To sum it up briefly Campbell Lake Ranch is a 210 head working cattle ranch in an ecological paradise on a trophy fishing lake, major waterfowl flyway, with superb habitat for whitetail, mule deer and moose. The owner searched a long time to find a property of this caliber and Campbell Lake Ranch far exceeded his expectations. It is an environmentalists dream with a unique wetland area, a healthy creek running through an environmentally sound riparian zone, over 4,880 feet of waterfront on pristine Campbell Lake plus frontage on White Lake a beautifully timbered area and hay fields. Eagle and raptor nests provide plenty of opportunity to observe and study these amazing birds. There is more to this property than you may think at first glance, we urge you to look carefully if you are looking for a special private retreat with a lot going for it.


The ranch is a long established, productive 210 head working ranch with a fully renovated 1,108 ft2 character ranch house, barn, shop, calving barn, corrals and outbuildings. The land comprises 873 deeded acres in 4 titles, 2,680 acres of grazing leases and summer range. The property is fenced and cross fenced with established hayfields and a number of water licences. Recent improvements include post and rail fences and gate headers.


The ranch derives value from many aspects including 2 waterfront acreages the most spectacular being a 12-acre picture perfect parklike point jutting into the lake with over 3,200 ft of lakefront timbered in large Douglas fir, Ponderosa pine, aspen and spruce. It is the perfect place for a log or timber frame home. The adjacent 20 acres is another trophy property with about 1,290 ft of lakefront. Access to these properties is by way of a registered easement through the main ranch property.


The 160 acre property described as the branding field is also a very special property with open grazing, varied terrain and beautiful views.


The owner currently has an arrangement with the neighbor for the operation of the ranch which works very well and is profitable.
