The village of Concho, Arizona is located in Apache County at the northern edge of the White Mountains Recreational Area of eastern Arizona. Concho was one of the first communities founded in the area by pioneers from Spain and from Utah.
Because Concho is off the beaten path, the village has been able to keep its small town atmosphere while the residents are still close enough to larger towns to take advantage of their activities and businesses. The tourist attractions and business districts of Show Low, Lakeside and Pinetop are just a pleasant 30 minute drive away.
Located on Highway 61 in Apache County, the village of Concho was originally settled in the 1800s by New Mexican sheepherders of Basque descent. In the early part of the 1900s, Mormon pioneer families came from Utah to settle in the Concho Springs area and the two diverse cultures blended into a unique community. The population today is about 900 persons in the combined village area of Old Concho and Concho Valley.
Concho Lake is a seasonal 80 acre spring-fed reservoir with camping facilities and is stocked annually with rainbow trout. There are over 40 other fishing lakes and streams in the White Mountains and on the Apache reservation. Hon-Dah Casino, Sunrise Ski Resort, hiking trails and many archeological sites are within an easy 40 minute to 2 hour drive from town. The Petrified Forest is 40 minutes away and the Grand Canyon is just a little over 3 hours away.
Concho enjoys mild four seasons at an altitude of 6200'. The area offers great weather, a clean and healthy rural lifestyle, affordable property, and access to a wide range of recreational opportunities. Sports enthusiasts appreciate the close proximity to world-class fishing and hunting available on state, federal and Indian reservation land. Due to the large number of sunny days, good soil and an exceptionally clean water source, the properties around Concho are attracting families and active retirees looking for an eco-conscious lifestyle.
Within the village area, there are ¼ to 20 acre lots with a variety of mobile home subdivisions and site-built home neighborhoods. A large portion of these lots offer views of Concho Lake, and/or the White Mountains and some have horse privileges. Surrounding Concho are homestead ranches of 40 to 100+ acres and large family-owned commercial ranches.
