Do you Want the Grand Tour of River Ranches for Sale?
If you have an eye out for versatile, all-purpose river ranches for sale, take the grand tour of the Rocking Bar Ranch in Wyoming.

The keen stewardship of the owners results in complete harmony with the environment.
Rocking Bar Ranch will more than satisfy your checklist. It is a proven cattle ranch, top-notch big-game hunting ground, world-class trout fishery, and scenic wildlife habitat.

Careful maintenance sustains healthy cutthroat populations in the Greybull River and diverse wildlife habitat.
Rocking Bar Ranch – Details
It doesn’t get any better than Central Wyoming’s Rocking Bar Ranch when it comes to wildlife, trout, and cattle. That’s why the ranch has been called the perfect trifecta. Also look at the great improvements added by the ranchers, too.
Under the canopy of the snow-capped Absaroka Mountains, four homes accommodate residents and guests.
- Close to the banks of Greybull River is an exquisite custom home featuring 3800 square feet. The finely finished home features four bedrooms, four baths, and an oversized garage.
- Sited near the original Ranch headquarters, a remodeled home (1910 circa) features 1304 square feet. It is close to the corrals and 1352 square-foot calving shed.
- A 3937 square-foot modular with a finished walkout basement is secluded in a private setting up Spring Creek.
- Situated in the meadows, the fourth home is a modular available for guests.
Big Game Hunting
Large herds of big-game enjoy the thick grasslands of Rocking Bar Ranch. Hunters have taken trophy white tail deer, mule deer, and elk, including 350+ inch bulls. Sizable numbers of antelope, black bear, and mountain lions are also present. In addition, the long history of extraordinary big-game hunting qualifies Rocking Bar Ranch for coveted landowner tags, including tags for deer, elk, and antelope.
Boasting superb water quality, the Greybull River flows through 1.9 miles of the ranch. Many biologists consider it the best habitat for genetically pure populations of Yellowstone Cutthroat Trout as descended from fish in the lands of the Shoshone Indians. Many cutthroats exceed 20 inches in the healthy riparian environment. The fishing experience has never been compromised by the addition of stocked trout or exotic species. This is a major reason to seriously hone in on Rocking Bar above other Western river ranches for sale.
Rocking Bar includes 9048 deeded acres and 6000 acres of grazing leases on BLM and Wyoming State land. Along with historic water rights capable of irrigating about 500 acres, the ranch produces 1500-2000 tons of hay every year. About 400 pairs of cows and calves are supported all year round.
Rocking Bar Ranch is accessible year-round on a paved road leading from Meeteetse, a Shoshone word for “meeting place.” The small historic Western town of 350 lies across the Greybull River from the ranch. Commercial air service is a half hour north in Cody, WY, the eastern gateway to Yellowstone National Park.
