The ranch is located on the edge of the Blue Mountains in Eastern Oregon where Burnt River and China Creek have year-round flows meandering through the property and creating an oasis for wildlife. There is year-round access with very desirable building sites on a number of locations overlooking the Burnt River Valley to the south. The ranch consists of ponderosa pine and douglas fir on the northern section covering approximately 300± acres of the property, along with pinion pine and sage brush extending into the southern reaches of the ranch.  Forest Service property borders the northern portion of the acreage with private holdings bordering the remainder. The property can easily be reached by a county maintained gravel road from the north or the south.

Along with deer and elk, there are also bears and the occasional mountain lion. Game birds can been found on the property and are mainly limited to grouse, quail and chukars located at lower elevations. The Unity Reservoir Lake along with Phillips Lake both provide rainbow trout, small-mouth bass and crappie, with perch and Coho Salmon mainly on Phillips Lake.
