What to Expect

Lori Lotton and her family moved to Crawford, NE over 25 years ago. Originally cattle ranchers in rural Montana, the ranching lifestyle runs through the blood of the Lotton family. Now located in the remote countryside of the Sandhills, the Lotton Ranch offers a peaceful escape from people and welcomes you into paradise.

There is no timber or treelines on the property. However, the two local reservoirs and the beautiful, rolling grasslands provide a natural habitat for mule deer, antelope, and coyotes. Also, the land is only grazed during the summer months and left idle from November 1st through the end of May, allowing wildlife to explode throughout the property. 

Crawford, NE is just 25 miles away and offers lodging arrangements. Chadron also offers lodging arrangements and is 30 miles away. Tent camping and small trailers are allowed on the property. However, due to the soil type, it is not accessible to an RV. This soil is heavy and ‘gumbo-like’ so when it starts to rain, we recommend finding shelter. 

There is no set minimum or maximum number of days when booking. Most of this property has reliable cell service. 

We are looking forward to sharing our property with you, but ask you to please respect the land as if it were your own.

    The property worked out well for antelope. There appeared to be a good population on the property and in the general area. We saw 4 good bucks on the property the first day and 3 or 4 more on the neighboring properties. We did not see any deer in the area. Lori was very accommodating and easy to work with. I appreciate her opening up the property to hunting.

We ourselves are not avid hunters, but we are landowners and like to share our assets with those who are not landowners and like to hunt. We particularly like to see young people enjoying the land, and learning respect for what is out there in our great country.
