IMMERSE YOURSELF IN THE BEAUTY OF THE SONORAN DESERT IN ORACLE STATE PARK.
In 1902, Neil Kannally arrived in Oracle from Illinois for relief from tuberculosis. He homesteaded the land that would later become the park with family members joining him over the years. It was donated to the Defenders of Wildlife in 1976 and was later transferred to the State Parks Board. Since then, it has grown from its early days of cattle grazing to a popular hiking, biking, and learning experience.
Take a self-guided tour of the historic Kannally Ranch House, which was built 1929 – 1932 and reflects Mediterranean-Revival Style. While you’re here, hike the scenic trails and discover the plants and animals that call the area home while learning about the world they live in. There are programs for all ages and are led by trained park staff, ensuring you’ll gain the best knowledge while exploring the outdoors.
