Located in one of the most beautiful valleys in the State, just minutes from the university town of La Grande, Bear Creek Valley Ranch, with its timbered and open pastures, draws, riparian areas and meadows, four creeks, 5 developed ponds and the 1.25± miles of the Grande Rhonde River flowing through, is a lush home to livestock and wildlife alike. Bear Creek Valley Ranch not only provides excellent recreational opportunities but also supports substantial agricultural production and offers a significant depreciable asset base. Blessed with abundant underground water resources, two low-lift wells, plus one artesian well provides irrigation water for the ranch’s productive hay fields.

Joining the National Forest, Bear Creek Valley Ranch is within the Oregon Department of Fish & Wildlife Starkey Game Management Unit #52, an area home to thousands of Rocky Mountain elk. Additional area wildlife includes mule deer, whitetail deer, bear, cougar, turkeys, ducks and geese. Three Landowner Preference (LOP) Tags are available to the ranch owner (Buyer to verify with ODFW). Hunt elk and deer, plus fish for wild Redband trout, right on your own ranch!
