Lake Creek Ranch

Cottonwood Road, Thermopolis, Wyoming 82443 - Hot Springs County
$2,101,330 2729 Acres
Property ID 2549943


LAKE CREEK RANCH is comprised of three separate secluded parcels (Lake Creek, Spring Creek and Cottonwood Creek) that provide livestock grazing as well as wildlife habitat. Together the parcels total 2,729 acres of deeded lands, which are surrounded by 3,621 +/- acres of BLM lands.

Located in the foothills of the Owl Creek Mountains at elevations ranging from 6,350 to 7,550, the topography of the property varies from sharply sloped hills and ridges (which dominate the western parts of the property) to flatter ridges, shallow valleys, and large open areas in the eastern portion.

The property is bordered by the Lake Creek drainage on the west and the Cottonwood Creek drainage on the north, both of which flow year around and entirely on deeded portions of the ranch. Lake Creek Ranch is also bisected by numerous draws and ravines containing flowing springs and reservoirs for stock water. Lake Creek is a small year around stream which flows through the northwestern part of the property, forming a steep narrow valley which eventually intersects with Cottonwood Creek on the northern boundary of the property. Cottonwood Creek is a wider and larger stream, featuring large stands of deciduous trees, that flows southeast through the northernmost parcel of the ranch and forms a wide sheltered valley with year around live water.

Stock water is provided by Cottonwood Creek and Lake Creek, several reservoirs, and numerous flowing springs.

The BLM Lake Creek Allotment #00607 (Permit #4901217) is contiguous to and interspersed with the deeded lands. The BLM rates the property to support 546 active AUMs on BLM and 630 AUMs on the private portion. The BLM permit allows 160 cattle animal units to be grazed on the allotment from June 10th to June 30th, and 160 cattle animal units to be grazed on the allotment from July 1 to January 2 of each grazing season.

There are no useable buildings on the parcels. Improvements are limited to a holding pen and corrals, which are located near a year-around spring. Interior fencing on the property is minimal. The boundary fences are built approximately on the same line as the boundary of the BLM Allotment.

2015 Taxes: $928.51

The Lake Creek Ranch provides outstanding wildlife habitat. The more rugged foothill country along with the Lake Creek and Cottonwood Creek drainages are the perfect setting for elk and mule deer. Antelope, bear, mountain lion, raptors and sage grouse may also be found on the property.
