The Salmon Prairie Homestead is 118± acres set in the foreground of the famous Bob Marshall and Scapegoat wildernesses.  Lush meadows and Aspens create the perfect homesite.  This land is part of an intact Rocky Mountain ecosystem that is one of the few remaining in North America.  This land is wild, scenic, and breathtaking.  There is a spring fed pond on the property that is home to a healthy population of Brooke Trout. Salmon creek runs through the middle of the property and provides critical Bull Trout habitat.  Scenic Cooper Lake is only a couple miles up the road from the property and offers watersports, fishing, and incredible vistas of the Rocky Mountains.

The ranch also provides excellent opportunities for the equestrian lover, hiker, or mountain biker. The winter months provide exceptional Nordic skiing and snowmobiling right on site.  From Ovando, it’s just a quick trip east to Lincoln. This area has long been known as a snowmobilers paradise with trails starting right in town. The area has about 250 miles of groomed trails and seemingly endless back country play areas. The annual 350 mile dog race, Race to the Sky, begins and ends in Lincoln.

When you think of Montana, images of magnificent mountains, verdant meadows, scenic rivers, breathtaking backdrops, and recreational meccas come to mind. Properties come and go, but few are exceptional opportunities to own a chunk of the Montana Wilderness. Salmon Prairie is one of those homesteads that will forever embody the spirit of the Rockies.
