  • The ranch and nearby area provides endless recreational opportunities including hunting and fly-fishing.
  • There are incredible views of the Wyoming plains to the east, and Laramie Peak and the surrounding mountains to the west.

  • A little further downstream on the Laramie River lies Wyoming’s Gray Rocks Reservoir, a very good warm water fishery and boating lake.

  • Adjacent BLM ground has very limited access and sports some good hunting for deer, elk, black bear, turkey and the occasional big horn sheep.


  • The Wyoming ranch provides nearly 2 miles of Laramie River access on the adjacent BLM ground.
  • This river is a relatively undiscovered fishery producing some of the best fly-fishing in the region with plenty of brook, brown and rainbow trout.
