Burns Park Ranch
Burns Park Ranch is +/- 166 acres of prime Colorado big game hunting heaven! Located in Game Management Unit 50, this property has the perfect mix of open meadows, aspen groves, dark timber, and live water. Allen Creek runs through the property for three-quarters of a mile and encompasses numerous beaver ponds. To top it off, this remote property is completely surrounded by hundreds of thousands of acres of National Forest.
This pristine mountain property is located at the end of a Forest Service Road and has a large gate to keep the public out. An old homestead cabin sits in the middle of the property and one can only imagine the life our forefathers had living there. Not far from the cabin is a spring-fed stock tank that helps water the cattle and wildlife that call this property home. While unit 50 is a limited draw unit, this property qualifies for Colorado Big Game Landowner Vouchers. A grazing lease is in place and will continue with the land, allowing a local rancher to graze his cows on the property for up to 45 days in the Spring, and up to 45 days in the Fall. This helps keep the property zoned agricultural, which is a requirement for applying in the Landowner Voucher program.
The surrounding Pike National Forest, and this property in particular, is home to just about every game animal you can think of, including; Trophy Elk, Mule Deer, Black Bear, Moose, Turkey, Bobcat, Grouse, and numerous other small game. With resident Elk, Deer, and Bear on the property year-around, you have just as good of chance of killing a big bull with your bow in September as you do with your rifle in November. Allen Creek is a year-round creek that serves as a water source for the wild game. The willows that line the banks of the creek are irresistible to the Shiras Moose that travel the creek, while the dark timber and Aspens are the perfect combination to hold Elk and Deer nearby.
Located outside the small mountain town of Lake George, you are in a great location to access many of Colorado's most famous recreational destinations, including; the South Platte River, Woodland Park, Elevenmile Reservor, the "Dream Stream", Cripple Creek, the Arkansas River, and Breckenridge Ski Area. In addition, Lake George is a short drive back down the hill to Colorado Springs, Denver, and the rest of the Front Range.
