ArkValley River Ranch
ArkValley River Ranch is an eclectic property with endless opportunities from exceptional hunting to income-producing farm and gravel pit. A 2-story farmhouse set on the bluffs offers impressive views. A garage/shop, horse barn, and paddocks complete the setting for a rural Colorado lifestyle.
There are 40 acres of farm ground along with water rights, including 0.6 CFS from Enterprise Ditch, Arkansas River priority #20 via Highline Canal, and 60% interest in Maclennan Well with a rate of 390 GPM, as well as three Orchard Park water taps. The ranch also has a 92-acre, 52 acres permitted gravel pit, which is currently under lease with the option to renew. The gravel pit produces an income of over $30,000 annually.
The Arkansas River is known for its trophy whitetail deer and waterfowl hunting. With increased animal density and lush habitat, the ArkValley River Ranch offers fantastic hunting opportunities for waterfowl, turkey, whitetail deer, and even elk. Located in Game Management Unit 128, the ranch qualifies for a Landowner deer tag and Over-The-Counter options for elk. Waterfowl hunting does not get much better with 3/4 +/- miles of river, and a pond, with an island along the river that adds to the exceptional waterfowl hunting.
ArkValley River Ranch is 8 miles West of Fowler, 23 miles East of Pueblo, 70 miles Southeast of Colorado Springs, and 140 miles Southeast of Denver. There is a daily jet service into Colorado Springs and Denver International Airport, as well as a local landing strip in Pueblo.
