Dennis Quaid’s ranch, Camp Warren Oates, a 418-acre ranch in the Paradise Valley, has been sold for $8.6 million, according to Raich Montana Properties, which represented the seller.
The deal earned the designation as 2013 Ranchland Deal of the Year, in the spring issue of The Land Report Magazine, a publication that tracks prestigious properties around the nation.
David Couch, a North Carolina real estate developer, bought the ranch.
The ranch is named for Oates, the late Hollywood actor whose property abutted that of his longtime friend and collaborator, movie director Sam Peckinpah. Oates played a variety of tough guys, many of them cowboys, during a long career. Peckinpah earned the nickname “Bloody Sam” for violence-filled movies, including “The Wild Bunch” and “Straw Dogs.”
Oates died in 1982 and Peckinpah died in 1984.
According to an article in The Land Report, Camp Warren Oates is a collection of 14 properties that Quaid assembled over the years after buying parcels from Oates and Peckinpah.
Camp Warren Oates is at the foot of Emigrant Peak, some 13 miles from Yellowstone National Park.
Rustic cabins owned by Oates and Peckinpah remained. The property also includes a 5,400-square-foot house built by Quaid.
