A ranch reminds us of the enduring bond we share with the land and wildlife. A bond intertwined with history, cherished stories, and a lifestyle of freedom and endless possibilities. This connection is especially true at Parker Creek Ranch, nestled in California’s most Northeastern County, Modoc. It is about ten minutes east of the community of Alturas, CA and encompasses 1,117.23 ± acres.

This is a turnkey ranch with extensive perimeter and cross-fencing, corrals, chutes, barns, round pen, outbuildings, and a fuel tank. Currently, there is an income-producing cattle lease. With 981 ± acres of rangeland and 136 ± acres of irrigated pasture, there is ample forage and water throughout the ranch for a successful livestock operation. Depending on the precipitation, the ranch supports around 100-150 ± pair seasonally. Water on the ranch includes two year-round creeks, Shields Creek and Parker Creek, ponds, and an ag well. There are established water rights from Shields Creek and Parker Creek.

Wildlife are plentiful on the ranch, including mule deer, quail, and bear. Frequent stories have been shared over who caught the biggest fish with bass, crappies, and blue gill all stocked in the pond near the home. Bald Eagles have been spotted flying over the house and snatching up bass from the pond. Legend has it that “Sturgeon Pond” on the property has some of the largest sturgeon in the area. Both Parker and Shields Creeks have rainbow and brook Trout. There is even a homemade water slide into the pond!

There are additional outdoor recreational opportunities nearby the ranch with Modoc National Wildlife Refuge, home to a variety of migratory birds, ducks, geese, nesting birds, and mammals such as pronghorn antelope, otters, hares, rabbits, and bobcats. Just 12 miles from the ranch, Warner National Forest has over 80 miles of trails for hiking and riding, fishing, and camping. Hunters can take advantage of the abundant opportunities nearby for big game, small game, and waterfowl.

Situated a short walk from tranquil Shields Creek and Parker Creek is the comfortable 2,150 SF 3 bedroom/2 bathroom home overlooking the pond. A large open kitchen with an island and dining area features large windows and skylights that bathe the entirety of the room in natural light. Start your morning off on the patio, sipping your coffee while taking in the expansive views of the Warner Mountains and beautiful irrigated pastures. After a full day, unwind in the hot tub or gaze at the stars from the unique sunroom. A detached converted well house provides additional space for family or guests. There is also a four-car garage and shed near the home for storage and parking space. For extra peace of mind, the home is equipped with a 20 kW generator.

Parker Creek Ranch, on the market for the first time since 1988, awaits the next stewards to write the next chapter in its rich history.
