Sims Creek Ranch Summary
Standing sentinel at the south end of the South Park National Heritage area is the hulking 11,500 foot high Thirtyninemile Mountain. At its eastern flank in the Ponderosa Pine and Aspens, the 1,200+/- acre Sims Creek Ranch gently unfurls to meet Eleven Mile Canyon Reservoir. Between those trees and the reservoir are lush and productive hay meadows. This rare assemblage of land is conveniently located approximately 2 hours from Denver and approximately 1.5 hours to Colorado Springs and each of their international airports strikes a perfect balance between recreational opportunities not only inside the boundaries of the ranch but also all of the opportunities the area has become popular for. Expansion opportunities exist next door: Confluence Land Company is also marketing the Rogers Mountain Ranch comprised of an additional 1,250+/- acres including a luxury 10,000 custom rock and timber lodge home.
Sims Creek Ranch presents an investor a perfect opportunity at lot development as the ranch is one of the last remaining large tracts available in the area. An investor can enjoy low carry costs with this agriculturally taxed parcel. Enjoy the big game hunting vouchers awarded to the ranch through the Colorado Landowner Preference Program yourself together with the peace and serenity on Sims Creek Ranch. While developing your dream ranch home overnight in the recently renovated two homes on the ranch. The "Gate House" is two bed, one bath off grid log home served by LP heat. The "Corral House" is a two story, three bedroom and two bath log home served by grid power and LP heat. Near the Corral House is an extensible set of vintage barns that have been extensively repaired and restored with an acre and half open corral in front. Within this complex is a modern tac room. The development opportunity at Sims Creek Ranch is diverse given the demand and conservation values in the area.
Sims Creek Ranch is a true sporting retreat. Its bounds are nearly limitless for hunting as it is adjacent to both Pike National Forest and BLM public lands. The ranch is located entirely within Game Unit 58 which is a draw only unit unlike other units in the area which offer over the counter hunting tags for Elk. The ranch is eligible for Colorado's Landowner Preference Program and has historically received an average of four hunting tags for Elk, Mule Deer and the occasional Pronghorn Antelope. Enjoy your private boundary with the Pike National Forest and BLM as a jumping off point into the elk woods.
Within the ranch's boundaries are nine ponds where the prolific numbers of such antelope as well as big game, birds and water foul all nourish themselves. Anglers will rejoice at the number of trout ponds on the ranch. The angling program on the ranch takes full advantage of the views including the shoulder of Thirtyninemile Mountain, the granite outcroppings of Eleven Mile Canyon Reservoir and the lush hay meadows on the ranch. Fishing opportunities do not end within the borders of the ranch. There are three reservoirs and at over 6,000 surface acres for your still water fishing desires. If additional angling pursuits are desired, fly fishing on the “Dream Stream”, a Gold Medal designated stretch of the South Platte River which runs through Elevenmile Canyon and Spinney Mountain reservoirs can be enjoyed as it is only a ten-minute drive from the ranch. Laiden with aquatic insects and other aquatic biomass from Spinney Mountain Reservoir which supports trout and salmon you will quickly understand from where its nickname is earned.
