Secluded Black Hills recreational property adjacent to Forest Service land and located in the middle of elk country. This private 88 + acre retreat borders Black Hills National Forest on three sides.
Rustic improvements include two log cabins built from logs that were harvested on the land, a school house, and pole barn with horse corral. The main cabin is tucked into a draw where it has good southern exposure and conveniences including a generator hookup, propane lights, propane heat and also a wood stove.
The property is situated in the Dead Horse Flats area and is close to Gillette Canyon and South Antelope Spring. At an elevation in the range of 5,600 feet the terrain includes open meadows flanked by hillsides with pine trees and a few pockets of aspen trees. Most years hay is harvested on the meadows. There are many elk beds in the fields and the elk have been seen wintering in the area around the property.
Forest Service Road 281 loops through the property and it’s about 24 miles to Highway 16 at the Boles Canyon Road entrance. FS Road 281 connects to several other roads that go toward Custer, Newcastle and deeper into the Black Hills.
This is a great out-of-the way place for a hunting base camp, summer vacation spot, recreational retreat or a winter snowmobile destination. Journey in the Black Hills back country.
