Gunnison Riverbanks Ranch – SOLD – One of kind property on the Gunnison River – Private fishing access


SOLD – Wow, world class fishing access at the fraction of the price of comparable properties throughout Gunnison County. This 3.26 acre parcel is located about 10 minutes north of Gunnison in the Gunnison Riverbanks Ranch, a 455 acre shared ranch. If you are looking for the ultimate, secluded fishing property with almost two miles of private river access on both sides of the Gunnison River, this is it! A shared guest house, game house, stocked lake and pond, adjacent to BLM and National Forest access, and a point system for one of the coveted local deer tags are some of the highlights that accompany owning a lot in this shared ranch. There are only 21 private lots in the Gunnison Riverbanks Ranch and 85% of the ranch is in a conservation easement. The easement provides all members fishing access along the banks of Gunnison River. The road systems are all established and maintained for year round access. BLM and National Forest land can be accessed just east of the parcel as it adjoins the ranch’s eastern border. The shared ranch has a common guest house, game house, and care-takers barn with upstairs living quarters. The barn has several bays that can be rented for storage and the two bedroom two bath guest house can be reserved by members for over-night use. Aside from the private access to nearly 2 miles of Gunnison River, the stocked lake, and stocked pond on the ranch there is also a small creek on the ranch called Scout’s Run. Rainbow trout and brown trout can be caught year round in these fisheries, but late August through November also provides opportunities to catch the Kokanee Salmon that run upstream from Blue Mesa Reservoir. There is no shortage of hunting opportunities as this property lies in game management unit (GMU) 55, which is one of the top quality deer units in the state and is also well known for its elk population! As a bonus, the ranch typically qualifies for 1 buck tag every year and there is a point system in place amongst members to qualify for this tag. There is also a landowner archery tag available. Members also have easy access to BLM and National Forest land behind the ranch. World class skiing is available just 25 miles away at Crested Butte Ski Area. Access to all of these activities is made easy by the Gunnison regional airport in Gunnison, Colorado. Plenty of restaurants, several grocery stores, sporting goods stores, fly shops, and a variety of small local shops are available. This property is a fisherman’s dream with endless fishing and other recreational opportunities! Build you dream home or just keep vacant and use the guest house for short term stays. Either way the fishing and hunting  is available to you as as owner at Gunnison Riverbanks Ranch. Very low taxes and reasonable HOA dues.
