Whitney Valley Ranch
The Whitney Valley Ranch is a hidden gem in Eastern Oregon for someone looking for a recreational paradise to share with friends and family. The property land-use consists of beautiful irrigated meadows, forested timber, and intermittent pockets of rangeland. Pinus Creek is a tributary to Camp Creek and these streams flow the entire length of the property providing both
surface water and sub-irrigation to the meadows. Willows, Aspen stands, and timber are located throughout the ranch.
Located in the Sumpter Unit, the property is eligible for two LOP tags for deer and elk. The irrigated meadows, ponds, timber, and aspen stands provide a variety of habitat for big game. The ranch consistently has Whitetail deer and elk on the property. Damage tags have been issued in the past with a high success rate for elk. Archery elk hunting in the area has been productive.
A tremendous amount of conservation has been applied to the property over the past two decades including the following: livestock watering system, riparian planting, pre-commercial thinning, irrigation water conveyance, irrigation well, ponds, fish friendly diversion, and fish passage along Camp Creek. Currently the ranch is operated as a livestock operation with a USFS allotment of 50 hd for 5 months.
The Blue Mountain OHV trail system is near the ranch and can be accessed by traveling along forest service roads. This trail system crosses multiple counties. The forest service road
adjacent to the property has a groomed snowmobile trail route during the winter months.
A house built in 1900 and recently remodeled overlooks the meadows. Three older cabins are located on the place and all have addresses associated with them. There is a garage, barn and several outbuildings along with livestock working facilities. A large high-clearance metal barn is also located on the property and can be utilized for storing RV's, ATV's, snowmobiles or hay.
