32.99 Acres For $159,000
Deer Lodge Montana, Deer Lodge County
This 33-acre property is an amazing find that is almost completely surrounded by National Forest land, has a creek, springs, a pond, elk and deer hunting, in the forest with solitude all at the end of the road. This is a rare opportunity that doesn’t come along very often to own everything you could want in a Montana mountain property.
It’s almost completely surrounded by the Beaverhead-Deer Lodge National Forest where you can just step from your front porch right to the National Forest and hunt, fish, and recreate all you’d like on thousands and thousands of acres of National Forest. You’ll find elk, deer, moose, and a multitude of other wildlife living throughout the forest your property sits in the middle of. The property is near key wintering grounds, critical calving areas, and you’ll hear the elk bugling in the fall right in the center of their rutting and breeding grounds.
The headwaters of Orofino Creek run through the property with its quaking aspen, spruce, and lodgepole pine trees growing along its banks. Some small trout inhabit the headwaters of this stretch of Orofino Creek as do an assortment of other water-loving critters. Several springs also seep from the ground on this lush mountain property and help feed the pond right in the center of the property.
Build your cabin overlooking the pond where you can hear the sounds of the creek and watch the animals and the pine and aspen forest you now own around you. The property is all relatively level for lots of good usable space to do what you want and build what you want. The property lines are surveyed in and the property is fenced, so bring your horses and ride through the surrounding mountains from your base camp on the property. There is road access right in to the property on both National Forest roads and also a private gated road with easements for you to drive through on to reach your property at the very end of the road. There are no easements through this property though, just peace and quiet and solitude way out in the forest.
All this and yet you’re only a 30-minute drive to the small town of Deer Lodge, Montana for gas, supplies, and food. Power is a long way off, so you’re looking at alternative off-the-grid energy sources. The property gets snowed in during the winter, but it’s an easy snowmobile ride in and there’s a snowmobile trail system in the area to enjoy as well.
The area is rich in mining history where the old-timers used to dig for gold and silver. Old mining cabins are scattered through the forest and this property is an old placer claim with all of its water resources where gold was once sought after. Gold and silver most certainly remain on this property for the hobby gold panner to try to strike it rich or for much more if you so desire a bigger operation. It’s all up to you on your schedule. The gold and silver could easily pay for the property if you find the right vein or get lucky and find some of those big nuggets.
This property is not priced to sell quickly. It’s priced for the discerning person looking for that perfect property out in the woods with a creek, springs and a pond at the end of the road with National Forest all around you. Or for the person who sees the value in mining at your leisure on your very own claim. Either way, you’ve struck it rich with this incredible find.
