Wakara River Ranch lies ten miles outside of Meeker, a traditional ranching community. Known for its hotel made famous by Teddy Roosevelt during a hunt, Meeker also hosts a world-class sheepdog competition at the end of summer. Meeker offers airline service and access to Interstate 70. This perfect Colorado ranch for sale lies conveniently located two hours from Grand Junction and 90 minutes from skiing at Steamboat Springs.
How did the White River become one of Colorado’s best trophy trout rivers? Rain saturation and snow melt from the fertile limestone geology of the White River Plateau makes its way into the river. Wakara trout feast on an exceptional biomass of insect and forage fish life. Runs, pools, and riffles delight fly-fishers on a private quarter-mile of White River. It is no wonder why rainbow and brown trout often reach 22 to 26 inches and 4 to 7 pounds.
Hunting experiences never end in these parts. The largest elk herd in the nation lives in White River country. Elk, mule deer, and antelope spread out over Wakara River Ranch and the nearby Oak Ridge State Wildlife Area and Routt National Forest. Watch out for bull elk scoring 300+ and 190-class mule deer. Then we have the wild turkeys, too. So, when it comes to hunting land, Wakara offers the best.
