About this Property
Hidden in the privacy of the Big Hole Valley, life on the Lazy K Ranch feels like you stepped 100 years back in time to the wilds of Montana. With very little development, and home to some of the oldest and largest ranches in the West, the land of the Big Hole Valley is as well known for its endless recreational opportunities as it is for its ability to produce some of the finest hay in the state. Ranching, riding, hunting, fishing, snowmobiling, and hiking are a way of life in the Big Hole. The Lazy K Ranch is located only 4 miles from Mussigbrod Reservoir, in a general draw hunting district, and bordering National Forest making it a perfect getaway for the outdoor enthusiast and those with a desire to live the western way of life. The ranch spans 1297 deeded acres of verdant meadows, wooded areas, scenic vistas, natural springs, and is veined with Plimpton Creek and numerous irrigation ditches. It is currently run as a cow/calf and hay operation from May through October.
The land can comfortably support approximately 300 head of cattle. There are approximately 900 acres of flood irrigated land, about 200 of which is hay ground. Nine senior water rights convey with the ranch, all of which are exclusive rights off Mussigbrod Reservoir. The Lazy K Ranch includes a 14,000-acre USFS lease in Saginaw Meadows out of Jackson. The ranch features a charming dry cabin with barn wood finishes on the interior, providing the perfect place to relax and unwind after a long day of ranching or outdoor activities.
