Colorado ranches for sale: Elk Fork Ranch, near Kremmling in the heart of Colorado’s historic Middle Park, overflows with production, recreation and investment values. Two significant trout streams meet on the ranch and are the arteries of this sprawling 3,454+/- acre property. Historically, the ranch has been an excellent hay-producer, given its senior water rights capable of irrigating 600 acres of meadow, but this Colorado ranch is about much more than agriculture. Between the two streams on this fishing property, seven miles of superb fly fishing are available in waters that can produce fish over 18 inches or so and can keep any angler with a light rod delighted for days. Many more miles of seldom-fished public water is adjacent to the ranch, and stillwater fishing is available in three trout-filled ponds.
Big game hunters, too, won’t be disappointed here. With this Colorado hunting Ranch’s rich bottomlands and adjacent sagebrush and forested foothills, elk and mule deer herds thrive year-round. Trophy mule deer measuring in excess of 200” can be found, as well as abundant herds of elk, moose, antelope, bear and mountain lion, both on the ranch and adjacent public lands.
Improvements on the ranch can be described as “luxuriously rustic,” and are very well suited to guests. Included are the owner’s home, a lodge, barn and entertainment area, staff housing, hay barn and shop. With Kremmling and its private-jet capable airport nearby, Elk Fork Ranch is readily accessible year-round. Downhill skiing is available in three directions, each only an hour or so away: in Steamboat Springs to the north, Winter Park to the east, and Copper Mountain, Breckenridge and Keystone to the south.
