Spanning 13,796± deeded acres, Patmos Ranch occupies a dramatic swathe of land dedicated to ranching, hunting, and conservation in eastern Utah. Located about 140 miles southeast of Salt Lake City near Price, Utah, this ranch lies among the eastern Book Cliffs Mountain Range, with views of Bruin Point and the entire Castle Valley. The rugged terrain creates a thriving natural habitat for big game and upland birds, as well as multiple recreational opportunities.
Elevations on the ranch range from 6,410 feet near the town of Sunnyside, Utah, to heights of over 10,000 feet at the summit of Bruin Point. The ranch features incredible variation in topography and vegetation, with lower-lying cottonwoods and oaks giving way to cedar, pine, and aspen as the elevation climbs upward. Castle Valley spreads out to the west and south to include San Rafael Swell, Goblin Valley State Park, Huntington, and Millsite State Parks. Boundless recreational opportunities include hiking, biking, four-wheeling, camping, fishing, and hunting. Numerous dinosaur sites, museums, ancient Native American rock art, railroad and mining history, and ghost towns provide a playground for historians. During the winter months, the property’s high elevation and surrounding areas are ideal for cross-country skiing and snowmobiling.
Operated as a Cooperative Wildlife Management Unit with an additional 6,100± contiguous acres, the property is professionally managed for elk, mule deer, black bear, and mountain lion, providing owners with private tags and extended seasons. Patmos Ranch has the potential to pasture 100 to 300 cow-calf pairs in the summer months, which provides another draw when it comes to improving the big game habitat.
There are vast opportunities for adding structural improvements on the land. The current ownership has identified 12 eligible lodging sites, six of which are large tracts near the road with spectacular views. County roads provide access to a portion of the ranch, while private dirt roads create access throughout the property.
The seller is implementing a wildlife habitat and grazing resource improvement program through the Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS). What’s more, there are options for carbon tax-generating programs, and the entire property lies in an Economic Opportunity Zone with enormous tax benefits and designations available for conservation easements.
Patmos Ranch offers a rare chance to own an enormous expanse of land with extraordinary hunting opportunities that cater to a conservation-minded buyer.
