The Elkhead Land has been owned by the same family for generations and has been nothing short of productive! Located in the beautiful rolling hills of northwest Colorado, this property borders Elkhead Reservoir State Park and has remarkable views of the lake and nearby mountains of Quaker Mountain, Black Mountain, and Bears Ears. With year-round access off County Road 29, this has potential to be the perfect place to build a permanent residency! Land The Elkhead Land consists of 396 acres more or less with approximately 250 acres that are being farmed. Of the 250 farmed acres, roughly 40 acres consist of dryland alfalfa, whereas the remaining 210 acres are planted into winter wheat. The land that surrounds the farm ground consists of rolling grass and sagebrush covered hills with Cottonwood Creek meandering throughout the bottom on the property.  Additionally, there is a good, running spring that flows into Cottonwood Creek. The abundancy of vegetation and water sources is excellent for livestock and wildlife that can frequently be found on the property such as antelope and deer. Located in unit 4, this property does qualify for landowner vouchers for deer and antelope, with over-the-counter opportunities for elk. Recreation The property borders Elkhead Reservoir State Park on the south side which provides a great view of the lake and easy access for fishing or swimming. The park surrounds and includes the 900 surface acre Elkhead Reservoir that primarily consists of warmwater fish species, including largemouth bass, black crappie, bluegill, and pike. Activities at the park include both non-electric and electric camping, fishing, boating, wildlife viewing, and hiking. Access to the main boat ramp and campground is less than 5 miles away! As of 2021, hunting in the area is also excellent for deer, elk, and antelope. Many different access points to hundreds of thousands of aces of National Forest are nearby which proves access to Quaker Mountain, Bears Ears and the Black Mountain Areas. The National Forest contains many tourist attractions, endless trails, beautiful camping locations, exceptional hunting, and countless alpine streams and lakes that offer great fishing! Many towns that are located within close proximity also provide many different attractions such as rafting and fishing the rivers, shopping in local businesses and stores, eating at restaurants, and several other annual events.   Location The land is accessed from County Road 29 which is a good, year-around maintained road, and is located approximately 25 minutes northeast from Craig, Colorado and 30 minutes northwest of Hayden, Colorado. Yampa Valley Regional Airport is also located in Hayden which is the closest source for air travel. For additional recreational opportunities and attractions, Steamboat Springs, Colorado is located just under 1 hour from the property.
