The beautiful views from the south porch of the Shippert Cabin extend west to Hazelton Peak, the Hazelton Pyramid and Hesse Mountain.

Looking south over the property, moose, elk and deer have been seen in the swale below.

The Shippert Cabin is situated on 6.71± acres of land identified as Tract 5C of the Skyline Peaks Subdivision within the SENE quarter of Township 48 North and Range 84 West, 6th PM, Johnson County, Wyoming. Access to the property is off of U.S. Highway 16 via the Hazelton Road and a private road known as Piton Place Road. From downtown Buffalo, the intersection with Hazelton Road is approximately 27 miles west on Highway 16. Following Hazelton Road south for ~1.4 miles, Piton Place Road begins at an orange access gate. The property is about ½ mile west of the gate.


The Shippert Cabin is located within the Skyline Peaks Subdivision and can be considered a “multi-use” property. Direct access from the Shippert property onto State of Wyoming lands and adjoining National Forest lands is available just across the fence and opens up thousands of acres of public land for recreational use. The location of the cabin only about 1.4 miles from the north end of the Hazelton Road makes this property accessible for an extended part of the year. While quite accessible, the cabin is also quite private in that the subdivision gate remains closed. There are neighboring cabins to the east and to the west.

The cabin is conveniently located for hunting, fishing, and cross-country recreation such as hiking, horseback riding, or ATV riding.

The property is located in the following hunt areas: Elk Hunt Area 34 which is a limited quota area, Deer Hunt Area 30 which is a general license area (for Wyoming residents) or Region Y (for nonresidents), Antelope Hunt Area 20 which is a limited quota area, and Moose Hunt Area 34 which is also a limited quota area.

There is a spring development in the swale known as Malson Draw nearing the south boundary of the property. A water right, named Shippert Spring #1, has been permitted and completed as P57317.0W. The permit shows an appropriation of 5 gallons per minute, a 3’ total depth, and a 3’ static water level for the flowing well. Some attempts have been made to pump water to the cabin but they were met with mixed success. Currently, it is believed that there is no pumping or conveyance system in place to utilize the spring.

Built in 1981, the Shippert Cabin has been a mountain getaway for the past 35 years for family and friends who enjoy fishing in the summer and hunting in the fall.

Nestled in the shade of the beautiful forest surrounded by 6.71 acres of private land, the quiet solitude and spectacular scenery make this a “little piece of paradise” where one can relax and truly appreciate the wonders of nature’s beauty.

The quaint rustic cabin offers the ultimate mountain camping experience and retreat away from the hustle-bustle of busy lifestyles. The main floor contains a small kitchen complete with refrigerator, cook stove, built-in sink and cupboards, a dining area and living area. Currently, there is a double bed on the main floor near the back of the cabin. There are five more beds in the loft.

The logs for the cabin are squared off on the interior walls. Electricity is available on the main level of the cabin with propane backup or, for a truly rustic feel, one may use the propane lights and reserve the electricity for special occasions. A wood stove provides heat throughout the cabin. For plumbing needs, the current owners haul water for their kitchen use. There is a partial indoor bathroom with a shower and sink that was built for privacy and a sun-shower was used as the water supply. The property also has an outhouse while a porta-potty has been useful inside.

The rustic log garage is constructed with fully round logs with a single overhead door and is very useful for storing ATVs, snow machines, and firewood.
