Slash E Ranch is located between Island Park, Idaho, and West Yellowstone, Montana, home to the famed west entrance to Yellowstone National Park. The ranch is contiguous to Department of Interior land and State Land that connects with National Forest lands that lead into Yellowstone Park.
Wildlife such as elk, moose, antelope, mule and white-tailed deer, bears, raptors, eagles, wolves, and waterfowl migrate through the property from summer range to winter range and back again, making this 1,072± acre ranch a private version of the park. Two creeks, Targhee Creek and Howard Creek, run through Slash E Ranch. A portion of the property sits on Henry’s Lake, perfect for fishing, kayaking, canoeing, bird watching, and waterfowl hunting. Exceptional for a large family or company retreat, a substantial 3,347± square feet log residence looks out over Henry’s Lake, while four additional log cabins sit along babbling Targhee Creek.
