Elk Meadow Ranch provides the pleasure of seclusion in vast, open country, yet it is a 1 ¼-hour drive from modern-day conveniences in Casper. Amenities include golf, alpine and Nordic skiing, shopping, dining, entertainment, professional services, and Natrona County International Airport, which offers direct service to Denver and Salt Lake City. The route from Casper to the ranch is via state highway and county-maintained roads. Situated at the base of the Shirley and Seminoe Mountains at the edge of the vast Shirley Basin, the ranch enjoys fantastic vistas in every direction—the Pedro Mountains to the north, Shirley Mountains to the east, Elk Mountain to the south, and Ferris Mountain and the Seminoe Mountains to the west.  Consisting of a mix of rolling grassland, creek bottoms, forested hillsides, and rocky outcrops, Elk Meadow Ranch has numerous shrub-wooded draws with ephemeral springs, two ponds, and perennial Lost Creek that runs through the middle of the main ranch compound. In addition, one of the BLM allotments has frontage on Seminoe Reservoir, which has 180 miles of shoreline and is a tremendous resource for boating and fishing. The current owners operated Elk Meadow Ranch as a guest ranch for approximately 10 years through 2012. Operated as Bucking S Ranch, LLC, the ranch focused on horseback riding and working cattle and is prepared to handle 12 guests at a time with facilities for up to 50 head of horses, including corrals, pastures, tack room and large tack-up facility. The ranch has had a Bureau of Land Management Special Recreation Permit that allows the owners to take paying guests horseback riding on BLM lands. The owners preferred not to run the guest ranch operation in 2013, instead they are leasing the guest facilities to anglers coming to fish the famed Miracle Mile nearby. The highlight of the improvements is the handsome lodge, designed to function equally well as an estate home. Other buildings include two well-appointed duplex cabins; a beautifully restored and expanded homestead cabin; and a large shop building with sleeping quarters for four upstairs. With accommodations for 12 guests, the ranch focused on equestrian activities, including cattle drives and roundups on neighboring ranches. The 1 ½-story, 4,564 sqft lodge, completed in 2004, has comfortable living, dining and entertainment areas. Other amenities include a large deck, master suite, double guest bedroom, 2 ½ bathrooms, a full professional kitchen, covered porch and radiant heat. The two tastefully-appointed, 960 sqft duplex cabins, also built in 2004, are sited near Lost Creek and feature pellet stoves for heat. The well-restored homestead cabin of 1,850 sqft has 2 bedrooms and a ¾ bath.  The main entrance to the Miracle Mile—5.5 miles of world-class tailwater trout fishing on the North Platte River—is 15 minutes from the ranch, providing excellent opportunities to wade or float-fish for large rainbow, brown and fine-spotted Snake River cutthroat trout. Recent surveys revealed populations of 2,000 to 4,400 trout larger than six inches per mile, with cutthroats averaging 16.6 inches and 1.91 pounds. There are several guide services in Casper and Saratoga specializing in North Platte trout fishing. The famous Gray Reef section of the North Platte is also within easy striking distance of the ranch. One of the ranch’s BLM permits has extensive frontage on Seminoe Reservoir, which has excellent fishing for trout and walleye, along with recreational boating opportunities. In addition to hunting and fishing, Elk Meadow Ranch is an equestrian paradise. With access to the vast surrounding public lands, the ranch provides almost limitless opportunities for day rides and pack trips in the mountains and high-desert environments—or even a ride on a beach. These tremendous open spaces also lend themselves to exploration by four-wheel-drive or off-road vehicles. Also, the Seminoe Reservoir offers 20,000 acres of water for recreational boating, water skiing, and jet skiing. A sportsman’s paradise, this ranch functions equally well as a guest ranch, as a family or corporate retreat, or as a base for a guided hunting and fishing operation—and has adequate facilities to operate two or more of these functions at once.
