About this Ranch
Welcome to Hot Springs Creek Ranch, an exquisite property encompassing over 1,535+/- deeded acres and historically holding a BLM lease of 700+/- acres on the east boundary. This scenic and productive hay farm and ranch, located east of Gunnison, Colorado, offers recreational opportunities that cater to both nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts alike.
The ranch boasts 600± irrigated acres, allowing for the production of around 350± tons of high-quality grass hay annually. Hot Springs Creek flows through the property, providing ample water to feed the irrigated acreage and contributing to the ranch's livelihood.
Aside from hay production, the property has supported 100 cow-calf pairs year-round, making it a versatile and sustainable agricultural venture. Moreover, additional water shares from Hot Springs Reservoir, located on State of Colorado Lease land a few miles north of the property, further supplement the adjudicated water rights.
Preserving the natural beauty and character of the land, a conservation easement held by The Nature Conservancy protects the vast majority of the ranch, ensuring it remains untouched for generations to come. However, there is an unencumbered 40-acre tract that offers potential for unrestricted development or building. Access to this ranch is facilitated by County Road 887, a well-maintained, year-round, gravel county road, making your drive effortless.
Surrounded by Bureau of Land Management (BLM) land and connected to the Gunnison National Forest, the property opens doors to a realm of adventure. From incredible mule deer and elk hunting to fishing, hiking, camping, and ATV-ing, the recreational possibilities are endless.
The property is located in Game Management Unit (GMU) 551, granting the landowner eligibility for mule deer licenses through the Landowner Preference Program. Additionally, the area offers Over-The-Counter license seasons for elk, appealing to hunting enthusiasts seeking remarkable opportunities.
With its breathtaking landscape, abundant wildlife, and diverse recreational options, Hot Springs Creek Ranch is a great opportunity. Whether you're captivated by the scenic beauty, drawn to the productive hay farm and ranch, or seeking adventures in the great outdoors, this property promises an exceptional experience that will create cherished memories to last a lifetime.
