Close to Town:

Located just 15 minutes from Tonasket, WA (great pizza, thai food, coffee, banking, hospital, school, ag stores, building supplies, shipping, and even a new cannabis shop) and 15 minutes from a top quality Deer Processor (Dick Mickey's), this property makes the perfect location for adventure, views, and close access to town.

Mule Deer Heaven:

The mule deer population is outstanding. The ranch is located within Game Management Unit 204, ranked the best county in Washington State for top scoring Mule Deer. Contact us for a private viewing of our owner's trophy shots. Check out the county's hunting prospects guide here. There are also 2 seasons annually (a Spring and Fall season) for black bear.

You are within 15 minutes of custom deer processing that provides a variety of flavors, cuts and options and 30 minutes from our taxidermy friends that live on an Indian reservation.

Clean Title and Exclusive Public Land Access:

As a new owner, you will receive a warranty deed and survey + an exclusive pedestrian easement to 758 acres of neighboring Public Bureau of Land Management (Blm) Land that connects to our main road. This 758 acres is landlocked in the mountains and only accessible from our private road. This is the opportunity you've been waiting for to get a piece of the mountain + be able to hunt large acreage that is lesser known to the general public.

Driving Conditions:

The property itself is accessible all the way up the mountain by our private road which intersects with McCaughlin Canyon Road. Check our driving directions and photos for pictures of the gate and survey. We have installed a circular turnaround pad and driveway directly onto the property where conditions are best for parking, cabin installation and a view over the town. You can drive there by 2WD during the Spring, Summer and Fall. In heavy rain seasons or Winter, we recommend 4WD just in case for seasonal mud and snow. In Heavy Snow conditions we do not recommend driving at all, use a snowmobile or walk. Sections of the road that experience the most annual wear and tear have been graveled; overall road conditions are good. The road is generally at least 6' wide all the way to the top and we have been able to successfully haul cabins and heavy trucks all the way up.

There are 2 Options for Water:

Well Drilling and Spring Water (Hit and Miss):

There are overall a total of 2 producing wells, 2 hand-dug wells, 1 dry well and 3 separate year-round flowing springs that are known throughout our development. The producing wells have ranged from 180' in depth to 540' in depth. The dry well is approximately 300' deep. See well reports and producers in our land report below.

Bulk Water Storage from Tonasket (Recommended):

Both the Ace Hardware store and Lee Frank Mercantile Store in Tonasket offer solutions to purchase bulk water storage containers and options for pickup and delivery. This is a very affordable and sanitary approach for seasonal recreational usage compared with drilling a new well. 325 Gallon Tanks run ($400) and 2,500 Gallon thanks run ($1,500). Water is sold at an approximate rate of $651 per 500 Gallons (subject to change).

History of McCloughlin Canyon:

Just down the street from this property, you will drive past a lookout point in the canyon where a historical marker is placed. In July 1958, a group of Indians (upset by an increasing flow of miners heading for gold fields) lay in ambush through the length of the canyon. As 150 men led by David McCloughlin approached from the south, the warriors camouflaged their stone breastworks with branches. But their wilted leaves alerted McCloughlin's advance party so the Indians opened up prematurely. Firing continued for several hours near the mouth of the canyon. Three miners were killed. The caravan retreated to the Okanogan River and next day crossed over in rafts.

Ag Exemption:

20 acres land for sale in Okanogan, Washington benefits from an agricultural exemption with a small herd of cattle grazing the overall mountainside to keep the property taxes low and grass growth down to protect the land from wildfire risk.

Cell service:

Is excellent at the top of the mountain with good speeds from Verizon, At&T & T-Mobile enabling you to FaceTime off the bluff views. Service along the county road entrance and initial drive up the lower parts of the road is much more challenging. We recommend turning your GPS On before driving up McCaughlin Canyon road in case you temporarily lose service.

Recreational Purpose:

This ranchette enjoys low but sensible restrictions, allowing numerous uses:

Yurt and Cabin Builds and Commercial Rentals

Full Time Rv

Any Permanent Structures

Tiny Homes


Basic restrictions are in place to ensure properly handling of waste and wastewater, not leaving fires unattended, hunting or shooting on or over the easement roads, maintaining easement roads, and not using tents and lean-tos / shanties as permanent residences.

One of our customers built a yurt and deck with propane powered water heater and composting toilet.
