Adkins Farm on Rock Creek offers many options. Agriculture, Commercial, and Recreational are all possibilities for this 100-acre property. Adkins Farm is located 6 miles north of Joliet, Carbon County, Montana, at the intersection of U.S. Highway 212 and U.S. Highway 310. This intersection holds the highest traffic count in Carbon County. It is the halfway point between Montana’s largest city, Billings, and the quaint mountain ski town of Red Lodge and the famous All-American Highway, the Beartooth Pass on U.S Highway 212 leading to the north entrance of Yellowstone National Park. U.S. Highway 310 is the main highway to the east entrance to Yellowstone National Park from Billings, which will take you through Cody, Wyoming.
The Southern boundary of the property is approximately one-half mile of the famous Rock Creek. This portion of Rock Creek contains good numbers of rainbow and brown trout, which are a joy to catch with a wet or dry fly. The cottonwood-rich riverbanks of Rock Creek are home to whitetail deer, pheasant, turkey, and black bear. Ducks and geese frequent Rock Creek as well as the Smith ditch and a warm water drainage ditch, which never freezes, that are all on the property.
Over 20,000 square feet of shop and warehouse space make up the improvements on the Adkins Farm property.
