SOLD - The Sheep Rock Overlook offering is a rare ownership opportunity in the Upper Platte River Valley just a ½ mile from the charming town of Saratoga, Wyoming. Set in an area known for its unlimited recreation opportunities and scenic mountain vistas, the subject property is comprised of 100 acres and enjoys outstanding views, easy county road access and power to the property.
Known as the town “Where the Trout Leap in Main Street”, Saratoga, a small town of a little over 1,700, is nestled along the banks of the North Platte River. For centuries natives and settlers flocked to the area for its famed hot springs. Today, the robust town has much to offer including a newly built critical access hospital, several noteworthy restaurants, a brewery, a grocery store, a lumberyard, a hardware store, a Case implement and Polaris dealer, Shively Field (a public airport with a 8,800 ft runway), and all the other amenities one would hope to have when looking for a place to call home.
The Upper North Platte River Valley offers a vast array of outdoor recreation opportunities that lures everyone from the weekend warrior to the most devoted outdoorsman. For the avid angler, there are over 100 miles of blue-ribbon fishing along the North Platte and Encampment Rivers from the state line to Fort Steele. Not far to the north is the world famous Miracle Mile, a seven mile long tail water section between Pathfinder and Seminoe Reservoirs offering some of the best big trout habitat in the entire state. As the North Platte River meanders its way through the valley it is flanked by the Snowy and Sierra Madre mountain ranges with unlimited small creeks and high mountain lakes for those looking for a different fishing experience. Both mountain ranges are in the scenic Medicine Bow National Forest and offer thousands and thousands of acres for hiking, ATVing, snowmobiling, hunting and wildlife photography. From the timber covered mountains to the rolling sage covered hills in the valley, a variety of wildlife including moose, elk, deer, pronghorn antelope, bear and mountain lion call this area home. For those looking to enjoy a day on the links, Saratoga also features two golf courses. One is a public nine hole course and the other is the famed Old Baldy Club, a membership only club known for it meticulously maintained championship-quality fairways and greens that challenge golfers of all levels.
Given its size and proximity to Saratoga, the Sheep Rock Overlook presents a number of different opportunities to a potential buyer. For the buyer looking to enjoy sweeping views of cottonwood lined river bottoms, chalk cliffs and the mountains in the distance, this property will not disappoint. There are a number of building sites to take it all in and still have plenty of room to have a few horses, run a few cattle, or both. For the more development minded buyer there is a lot of potential to create a well thought out development as the property sits within the one-mile buffer zone of the thriving town of Saratoga. With a mile of frontage along the county road there is easy access throughout the property with power along the southern border. The neighboring Sheep Rock Ranch is under extensive conservation easements to protect the views and open space for future generations.
Opportunities like the Sheep Rock Overlook seldom come available. Given its size, location and potential this property must be seen to be appreciated. Commercial air service is available in Laramie, 1.5 hours away, and Denver is only a 3.5 hour drive from the property.
