The Beaver Creek Ranch is located on Beaver Creek in Shell Wyoming, at the base of the western slope of the Big Horn Mountains, one of the west’s most spectacular back drops. With an elevation of about 4200 feet, the dramatic accent of the Big Horns, just a few miles east, rise abruptly to Cloud Peak at just over 13,000 feet. There are literally thousands of acres of some of the nation’s most pristine and scenic National Forest and public lands right through the gate of the Ranch.
Lying on the lower reach of Beaver Creek as it winds its way through the ranch to Shell Creek, the productive hay meadows have the benefit of a perfect climate to raise some of the country’s finest alfalfa hay. Approximately 1+ mile of Beaver Creek travels through the 140+ acres of meadows on the ranch and feed the reservoirs that supply irrigation to the pivots, gated pipe, and wheel lines that the systems utilizes. The high bench above the meadows allows the utilization of the remainder of the deeded lands and a contiguous 350+ acre B.L.M. permit for grazing.
The 2900 square foot, 3 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath ranch style home sits in the shade of huge mature cottonwoods on the bank of Beaver Creek. Finding a better site to live anywhere in the west would be a tall order. A bunkhouse, tack house and Quonset style shed as well as storage and equipment sheds provide adequate room for quests and equipment. The corrals were designed with the horseman in mind and are equipped with frost free waterers and loafing sheds.
Access to the ranch is via Highway 14, about 15 miles east of Greybull Wyoming. Greybull is a town of approximately 1800 people lying on the banks of the Big Horn River. This small ranching town offers some great amenities including a quality school system and hospital.
The wildlife in the area includes nearly all the species of big game and birds that call Wyoming home. On the ranch and in the lands surrounding it, wildlife enthusiasts will hunt, photograph, or view them, in some of the dramatic landscapes in the world. If it’s fishing, hunting, hiking, horseback riding, or just viewing the countryside, Beaver Creek Ranch offers you the opportunity to enjoy the best there is in the west.
