Badger Creek Recreational Retreat – Salida, Colorado
+- 150 Acre Public Land, Inholding, Rustic Cabin, & Studio Featuring Expansive Views of the Sangre De Cristo Mountains, An Exclusive Section of Badger Creek plus up & downstream access, and an extensive trail network.
A little over 9 miles as the crow flies outside of the mountain community of Salida and just 3 miles above the Arkansas River corridor sets the Badger Creek Retreat. With spectacular views of the stunning Sangre de Cristo mountains the property is a private recreational retreat where about 1/3rd mile of Badger Creek meanders through the property supporting healthy riparian vegetation along with a rich fishery. Completely surrounded by and within the midst of public lands, the privacy afforded the retreat is further bolstered by direct access in all directions to additional recreational opportunities.
The property has been placed within a Conservation Easement (see documents section) with the Central Colorado Conservancy to preserve the wide range of habitat, wildlife, open spaces, scenic enjoyment and it’s agricultural values while providing the added benefit of incredibly low property taxes ($1358 in 2020).
A mixture of open grassy meadow, rolling mountain terrain, and steep rocky crags along with well spaced Pinyon, Juniper and deciduous trees, the property offers a diverse background supported by a well kept and appointed rustic cabin..
