Within a scenic mountain setting nearly surrounded by BLM land lies Elk Haven, an 80-acre private hunting paradise. It’s a completely private, end-of-the-road sanctuary, surrounded by dense pine, and granite rock outcroppings. Located approximately 12 miles southwest of Wheatland, and just a few miles off the pavement, Elk Haven is a very rare, easily accessible, pristine mountain parcel.
Elk Haven is tucked up right against the mountains with incredible views in every direction in an unmatched setting; this is a perfect summer home or weekend retreat. The amount of game within the property is typical of properties 10 times this size, due to its incredibly diverse habitat created by a picturesque landscape that’s perfect for any outdoor activity.
This area receives approximately 13 inches of rainfall per year and averages 41 inches of snowfall. There are generally 230 sunny days per year and high temperatures range from 89 degrees in July to 41 degrees in January.
Elk Haven is located in Platte County, Wyoming 12 miles southwest of Wheatland, Wyoming on the northern edge of the Cooney Mountains. This location is easily accessible year around just a few miles off of a paved road. This setting is second to none and is one of the few smaller parcels in the whole area that will ever come up for sale at the foot of the Cooney Hills.
The property offers an 800 sq. ft. custom built, off-the-grid hunting cabin with a loft bedroom.
Elk Haven’s habit and location are excellent for all kinds of recreational opportunities and extends onto the adjacent public land. The setting is home to numerous amounts of game animals and the cabin is located in a perfect setting to view the surrounding hillsides and mountains.
There is a small permitted reservoir directly below the cabin that can be developed into a little private fishery right off the cabin deck. Otherwise the surrounding area has numerous fishing opportunities in nearly every direction from the property within a few minutes drive.
Hunting opportunities at Elk Haven exist right off the porch. Elk and deer frequent the hillsides directly adjacent to the cabin on a regular basis, and if that isn’t enough, the couple hundred acres of additional landlocked BLM to the south of the property is excellent habitat to find trophy elk and deer. Elk Haven is within Area 7 for elk, one of the premier elk areas in the state, and Area 64 for deer, an area with tags readily available on most years.
Elk Haven is one of those properties that doesn’t come up for sale very often. This is truly one of the best mountain settings for a property this size that has came onto the market in this area for the last several years.
