Cramer Springs is a 1,320 acre contiguous property adjoining State ownership along its western boundary. Several small, perennial springs and streams can be found across the ownership. Gated access enhances privacy to the majority of the property. Young stands of conifer trees provide cover and habitat for deer, elk and other wildlife that call this area home. Habitat improvements and restricted access would only improve the quality of hunting on this property. There are a number of locations to develop an off-grid cabin or lavish lodge.
