+/- 160 acres of deeded land at the mouth of the Clarks Fork Canyon. The Lake Creek BLM allotment gives owners approximately +/- 430 additional acres connecting this property to the Shoshone National Forest. This property also offers commercial investors an opportunity to own the Gold Medal Award Winning source plant for American Summits Water.

A note from Philip ~ “10,000 feet up in the Beartooth Mountains of Wyoming, the water is untouched and we want to keep it that way. It is never subjected to purifying chemicals, ozone, reverse osmosis, or distillation. Instead, it is naturally filtered through layers of ancient rock and bottled at the source in our state of the art facility by using methods that do not alter the water.” 

History

Prior to Wyoming becoming a territory in 1868, the principal area of Wyoming, including the area later to become Park County, was comprised of Laramie County and the Dakota Territory. During Wyoming’s territorial days, Park County was briefly Carter County which was later changed to Sweetwater County. In 1884, Park County was governed under Fremont County until 1896 when it became a part of Big Horn County. It was during this period in 1890 that Wyoming became a state. Park County was established in 1909 but was not organized until 1911. Construction on the Park County Courthouse began in 1911 and was completed in 1912. An addition was completed in 1983 and the original courthouse was restored in 1985.

Park County encompasses 3,349,120 acres of land, the majority of which is held under state or federal control, with only 23% privately owned. Most of the Shoshone National Forest, the first national forest, and a portion of Yellowstone National Park, the first national park, fall within Park County boundaries. Park County is located in the northwestern section of the State of Wyoming. It is the fifth largest county in area: ninety-two miles across its western boundary, sixty-nine miles across its northern boundary and it contains 5,233 square miles. It has the ninth largest population in the state. Three rivers flow through Park County: the Greybull and Shoshone Rivers which are tributaries to the Big Horn River, and the Clark’s Fork River which flows into the Yellowstone River.

Hunting

There is also excellent hunting for upland birds and waterfowl in most of the state. Wyoming’s wildlife and hunting are well managed, with excellent trophies of nearly every big-game species being taken in the state every year.

The ranch offers the potential for passing game and birds along the river, and the additional available acreage could provide great opportunities at deer and antelope.

Just minutes from the trailhead situated at the mouth of the Clarks Fork Canyon, this property could headquarter an outfitter, or be improved into a corporate retreat overlooking the Clarks Fork.
