The Big Basin Ranch will allow opportunities to engage in any number of activities on one property that would normally require multiple properties in different locations and often in different states. Offering 9,570± acres of Deeded Land and 7,194± Acres of BLM leased land, the ranch operation can carry 200+ head of cattle, providing a reason to have horses, which the ranch has room for any number of them. There are fossil beds that have produced a barking deer’s jaw and another bone that may be 29 million years old. The spectacular rock formations and colors are great for exploring and photography. There are miles of two-track private roads for ATVs. A steelhead river is just past the front yard, and the hunting is as good as it gets in Oregon.
Finished in 2005, the home that the Kelly’s have built is placed and designed to blend into the natural surroundings, providing a beautiful spot to relax and enjoy the land. A person can sit on the deck or in the infinity pool and watch the sunset as the shadows come across the rims and the formations change colors while the evening birds sing. This is a spot where you will want to shelter in place even when this is no reason to. The next owner/manager of this nearly 17,000± acres can continue the preservation and conservation of their own park during a time when privacy and self-reliance are more important than ever.
