizona, Robson's Ranch & Mining Camp is one of the oldest and best preserved original mining claims in Arizona. This truly unique spot is surrounded by the second largest Saguaro cactus forest in Arizona and encompasses some of the most extensive Yavapai Apache petroglyphs in the state.

The first claim to mine on the vast property was in 1917 when the Wesley Rush family operated what was then called the Gold Leaf Mine. In 1924, the mine changed hands to Ned Creighton who renamed it the Nella-Meda Mine in honor of the Rush daughters. Operation continued for 18 years until the U.S. Government closed down all gold mines. The mine engineer and caretaker, Harold mason, eventually took over the property until his death in 1979, when Charles and Jeri Robson, restored many of the buildings and added additional facilities including the Hotel. Western Destinations acquired the property in 2009.
