Whiteline Ranch

$8,560,000 Klamath Falls, OR 20,140± Deeded Acres

Executive Summary

Among the largest deeded properties on the market in Oregon, the Whiteline Ranch encompasses 20,140± contiguous acres immediately east of famous Upper Klamath Lake. The property is mostly forested but also features 400± acres of non-irrigated farmland and a private irrigation impoundment covering 640± acres in the center of the ranch known as Whiteline Reservoir.  The main entrance to the ranch is located on the western end of picturesque Swan Lake Valley 25 miles northeast of Klamath Falls via all-season county roads.  Commercial air service is located in Medford, Oregon, approximately 100 miles west of the property. Whiteline Ranch is a large, well-blocked property nearly eight miles wide from east to west and seven miles in length from north to south.  Elevations range from 4,500 feet at Whiteline Reservoir to 6,500 feet near the ranch’s northeast corner.  The property has been carefully logged over the years (most recently in 2014) and features a quality timber asset that will only increase in value over the years.  Approximately 2,700±acres comprise well-stocked pine plantation with the majority of this in the 15± to 35± year class.  The non-irrigated farmland at Antelope Valley is leased to a local farmer who raises hay and grain, while the balance of the ranch is leased to a local cattle operator who pastures up to 600 pairs during summer months.  The ranch also holds three water right certificates to irrigate up to 365± acres, largely around Whiteline Reservoir.  Potential exists to enhance the ranch’s irrigation resources to create additional grazing capacity.Lying within southern Oregon’s recreation heartland, the ranch is home to quality elk and mule deer as well as an abundance of other wildlife and is eligible for eight landowner preference tags. The ranch shares an extensive boundary with the Fremont-Winema National Forest and is bordered by other federal lands managed by the Bureau of Land Management.  Because of its proximity to Upper Klamath Lake, the western and northern portions of the ranch lie within Klamath County’s Destination Resort zoning overlay, which allows for the development of commercial tourist facilities on this section of the property subject to county specifications. The ranch is unimproved, and an owner can choose from an almost endless selection of beautiful sites on which to construct a secluded residence or ranch compound.
