The North Fork Ranch is a rare, legacy recreation farm/ranch, hunting and fishing property located in Washakie County, Wyoming south of Ten Sleep. The ranch headquarters back up to the beautiful Otter Creek canyon where the north fork emerges and then meanders through the improvements and meadows and the confluence with the south fork of Otter Creek on the property. These trout-filled streams emerge from the two canyon matrixes on the west and south ends of the property.
The impeccable improvements are nestled in the tree-lined valley at the mouth of Otter Creek Canyon, and the base of the foothills of the majestic Big Horn Mountains. This property has world-class fly-fishing and hunting within the boundaries of this ranch not to mention the thousands of acres of public land adjacent to it. There are 160+/- deeded acres and approximately 500 acres of Bureau of Land Management leased acres associated with the ranch. The lay of the deeded land in conjunction with the adjacent public land gives this ranch a much larger feel and because the mouth of the North Fork Canyon is on the deeded acreage the owners of the North Fork Ranch have virtually exclusive control and access to this rugged canyon and its exceptional fishery.
The improvements are located in the center of this 160 deeded acre parcel and have been impeccably maintained and newly remodeled and consist of the main home, a bunkhouse with living quarters above, a gathering and entertaining lodge with a massive stone fireplace, paved walking paths and footbridges from the main house and guest quarters, a shop, and various outbuildings for livestock, and a separate two-car garage. The main home and guest lodge are surrounded by manicured lawns with automatic sprinklers.
The North Fork Ranch is located approximately 16.5 miles southeast of Ten Sleep, Wyoming. The ranch can be accessed year-round by taking Highway 434 south out of Ten Sleep approximately 7 miles and turning east on Spring Creek Road. Spring Creek Road, which is a well-maintained county road, winds through some incredible country, past the Red Reflet guest ranch, for about 9.5 miles to the entrance of the property. For a small acreage, the location and lay of the deeded land, its adjacency to the State and BLM land, give the ranch a larger-than-life feel with unlimited access to thousands of acres of public land with awe-inspiring rugged canyons, challenging angling opportunities, fishing and a lifetime of big game and upland bird hunting.
The North Fork Ranch presents a buyer with unlimited recreational opportunities, a primary residence, or a year-round corporate retreat. The ranch provides the ideal cover and habitat needed for various types of upland game birds. Mule deer and elk will graze the meadows and retreat to the excellent cover found throughout the ranch. The fishing opportunities are also only limited by one's imagination. Trout can be found in both forks of the creek running through the ranch as well as the spring-fed pond.
