640 Acres! A Full Section of Land and Half of Devil Lake!
Bly, Oregon 97622
Located in southeastern Klamath County, outside of the community of Bly, Oregon, down a quiet country road, is a rare opportunity to purchase an entire section of land (640 Acres) that is surrounded by Forest Service land on three sides and approximately 50 acres of the property includes Devil Lake!
This large property could be the perfect spot to establish the legacy ranch you have been dreaming of as a place for your family to gather, make memories and pass on to your children, preserve the natural environment for future generations, or to live off the land. There is so much to see, and so many possibilities to make this land everything you have been dreaming of!
Take a stroll down to your private lakefront, depending on the lake level, there are approximately 4,500 to 5,000 feet of lake frontage on the property! Spend time relaxing by the water or fishing for the bass, catfish, and bluegill in the lake, that the locals tell us they catch there regularly! The lake is split almost in half, with one half included with this parcel, and the other half on Forest Service land.
The terrain varies from flat to gently rolling hills. There are areas of densely forested juniper, pines, evergreens, and birch, to rangelands covered in sage and native grasses. The property is approximately 4,800 to 5,000 foot elevation.
There are high mountain meadows, several streams, some of which are seasonal, areas of wetland wildflowers and grasses, and an abundance of wildlife! The winters are cold here, but with the arid environment, the snowfall is not too heavy. The summers are mild, warm, and pleasant.
The area’s fauna includes many deer, elk, antelope, bears, beavers, raccoons, squirrels, and many others. Klamath County is in the Pacific Flyway for Migratory Birds. Over 300 species of birds are in the area, including many songbirds, birds of prey, ducks, geese, and even pelicans! There was a pelican pair resting on Devil Lake while we were there! Many birds of prey including eagles, osprey, and hawks are seen frequently. Pheasants, quail, and grouse also inhabit the area.
From almost any spot as you look out across the property, the surrounding views are incredible! From views of the birds landing on Devil Lake, the snow-capped Gearhart Mountain and foothills to the north, northwest into the Sprague River Valley, to the meadows, hills, and rangeland of this incredible 640-acre property, the tranquility of the landscape fills your spirit. It is peaceful, serene, and absolutely breathtaking!
The property has a history of ranching that is evident in the old corrals and cattle trails that have become an ingrained part of the land. There is even an old cowboy campsite! The property is partially fenced, and cattle guards are in place on Fishhole Creek Road (USFS Road 3790) which passes through the property for easy access. The road is very well maintained by the US Forest Service. The road is named after Fishhole Creek which runs on Forest Service land to the west of the property.
The property is currently Zoned F with a property class listed as Recreational Vacant. This zoning allows for many possibilities. With a property of this size, there are many spots that would make gorgeous homesites! It would need a well and septic if you were to build. Power is to the adjoining parcel, although quite a distance away. The area receives about 300 days of sunshine per year, which would be perfect for solar power. Please check with the governing jurisdictions on your plans and permitting process.
Although the property is rural, there are permanent neighbors and family ranches in the area. It is only about 7 miles to the community of Bly, Oregon so it's only a quick trip into town for fuel, groceries, supplies, or a meal and evening out.
This truly is a unique opportunity to purchase a lakefront property of this size, with so many possibilities for someone who can dream on a large scale, with an undeveloped property as your canvas.
