160 Backcountry Acres – Sweetwater County, WY

Seasonal water flows!


The government can keep printing money but cannot make more land!!

160 REMOTE acres in Sweetwater County, WY. If you want to be around humans, this property is not for you. If sharing land with antelope, mule deer, and elk are more your style, this is for you. Miles from the nearest home, yet easy to find once you know where to go. Nice and flat, no crazy elevation changes to deal with. Evidence of occasional seasonal water flows through the low point on the property. Amazing sunsets overlooking the red desert. Beautiful climate spring through fall. Winters reserved for those braver than me! Borders 1,280 acres of Bureau of Land Management property on the east and south sides which further enhances the hunting opportunities! Excellent base camp for the many recreational destinations within a short day’s trip distance. You get all of this for $250/acre!

Some uses would be a hunting camp, grazing land for horses and cattle, RV and camping spot, ATV riding, a bugout spot, or simply to hold as an asset or inflation hedge.
