Welcome to the Scalp Butte Ranch located on the banks of the Mighty Missouri River outside of Fairfax, South Dakota. The Scalp Butte Ranch consists of 1,570+/- Deed Acres , 230+/- leased acres, and over 3.5+/- miles of Missouri River frontage. The ranch has a beautiful newly built 2 bedroom and 2 bathroom main house, along with a 2 bedroom and 2 bathroom guest cabin and 40x60 heated shop.LandIn the fall the river resides exposing hundreds of miles of beaches, making for great recreational opportunities, exploring, and discovering.  In addition to unparalleled river frontage, the Scalp Butte Ranch has multiple year-round creeks flowing  through it offering great watering sources for cattle, and wildlife. The ranch is cross fenced for rotational cattle grazing along with an option for additional State leased acres. The current owners have been tremendous stewards to the land. The ranch is in phenomenal shape, with newly cleaned out ponds, lush green pastures, and clean roads free of trees and limbs. The current owners have leased the grazing and are meticulous in not over grazing the pastures.
Scalp Butte Ranch is truly a legacy property; with over 3 ½ miles of river frontage, good road systems and incredible improvements, this property is undoubtedly one-of-a-kind. From the ranch’s large mesa, you can look out over the entire property as it spans out over the Missouri River. The magnitude of the river is easily felt as you drive down to the sandy beaches and stand on the river’s shore. In the Fall, the river withdraws – exposing hundreds of miles of beach, which makes for great recreational opportunities, exploring or discovering.
ImprovementsThe main house on the ranch was built in 2018 and offers beautiful Soapstone and Carrera Marble countertops, along with hand distressed maple wood floors throughout. No detail has been spared in this stunning 2 bedroom / 2 bathroom, 2,600 square-foot ranch style home with an additional 800 square-foot finished basement. The kitchen boasts all high- end appliances and features spray foam insulation to keep it warm in the winter and cool in the summer. The house also has a propane back-up generator – giving the ranch owner piece of mind through the winter months. The guest cabin situated just to the West of the main house offers 2 bedrooms and 2 newly remodeled bathrooms, along with a full kitchen and back patio overlooking the river. The large, 40×60 heated shop offers a great space for equipment storage and work projects, and features thick 6” concrete, spray foam insulation throughout and a warm water well which provides additional heat.  The Scalp Butte Ranch is as unique as it is rare. From its incredible river frontage, great recreation, diverse land features and spectacular improvements, ranches of this size and caliber rarely become available. Come see for yourself…
RecreationThe hunting on Scalp Butte Ranch is truly something extraordinary. Trophy Whitetail and Mule Deer call the ranch home and can be found in good numbers throughout the property. Turkey hunting on the ranch will rival that of any in the state of South Dakota. The ranch sits adjacent to the Scalp Creek Game Production Area which offers a boat ramp, fish cleaning station, camping spots and is just a short 3- minute drive from the house! The Walleye fishing on this stretch of the river is world-famous, yet with the amount of surface water – in part from Lake Francis Case – the fishing is not crowded.
