Bear Creek Ranch is a historic holding located in the Madison Valley of Montana, just 12 miles south of the town of Ennis and north of Yellowstone Park. Prized for its world-renowned fishing on the fabled Madison River, the ranch is perched on the east side of the valley adjacent to the Bear Creek Wildlife Management Area and the Gallatin National Forest. Originally settled by the Storey family more than a century ago, the ranch is effectively a clean slate for one to create their legacy and enjoy the convenience of location to Ennis, Bozeman, and the Big Sky Resort. Panoramic views are outstanding of the valley and its associated mountain ranges. Mill Creek spills out of the mountains and into the valley, providing seasonal irrigation water to the ranch’s hay fields. Cool season grasses provide an abundance of forage for livestock and play a critical role in winter feed for a large herd of elk that migrate into the valley from the adjacent mountainous lands and Yellowstone Park. Contiguous to the ranch lies Bear Creek Game Range, a 3,500± acre seasonal refuge established by the State of Montana in the 1950s to ensure a permanent habitat for elk, mule deer, and a variety of wildlife, particularly through the wintering months. The 1,619± acre ranch is held in two tracts consisting of a 647± acre section of bare land located one mile west of the main parcel and 972± acres located adjacent to the public lands. Remnants of the old homestead still exist on the larger parcel adjacent to the hay meadows. Many of the lands in this part of the Upper Madison have conservation easements, including Bear Creek Ranch. Protected from further development, this plays a critical role in sustaining the overwintering wildlife that resides in the valley. It also maintains the integrity of the open space and unobstructed views. This is an opportunity to own a manageable ranch asset beautifully located in one of the West’s most desirable locations.
