With its half-mile of East Gallatin River frontage, peaceful seclusion, great fishing, abundant wildlife, and convenience to Bozeman—the 60-acre Gallatin Reserve is a rare piece of Gallatin Valley dream property. Bald eagles, sandhill cranes, wild turkeys, hawks, deer and pheasants are plentiful, and waterfowl are constantly moving up and down the river. Gallatin Reserve’s seclusion is created by the East Gallatin River and stands of mature cottonwoods on one side, a reclaimed railroad berm planted with spruce trees on the other side, and more spruce trees plus private, large-acreage lands to the northwest. The acres that are not wetland, river corridor, and wildlife habitat are freshly planted into alfalfa and native grasses for hay production, horse pasture, and additional wildlife benefits. The half-mile of Gallatin River on the property holds large brown trout and rainbows in a classic riffle, run and pool fishery. Fish average twelve to sixteen inches with trophies hitting up to ten pounds. Hungarian partridge are common on the property as well, and waterfowling for ducks and geese is superb. Also, hunters can use a bow or shotgun when hunting for trophy whitetails. An approved and installed septic system and new graveled driveway make this spot ready to build your dream home by the river. There are currently no other parcels available with this much river and privacy so close to the conveniences of Bozeman.
