The ranch was originally homesteaded for good reason. Sitting on a small plateau above the Clarks Fork River, the gently rolling terrain has a balance of open meadow, riparian slews and stands of virgin timber ranging from spruce to aspens. Ghost Creek traverses the property and small irrigation ditches have been used in the past where hay was once grown. The property frames mountain peaks in all directions.
World famous for the stunning scenery and diversity of wildlife, the Ghost Creek Ranch adjoins the Shoshone National Forest on three sides. Elk, moose, deer, grizzly and black bear, mountain lion and wolves are all found in the area. Ghost Creek has Brook trout and there is a small pond with fish as well. The area in general boasts excellent fishing and recreational opportunities including 100s of miles of snowmobile trails.

The Ranch is very private yet there is a year-round paved road in close proximity. There are very few in-holdings of private land in this area. The quality of this type of parcel is unsurpassed.
