Access 2 miles of Cochetopa Creek on a family-owned cattle ranch. Fly fishing doesn’t get more secluded than this. Fish sizes average 10-16″. There are some larger brown trout lurking in the deeper pools. This is great 3-weight water for the feisty brown trout enthusiast. This property is about 45 minutes from downtown Gunnison. Camping is permitted here. River access is manageable for everyone. You’ll have to do a little walking but getting to the creek is very open and easy.

Fields are irrigated on average, between May 1st til August 1st. Be prepared for boggy and knee-high grass. After August, the fields are mowed and access is easier. There is barbed wire to cross at all entries.

Please allow up to 2 business days for booking confirmations.

Due to livestock and other concerns, dogs and other pets are NOT permitted on this property.

Camping prices are per person/per day. Camping is dispersed camping. Please practice “leave no trace” principles and pack out all trash. You will need to supply your own water.  No open fires allowed.  Four full RV hookup sites are available for use. Please reach out as we need to check with the owner to see if a full hookup site is available for your dates.
