Routes at Horseshoe Canyon are plentiful, allowing climbers of all abilities to challenge themselves. About the Area: Horseshoe Canyon Ranch is a fully-functioning dude ranch and vacation destination in Northwest Arkansas, near Jasper. The ranch is equipped with a lodge, barn, and cabins with cattle, horses and goats roaming around the grounds and through the campgrounds. Horseshoe has two campgrounds, located right under some of the best sandstone climbing in the region.
