Enrolled in Government Program
Formerly dry farmland and grazing ground, this property is subdivided into six contiguous parcels with seasonal county road access off Blind Springs Road and has multi-use potential. The terrain ranges from level to moderate slope with draws and a two-track providing access to much of the acreage. Five hundred sixty acres have been in CRP with approximately six years left on a ten-year renewal. These five hundred sixty acres of farm ground have a history of dry farming wheat, safflower, and cattle grazing. The ground had been farmed approximately fifteen years ago, and grass was replanted on a portion of the acreage approximately three years ago.
The level to gradual sloping farm ground lends itself to off-the-grid residential or recreational build sites with expansive panoramic views of the rolling hills and Snake River in the distance. Solar power or a portable generator is recommended since power is unavailable nearby, and a well must be drilled for culinary purposes. Bring your home and garden plans and enjoy viewing wildlife from the comfort of your porch. The expansive terrain offers endless opportunities to explore or develop.
This property has good genetics for mature mule deer and elk and is currently enrolled in Access Yes! This is a voluntary landowner incentive program with Idaho Fish and Game, where landowners specify access conditions that best meet their needs. In addition, the program provides access to wildlife that may cause depredation problems, improves relationships between landowners and sportsmen, and improves hunter ethics. Fort Hall Indian Reservation borders the property to the east, and private agricultural land borders the remainder of the property except for a quarter mile bordering BLM ground to the south. This limits the hunting pressure and creates habitat for mule deer and elk.
American Falls Reservoir and historic hydroelectric dam is the largest reservoir on the Snake River and is about 26 miles away, offering boating, fishing, and swimming and is a haven for birdwatchers. The Sportsman’s Park, Seagull Bay Yacht Club, and Oregon Trail Sportsman access all provide great boat launching access and amenities on the reservoir. Massacre Rocks State Park and Register Rock Historic Site are in the area and rich in history and year-round recreation, offering miles of hiking trails, rock climbing routes, Snake River access, Oregon Trail history, and geologic wonders.
Other nearby attractions include Minidoka Falls, Minidoka National Wildlife Refuge, Rupert Country Club golf course, Rupert Historic District, and Minidoka County Historical Museum. Don’t miss out; call Dave and Ann to schedule a tour.
