Hamilton Ranch
Newcastle, WY
300 acres - $2,300,000


Property and Grazing Leases: 
  300 ± deeded acres
  320 ± acres of BLM Grazing Permit (29 AUMs)
  160 ± acres of State Grazing Lease (13 AUMs)
  780 ± total acres

The grazing permits are positioned to the east of the ranch, across Beaver Creek Road, for ease in livestock movement. Around 14 acres of tillable land has been cultivated in previous years and irrigated using two side-roll sprinklers. Common crops include grass-alfalfa hay, while the fields also hold potential for outstanding food plots close to the creek. Additionally, there are another 3 to 4 acres of non-irrigated fields. 

The ranch is situated in an area steeped in Western History. Lore from local historians give account of the two Wolfe River apple trees in the front yard being delivered to the ranch on the Cheyenne-Deadwood Stage. In the year 2000, the previous owners, the Harper Family, were awarded the “Wyoming Centennial Ranch” designation for having owned and operated the ranch within the same family for over 100 years.  Link to Wyoming Centennial Ranch info.   When the Hamiltons purchased the ranch they became the second family to steward the property. The Harper Grist Mill located just across the road from the ranch headquarters on State Land is noted as Site #9 on the Beaver Creek Loop Tour. The remnants of the blacksmith shop for the Mill are still visible. The ranch is an extraordinary investment or conservation easement prospect. 

Abundant live water runs through the ranch. Stockade Beaver Creek, which runs year-round, winds through the entire length of the property from north to south for over one-mile. Spring water is utilized to fill a cistern for the home. Additionally, the spring feeds into the corrals providing a continuous source of water for livestock and wildlife. 

The striking combination of topographical features make a spectacular landscape and an excellent environment for wildlife. The terrain includes winding creek bottoms, expansive valleys, hidden meadows, marshes, and rocky hillsides with mountain mahogany. Ponderosa pine, cedar, quaking aspen and cottonwood are mingled with willow, wild plums, choke cherry and a variety of native bushes which line the stream banks. The wild asparagus growing near the creek is a real treat. A wide expanse of the Black Hills dominates the eastern horizon. The elevations on the ranch are in the range of 4,500 feet to 4,800 feet above sea level.

The headquarters is tucked in the trees alongside Beaver Creek Road, offering convenient access to a well-maintained gravel road. The original homestead, believed to have been built around 1900 retains charming details including the vintage wooden spindles which grace the front porch trim. The home was remodeled and an addition added in 2010. It now includes about 1,834 square feet with three bedrooms and two bathrooms. Large windows in the living room and dining area overlook the ranch and take in the incredible vistas across the Beaver Creek Valley and the surrounding Black Hills. 

24’ x 50’ shop/garage with concrete floor built in 1984 is north of the residence. 
40’ x 56’ Equipment shed built in 2011 has a concrete floor and 12’ lean-to. 
Also has a chicken coop and pipe corral. 

With the combination of live water, plentiful cover and feed, the wildlife habitat is tremendous. Area wildlife include deer, turkey, elk and migratory ducks and geese. The elk typically roam in the higher hills toward the National Forest. The diverse terrain invites a variety of small game animals such as mountain lion, bobcat, coyote, and fox. More information on hunt areas and seasons can be obtained from the Wyoming Game and Fish at  

This ranch adjoins a vast amount of public land on both the western and eastern boundary. 
The State and BLM Grazing Permits to the east feature terrain that rises steeply to a plateau near the Wyoming-South Dakota Stateline, where Black Hills National Forest merges with the State and BLM land and extends into the remote backcountry of western South Dakota. The opportunities for hunting, hiking, mountain biking, wildlife viewing, photography, ATV or horseback riding are plentiful. In addition to the fishing provided on the ranch, a 5-minute drive south to LAK Reservoir offers more fishing experiences. Outdoor enthusiast will find endless recreational adventures await. 

The Black Hills region is rich in history and places of interest. Many day trips around the area can be enjoyed to destinations like Deerfield Lake, Historic Deadwood, Devils Tower National Monument, Mount Rushmore Memorial, Spearfish Canyon, Custer State Park, Keyhole State Park, and Crazy Horse Monument just to name a few. The nearest nine-hole golf course is at Newcastle.
