Plus, acres of BLM land surround the undeveloped property, offering additional scenery, wildlife encounters, and outdoor recreation. This property has a prime spot near some of the state's most coveted hiking trails and natural attractions.

These rugged hills hold years of fascinating history. From prehistoric dinosaur trails to Native American monuments and pioneer wagon trails to booming oil field hubs - Natrona County has endless stories to share.

Outdoor Adventures

Put your hiking boots on and get ready for adventure. Directly from the property, follow Cottonwood Creek (Cottonwood Beach Road) to the Alcova Dinosaur Trail Head, less than a mile away. The trail winds through awe-inspiring Jurassic formations, and you can see for miles from the top. In the summer months, relax on the shores of the Alcova Reservoir or float the North Platte River to cool off.

Scenic Alcova Reservoir is a favorite summertime destination for locals. In addition to water sports, it also offers excellent fishing for several species of trout, salmon, and walleye.

Wyoming is known for wildlife watching. Native species thrive within this untouched terrain. Located near several reservoirs and streams, this part of the Wyoming Basin supports large populations of pronghorn antelope, white-tail and mule deer, elk, turkey, and coyote. Majestic bald eagles soar overhead.

Float, kayak, Sup, or fish your way down the Upper North Platte River that flows through downtown Casper and into Alcova Reservoir. Anglers travel from all over to fish the famous fly-fishing river, especially the Miracle Mile, known for trophy-sized brown and rainbow trout. Need an adrenaline rush? Try the plunging rapids that flow as the snow melts from the Snowy Range and Sierra Madre Mountains.

Hogadon Basin Ski Area is about 40 miles from the property. South Casper Mountain offers thrilling ski slopes and beautiful waterfalls for year-round fun.
