Framed by the majestic peaks of the Wind River Mountain Range, the Binning Willow Creek Ranch is a well-rounded cattle and hay operation with recreational amenities to boot. Rich in water rights and water features, the ranch boasts approximately 1.75 miles of Willow Creek along with 0.65± miles of Lake Creek, a seasonal trout stream created each spring by the outflow of Willow Lake located just 0.75± miles east of the ranch in the Bridger National Forest. With 700± irrigated acres of hay meadows and extensive grazeable acreage, the ranch offers an incoming owner several options from an agricultural standpoint. The ranch headquarters include modest improvements designed to serve the agricultural operations. These improvements include a four-bedroom, two-bath residence built in 2001, bunkhouse, cookhouse, shop, barn, machine storage, and various outbuildings. Separate from the main ranch is a 40± acre lakefront parcel on Willow Lake that is bordered by national forest on two sides, providing a beautiful recreational retreat and direct “out-the-back-gate” access to Bridger National Forest and the Wind River Mountain Range’s seemingly endless trails and postcard-worthy landscapes. Comprised of approximately 1,180 deeded acres, the ranch is located in Cora, Wyoming, just 18 miles north of Pinedale and 69 miles south of Jackson.
