Creek Ranch is Routt County's most unique, environmentally-sensitive, low-density ranch and open space preserve. Three easements forever protect the Ranch from further development or change. Homestead building parcels are strategically located to minimally impact the abundant wildlife, the ongoing ranching operation, and the open space. Each homestead owner will enjoy, in addition to their private homestead purchase, ownership in common of 1,280 acres. The Ranch's 1,708 deeded acres, coupled with its additional leases on adjacent State and BLM ground, give homestead owners control of approximately 2,400 acres upon which they can ride horseback, hike, cross-country ski, fish and, in specified areas, hunt and ride snow machines. Building covenants allow each homestead to consist of a main house, attached caretaker quarters, and barn. Central water, underground power, and telephone are provided to each homestead. Amenities include over 20 miles of well-maintained trails for horseback riding and three miles of world class trout fishing along Trout Creek. There are also three large stocked lakes available to the fishing and boating enthusiasts. Hunting is permitted on the ranch, and several trophy bull elk have been harvested. Also present on the ranch are deer, bear, and numerous other types of small game. Owners also enjoy the use of a large luxury guest house at Headquarters, lake complete with picnic shelter, fire pit, and dock. Equine facilities for owners include paddocks, a barn with stalls, washing area and tack room, riding arena, and horse shelters.
