Double Rocker Ranch
The Double Rocker Ranch is located in one of the most beautiful and underrated locations in the state of Wyoming. The ranch consists of +/- 667 contiguous acres and is just a stone’s throw away from the Colorado state line. The rare combination of endless views, vast recreational opportunities, and private location are some attributes that owning the Double Rocker Ranch provides.
Whether you are a hardcore hunter, avid fly-fisherman, horse lover, or hiker, this property will deliver in spades! The crown jewel of the property is the pond that is fed by Sand Creek. The pond was professionally engineered to provide the perfect habitat and temperature to grow and keep giant brown, rainbow, and tiger trout. Waterfowl use this protected body of water throughout the fall and spring seasons, allowing the duck hunter in the family to get their fix without ever leaving the ranch.
As great as the fishing is on the property, the big game hunting is equally impressive. Herds of Elk and Mule Deer call the Double Rocker Ranch home. The hard-to-find combination of lush natural grasses, year-round water sources, protective sagebrush, grass and mountain shrubs, and privacy that is unmatched in the area. Year after year, hunters successfully harvest trophy bulls, great Mule Deer, and the occasional Pronghorn Antelope on the property. General Elk tags are available for both rifle and archery seasons so long as the harvest occurs off of the National Forest. There are also type 6 (cow/calf) Elk tags readily available that have a five-and-a-half month long season.
These recreational opportunities provide enjoyment for the next owner of the property and an additional source of income via hunting, fishing, and grazing leases on the property.

The Double Rocker Ranch boasts a well-built, off-the-grid home that overlooks the pond and provides almost endless views of the snow-capped mountains of Colorado. The house has 3 bedrooms, 3 baths, a craft room, a wet bar, tile floors, a separate dining room, and a large deck to enjoy the bright sun and fresh air. In addition, there is an attached garage, storage room, and detached shop. Located just down the hill from the home is a barn/workshop that can be used for equipment storage. The ranch is well-fenced along the perimeter as well as around the pond. Cattle pens and a corral provide a central location for sorting cows. Finally, a homestead cabin below the pond could be fixed up to work as a guest or ranch manager cabin.

The property itself sits atop Haygood Canyon and provides the ideal jumping-off point to access almost 20,000 public acres of City of Cheyenne land, which borders 28 square miles of the Soapstone Prairie Natural Area in Colorado. These areas provide an amazing variety of deep canyons, vast prairies, and miles upon miles of trails. The general public very lightly uses this area, and seeing other recreationalists is rare.
As private and secluded as the Double Rocker Ranch is, it is conveniently located less than 45 minutes from both the capital city of Cheyenne and the University of Wyoming’s home of Laramie. In addition, you can be in the Northern Colorado towns of Fort Collins, Loveland, and Windsor in just over an hour. Each city provides its unique set of world-class restaurants, museums, universities, shopping, and entertainment.
- End of road privacy
- Close proximity to Cheyenne, Laramie, and Fort Collins, CO.
- Borders close to 50,000 acres of city-owned natural areas
It’s easy for brokers to say that this property “checks all the boxes,” but more often than not, they don’t. The Double Rocker Ranch is the real deal! A peaceful and private property that is also close to the conveniences that larger cities offer. A ranch that is laid out perfectly to provide an abundance of hunting, fishing, and recreational opportunities without ever having to leave the property. For longer hikes, horseback rides, or hunting adventures, the immense amount of lightly used public lands is just over the perimeter fence. Stand-alone improvements that aren’t tied to the grid provide the freedom and independence that is so sought after. All of this is protected by a conservation easement that protects the land from future development. Call agent Mike Callan today to experience this incredible property for yourself!
