When it comes to idyllic western landscapes, Clarks Fork Canyon Meadows certainly fits the description.

The adage applies very well in this case – “The house is yet to be built, but the view and landscape are finished to perfection”.

East Entrance of Yellowstone National Park, WY
Clarks Fork Canyon Meadows nestles against the base of the Beartooth Mountains of the Absaroka Mountain Range, straddling the Clarks Fork of the Yellowstone River, and is bordered by Wyoming State Land on the south and Bureau of Land Management land on the east and a portion of the north side. Nearby access up the Clarks Fork Canyon provides endless opportunities for hiking, hunting, fishing, floating, climbing, horseback riding, and other outdoor recreational pursuits.
Much of the land consists of sub-irrigated meadows and cottonwoods along the river and slopes upward toward the granite cliffs along the canyon walls. Worthy of note is the presence of the private bridge across the Clarks Fork River which is the main access route onto the Property. This bridge is one of few bridges across this wild river that ever will be constructed.
