Looking to live off the land, engulfed in nature in all its captivating seasons and not the noise of society? This 382± acre mountain property offers a homesite with power ready to bring your lodge or cabin dreams to life in unsullied mountain views.

This area is where dirt and water collide, providing bountiful wildlife for mule deer, whitetail deer, rocky mountain elk, bears, bighorn sheep, and mountain lions with various upland game birds. Ritter on the River also offers 0.62± miles of river frontage of the Middle Fork John Day River that hosts steelhead, chinook, mountain whitefish, trout, and smallmouth bass. Did I mention it is adjacent to the natural and historic Ritter Hot Springs? Come on in; the water’s fine!
Where is Ritter, Oregon? It is somewhere between a thousand miles from nowhere and “take me home, country roads.” It is considered part of the Greater Idaho Movement, and you would only happen upon it exploring the wild and scenic byway of Oregon that takes you through undiscovered territory of untainted landscapes and waterways. It is where the land is still left pristine and wild, where the mountains open themselves up to scattered junipers, aspens, and pines with creeks flowing into the John Day River, the longest undammed tributary of the Columbia River in Oregon.
Mountain living is not for the faint of heart but for those who seek the truth in freedom and self-resiliency, welcome home.
