The 800 acre “Flenner Place” is located in the north east corner of California, along the border of the Tulelake National Wildlife Refuge. It consists of two separate parcels. One parcel is 160 acres and completely surrounded by government ground. There is an old well and old sheepherder’s cabin on it. The 640 acre parcel is mostly surrounded by government ground, but shares a small portion of one border with the Winema Lodge. There are geothermal possibilities and some farmable land. There are many outdoor opportunities to take advantage of such as big game hunting (Mule Deer – with possibility of landowner tags), upland game hunting and water fowl hunting, or bird watching. The Klamath Basin is in the heart of the Pacific Flyway and is famous for its waterfowl numbers. It is also home to a large concentration of wintering Bald Eagles. This great recreational acreage is just minutes from the Lava Beds National Monument and just 15 minutes southwest of Tulelake, CA. It’s just over 40 minutes from the city of Klamath Falls, in southern Oregon. Gorgeous views from the 640 acre parcel include Mt. Shasta, Tulelake, Tulelake Wildlife Refuge, Valley, Mt. Dome and the Cascade Range. Both parcels sit between Lower Klamath Wildlife Refuge and Tulelake Wildlife Refuge. If you’re looking for a recreational get-away, this is a quiet spot with many acres of government land nearby!

The ranch is next door to Winema Hunting Lodge. http://www.winemalodge.com/
Easiest access is through the Lava Beds Park entrance, but the property does have an easement down Hill Road off of State Line Road. Roads are not the greatest and use caution when driving to the ranch if it has rained recently.
The ranch is in close proximity to Lava Beds, Town of Tulelake, and two Wildlife Refuges, and Captain Jack’s Stronghold.
The ranch shares a boundary with the Tule Lake National Wildlife, which covers 39,116 acres in the Tule Lake basin. The refuge is a staging area for migrating waterfowl such as the Greater White-fronted Goose, Snow Goose, Ross’s Goose, and Cackling Goose. Local habitat types include uplands vegetated with grasses and shrubs such as sagebrush, and wetlands such as marshes. The refuge also includes about 19,000 acres of cropland leased to growers. Crops include potato, onion, horseradish, alfalfa, and cereals. Recreation opportunities and public services include wildlife viewing and photography, education, and hunting.
Lava Beds National Monument is just a few minutes from the ranch. The Monument lies on the northeastern flank of the Medicine Lake Volcano. The region in and around Lava Beds Monument is unique because it lies on the junction of the Sierra-Klamath, Cascade, and the Great Basin physiographic provinces. It has numerous lava tube caves, with twenty five having marked entrances and developed trails for public access and exploration. The monument also offers trails through the high Great Basin xeric shrub-land desert landscape and the volcanic fields. http://www.nps.gov/labe/index.htm
The Lower Klamath National Wildlife Refuge, established by President Theodore Roosevelt in 1908, was the first waterfowl refuge in the United States. It has a total area of 50,912.68 acres. The refuge includes shallow freshwater marshes, open water, grassy uplands, and croplands that are intensively managed to provide foraging and breeding habitat for waterfowl and other animals. The refuge provides wildlife-related public services, including education, hunting, and viewing and photography opportunities. Avian species on the refuge include the bald eagle, golden eagle, American white pelican, white-faced ibis, snow goose, Ross’s goose, greater white-fronted goose, Canada goose, peregrine falcon, northern pintail, mallard, gadwall, canvasback, western grebe, eared grebe, black tern, and tricolored blackbird.
